Essence Swatch-a-thon #1

I've started swatching all the new Essence polishes that I bought yesterday, and I'll split them up into several posts, so here's the first! What I like about the new bottles is that they still have a colored cap, that the cap has a click system so you know when it's properly closed, and that the cap is easier to hold when polishing. That the bottles are also easier to hold when making pictures is a bonus. The new brush is ok, I'm not crazy about it but it's not bad. I'm not too fond of the long bottleneck though, wonder how that combined with the shape of the whole bottle will work out when there's isn't so much polish left in the bottle.

I used 3 thin coats for all these swatches, but if you apply your polish thicker, I think you can get away with 2 as well. All swatches are without top coat.

I really like all the shimmers in these, did you see that even I'm Bluetiful has a very subtle blue shimmer? I'm sure I'll enjoy these during Fall and Winter! Have you tried any of the new polishes already?
