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?

  1. Ahhh, Walk On The Wild Side heb ik ook gehaald! I love Bad Boys moet ook nog komen, wilde alleen nog niet alles halen ivm vast opkomende acties en omdat ik als ik eenmaal begin met kleurtjes uitkiezen, ik gewoon het hele schap leeghaal, en dat moet ook niet...

  15. Haha, herkenbaar :P Heb er nu zelf wel behoorlijk wat meegenomen, maar da's ook om te swatchen voor op m'n blog zodat anderen ze al kunnen zien voor ze ze kopen. Goed excuus om m'n mandje vol te gooien, niet? :)

  20. Thank you! It's crazy hot here atm, so right now I prefer holo and brights, but when that changes these go back on my nails!

  21. I agree, I think Essence did a great job with bringing out some original colors!

  22. They are, I'm happy with them! Have a bunch more pretties and had to resist wiping the display clean in my basket with my arm, haha.

  23. Swoon ))) must get my hands on some of the new bottles. We'll be lucky to get them this year in Oz (always the last ones to get new releases)

  24. wow,I really love that speckled look of Bluetiful!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hehe, inderdaad. ;) Heb mijn ogen ook laten vallen op Oh My Glitter, voor de rest swatcht bijna iedereen dezelfde kleurtjes, maar dat zullen de nieuwe kleurtjes vast wel zijn. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, en ik wil die nieuwe topcoat!! Maar zal nog wel ages duren voordat ze die hier weer stocken bij de enige Kruidvat in Zwolle die de nailart sectie heeft (en niet eens een uitgebreide sectie), ze krijgen echt kleine aantallen van die topcoats binnen...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow, they all look stunning and something I have to own but I wonder how dark Stuck on you looks? Does it look black in bad lightning? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  28. First of all, thanks for all the commentes you gave today :) I haven't worn it long enough to have seen it in all sorts of light, but so far I'd have to say no, it doesn't look black! If it did, I'd like it less, haha.

  29. We're on the same boat here, I absolutely hate polishes that looks gorgeous in daylight but at night they turn plain black

  30. oooo wow, I bought Walk on the Wild Side for fall, as I had been looking for a dark green (cream, I admit) for a long time, so I haven't tried it on yet but I find it looks gorgeous in your photos! I was thinking of buying I love Bad Boys, but I'm never sure about light blue.. (I love that name though, haha). And maybe I will get Grey-t to be Here after seeing your swatches.. I also have 1000 miles away btw, but sadly I find it looks horrible with my skintone (I hoped it'd be a good nude).
