My Top Essence Nail Polish Picks For Spring

Hi Everyone!

Welcome back to a brand new blog post. Yes, I know I’ve really been slacking but as most of you know, I’m writing my drivers test next week. I am beyond scared but when I got home from my lesson I was alerted that I had won a hamper from Beauty Bulletin! I’m going to keep it a secret but if you head over to my Instagram: sincerelydeeanne you will know what it is!

I wanted to share my top picks for Spring from Essence Cosmetics. I love Essence because I feel that it’s an extremely affordable option for students on a budget. I personally paint my nails every Sunday and this will be good for 3 – 4 days if you use it in conjunction with the base and top coat. The nail polishes retail at about R27 at Clicks or Dischem.

I just wanted to point out that I do live in South Africa. I know most people are moving into the Fall season, however I am in the Southern Hemisphere so we are moving into Spring and Summer.

From left to right:

Essence I Heart Trends, The Nudes range in 09 You’re So Beautiful: This nude is my favourite out of my selection because I love natural looking nails. I like to cut my nails short and then paint them with this colour. It’s natural, neat and pretty darn amazing. What impressed me the most was that this one was not prone to chipping and I love a chip free polish.

Essence The Gel Nail Polish in 08 Whatever!: A bright and playful pink, which reminds me of bubblegum. I love wearing this on my toes more than my fingers but I feel that this one needed more than one coat in order to give of that bright pink finish. Love it still and would definitely recommend it.

Essence The Gel Nail Polish in 21 A Whisper of Spring: I think the name says it all. A very light lavender which looks amazing on both toes and fingers. I love how soft the colour is and very girly.

Essence The Gel Nail Polish in Play With My Mint: This bright mint colour looked really appealing on the shelf and I loved how it looked on my fingers. I must say this one did chip which for me was a bit of an oopsie but it happens and I did get a new one.

Essence The Gel Nail Polish in Wild White Ways: Soft white is my favourite go-to when painting my nails if I’m not in the mood for a colour. It reminds me of the Kardashians in a way because that’s Kim’s favourite colour to wear on her nails.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 10 – My Fave Nail Polishes

I should probably start off this post by saying no, this post is NOT sponsored by Sorbet or any other brand for that matter. Side note: Has anyone ever heard of Glambassador or has been contacted by them before? Just want to know if it’s legit (:

Hi everyone, we are a third of the way through the 30 day blogging challenge and I am coming to you today with another favourites post. Today I’ll be talking about my fave nail polishes at the moment.

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

Essence The Gel Nail Polish – 21 A Whisper of Spring: I’ve been wanting to try a light lavender shade for the longest time and I’ve tried nail polishes from Essence before and I must admit they chip really quickly. With the gel polish and my gel coat from Sorbet I don’t experience that problem and it’s a really great colour pay off and the consistency isn’t too watery.

Sorbet – Red Light: Probably my favourite shade out of all the ones featured in this post. Great cherry red colour and it’s such a deep colour without the watery consistency as I’ve mentioned before and I really like that after 1 coat, it was good enough to go.

Sorbet – Blush: Such a cute and girly colour without being too obvious. Great for a nude look and just so soft which I adore. I received this in a set of 3 along with red light and the gel coat as a gift from Matthew’s (my boyfriend) mom. It even came with a cute travel case for your nail polishes.

Sorbet – Vanilla Ice: I’ve tried many blue nail polishes before but this one definitely blew me away. I really like soft colour nail polishes because I feel like I have fat fingers so I don’t like to attract attention to my fingers very often. Colour pay off I would rate a 7/10 due to the fact that you have to apply 2-3 coats to get the shade you want.

Sorbet – Pink Cheeks: A bright pop of pink which I wear when I feel more daring and usually I will wear this colour on my toes. It’s a fun and flirty colour.

Sorbet – Gel Top Coat: I think that what I loved the most about this gel coat is that I can remove it with nail polish remover and it comes off really easy. That way I don’t damage my nails which often leads to breakage and sometimes my nails won’t grow at all after a gel mani which is why I tend to stay away from those.

 

Hope you enjoyed! Any post suggestions?
