Essence Swatch-a-thon #3

Today I have 3 more Essence polishes to show you, so let's have a look!

Again, my swatches are without top coat. I used 3 coats of the first 2 polishes and 1 coat of the topper.

ITB! dried up darker than in the bottle, and if you look closely, you'll see that there's tiny blue bits in there as well. I like it! And could've probably gotten away with 2 coats of this one too.
GTBH has a gorgeous red/orange/pink shimmer, but on itself it doesn't look so nice with my skintone, it easily gives me lobsterhands. This one did need the 3rd coat to even things out, it was a bit thinner as well.
HTP! isn't a linear holo topper unfortunately, oh how I wish it was! Instead it's holographic microglitter in a tinted base. Still pretty, but that can't beat a linear holo if you ask me. Because of the tinted base you have to be a little bit careful with the application to get it on even.

I also bought the Glowing In The Dark topper, and I was looking forward to making pictures with it, but as you maybe read... it's not a glow in the dark polish at all! If you read the small letters on the back, you'll see that it's actually a glow under black light polish. Big disappointment! I'm not even gonna bother showing you this clear topper (in fact, my sister could make someone happy with it so I don't even have it anymore), but then you know, in case you wanted to buy it as well.

What do you think of these grey polishes and the holo topper?
