Essence Swatch Spam!

Morning Ladies and Gents :) 


I have a bit of Essence swatch spam to show you. Recently Essence showed up in Canada, YAY! They carry a line of 20 5mL polishes in Shoppers Drug Mart. I have managed to find 15 of them and I don't feel bad about that because they are only $1.49 each! Love! I'm going to show you my collection throughout the rest of the week :)

Wake Up! And woah does this polish wake you up! It is a really bright orange creme. I used 3 coats here to get rid of a few bald spots. This is so in your face and wonderful, I can see using it in a bunch of nail art too!

Look at how bright that is! :D


essence-walk-on-air


Walk on Air This is a stunning royal blue jelly creme. I needed 3 coats for this swatch. Not terribly unique, but I really like it!

Again I can see myself using this in a lot of nail art. 


essence-space-queen


Space Queen This is a micro glitter topcoat. The glitter almost looks slightly holo and iridescent. This is one coat over Walk on Air

essence-walk-of-fame


Walk of Fame This is a purple toned brown, taupe creme. I don't think I have anything else like it in my collection! Unfortunately the bottle that I got had a crazy wonky brush! It took a lot of clean up. It needed two coats. I might pick up another bottle of this to try and get a better brush. I do really like the colour though!

essence-a-luxury-secret


A Luxury Secret  Now I don't know where the luxury is on this one. It's a nice polish, but not really my thing. It's a dark brown, steely gray frosty shimmer. I felt like I could see brush strokes. This is 2 coats.

I'm so excited that these little babies have made it to Canada and for such a cheap price! The formula on all of them was awesome. I'm really happy that I've got these and hope some of the LE ones will make it here too! 


Have you picked up any of these? What do you think of them?


I'll show you some more of my pretties tomorrow morning!

  2. Every time I've gone to Shopper's since these arrived, all I see is a near-empty display with one or two really ugly frosty ones left! lol. Now I'm on a no-buy for another few weeks, though, so maybe there will be more when I'm allowed to buy them - you made them look awesome, especially Walk On Air!

  3. I've got about 30 of them, at €1,25 they're a steal! They've got some really pretty colours and they dry quickly, too.

    Walk of fame is one of my favourites, too!
