[Essence] No Hurries, No Worries

When I noticed No Hurries, No Worries at the local drugstore near my mother’s, I could not resist. White. Just pure and plain white.

But what is more, No Hurries, No Worries has great coverage. Shown below is two coats; having some experience with white nail polishes, I feared at least three coats … So overall, this is amazing!

Artificial light. I’ve had No Hurries, No Worries on my nails for three days – topped it with Dior Reflects on day 2. No chipping, no tip wear. 🙂

[Essence] Play With My Mint

Play With My Mint; this is a shade I had wanted to try for so long. Mint green is for sure a favourite colour. This came as a surprise with my Essence advent calendar, hence the cute snowflakes on the lid.

Application was two coats. Perfect mint green – and glossy on its own already (although I sealed the manicure with a top coat).

[Essence] Miss Frost

Yes … that’s wa winter release. I got this for Christmas from my daughter, and since I am into reds, Miss Frost is a beautiful addition to my stash. The red contains a tad of raspberry and also a visible shimmer – but overall the finish is matte!

Two coats shown below. No top coat of course. 😉

[Essence] Lumosi

A winter polish, and a very special one, because my daughter had picked this shade. Lumosi has a lilac base, which is combined with hints of grey and pink, and it also contains pink shimmer. Hence an intestering and quite unique colour in my stash.

[Essence] The Frosted

One more white (although I am currently wearing the new Blanc White by Chanel; finally, I could get my hands on the Spring collection – photos will be shown soon) … The Frosted has a matte (or suède) finish, yet this white contains glitter particles.

This is two coats without top coat under artificial light.

Applying a top coat brings out the shimmer. I took these photos the next morning, so it’s natural daylight. Even though I like matte nail colours, I prefer the glossy look in this case.
