Essence - New Colors! Chic Reloaded, Gorgeous Bling Bling, Grey-t To Be Here, Walk on the Wild Side

I picked up a few new Essence polishes at Ulta the week before last.  Essence has revamped their bottle - which is a great improvement as it is a little bigger and much more aesthetically pleasing (curvy!) and they have also updated their brush for the better.  Now the brush is very much like the Sally Hansen Complete Manicure brushes vs stick straight and hard to load.  Along with the 4 that I'm going to show you, I also bought Date in the Moonlight, which was a really pretty shimmery navy blue, but was a big BUST.  It was all weird and linty for some reason when I applied it, even though my nails were perfectly clean, so I didn't take any pictures of it.  Plus, it BUBBLED. Ew.  I'm going to try it again in the future, maybe add some polish thinner to it, but not anytime soon :o/

All these polishes applied very nicely and were all 3 coats with a base coat of Orly Bonder.  I only used a top coat on Walk on the Wild Side.  I should also mention they are a buck 99 a piece.  Nice!

First up:  Gorgeous Bling Bling.  I'm on the fence about this one.  It's really pretty, but I don't know if i really liked it with my skin color or maybe it was the color itself..  I don't know.  It's like a Cognac-y color with flecks of gold mixed in, which is nice, but maybe not so much for a nail polish color.  Maybe I would have liked it more if it was a smidge darker or richer.  Oh and what's with the name??!!

Next is Grey-t to be Here.  A grey with iridescent pink shimmer.  Gorgeous!!

Chic Reloaded.  All I can say is Duo-chrome awesome-ness for $1.99.  Go buy it.

And finally Walk on the Wild Side.  Veeeery pretty.  Even better with SV top coat.  Green shimmery goodness.  This first pic below is the truest to its actual color.  I apologize for the variation in color and blame it on my camera. ☺  

 What do you think of these?  Gonna buy???  Have you tried Essence before?

Until next time!  ☻
