Essence regularly surprises me with beautiful and stunning nail colours. Here is another pick from their standard range, Take me to Heaven. It’s a pale aqua (or sky blue, if we consider the name) blue with blue shimmer.
Excellent coverage. Shown below is two coats.
This is pretty much how it looked like on the third day – no chipping, no (or just minimal) tipwear. And one of the most beautiful shades.
Another set of photos which I took during the summer, in August, when I spent a couple of weeks at my mother’s. Hence you’ll notice the small hothouse in the background, as well as the garden in full bloom.
I’ve shown Dancing with Nureyev before, and it is still one of my favourite holos and A England colours. Two coats applied.
This is a colour you’ve seen before in this blog: Porcelaine. Pastel blue. Two coats shown below.
Here’s an iridescent shade, shifting between lilac and blue, Guardians of the Unicorn (nice name too).
Application was two coats. I took these photos right after swimming, so my cuticles might look a bit dry.
Natural light inside the house.
Coco Blue is not new at all but this fresh light blue with its subtle shimmer goes so well with – spring (if it had already arrived). Thus it is still one of my favourite blue nal colours. This is the relaunch of Spring 2012 and I’ve shown the Vogue Fashion’s Night Out version of 2011 before: Coco Blue.
Two coats shown below.
Pastel blue, the name says it.
It’s beautiful in the bottle and even more beautiful on the nail. Pastels can be tricky regarding patches but Blue Pastel looked pretty after just two coats.
This ia a beautiful shade by Essence from last year (Winter collection, as the bottle says), The Semi Matt. Pastel blue with grey undertones, definitely a subtle and pretty colour, with a semi-matte finish.
However, the finish is not really semi-matte; shown below is two coats with top coat, but even without the top coat, The Semi Matt (ignore its name though) presented a rather glossy finish. At least no suède one, as I had hoped for. Nevertheless, the colour is beautiful, as mentioned before.
