Essence Swatch-a-thon #2

Hey all! The new Essence polishes that I'm showing today are 3 polishes that are very similar in finish, they're all shimmery, sparkly and with some tiny bits of flakies. But they are different, if you look up close you'll see some differences in the color and the amount of shimmer. I do wish that those flakie bits would show up better though, but either way, these too are original colors.

I used 3 coats of each and as usual, no top coat for my swatches. And I was curious how they'd look matte, so I tried that out as well.

My photos show it a bit too orange, it's more peachy.

The application of GBB was fine and could've probably gotten away with 2 coats as well. But the other 2 polishes were thinner, slightly runny even, and they really needed those 3 coats.
I thought Boho Chic would be a tad too orange for my liking, and unfortunately, it indeed is. But I still think it's quite a nice polish, and who knows, I used to dislike green/blue on my nails as well =)
Cookie Love I wasn't sure about, but I think it doesn't match well with my skintone at all! So if you're as pale as I am, but are doubting because of all the pretty shiny shimmer as well, just leave it I'd say.
Gorgeous Bling Bling is a color that I thought I'd find too old red, too brown, if that makes sense, but noes! I actually really liked this one and it's my favorite of these 3.

What do you think of these?
