Essence August 2014 News

''As of August, the fall/winter season is about to become even more attractive with lots of must-have products that are joining the essence range. Cool looks with a wow-effect are guaranteed!'' (Essence)
Colour update! From pastel yellow to bright orange and red as well as soft rose and lilac – in August, 15 new and trendy shades are joining the colour & go range. In addition to a cool suede finish in denim blue and a matt-effect in pink, there is also a white nail polish with fantastic coverage that can be used as a nail polish or as a colour-intense base coat. The brilliant gel-shine finish with a highly intensive shine has an extremely short drying time to guarantee perfectly polished nails in a flash! Available in 15 new and a total of total of 50 trendy shades. 



New effects! Electric feathers, twinkling bling bling, galaxy flakes, holographics and party jewels – new effects in trendy it-colourslike red, purple-pink, emerald or gold will make the hearts of all true nail fashionistas beat a little faster in August. The nail polishes are easy to apply, have a high coverage and create 3D wow-manicures. Available in eleven new and a total of 22 colours with six different effects. 


Weather expert! The thermo nail polish is brand new in the essence nail cosmos. This nail polish reacts to outside temperature changes and changes color accordingly: purple-pink turns into light pink, dark red into light red, dark mint green to light mint green and beige to light apricot. And the color-change works the other way around, too. Cool nail polishes with a guaranteed wow-effect! Available in a total of four colors. 

Fabulous foils! These nail foils bring cool graffiti styles straight to your nails in the most fashionable effects – holographic, metallic and glittering. And here’s how it works: apply the transfer solution on your nails and wait for 80-90 seconds. Separate a piece of the foil and press it onto your nail with the shiny side up. Remove the foil again and seal with a top coat – and you’re done! Repeat this step for each nail. Totally creative and unique! 

Shake it! The name of this top coat says it all. Simply shake the bottle of shake me! i’m pretty top coat to mix the cool holographic glitter particles with the texture. Apply the top coat over any nail polish for an extra portion of bling. 

Super sand style! This top coat with an innovative sand effect is a true must-have. Apply your favorite nail polish, leave to dry and then apply the sand top coat on top to give any color a fantastic, slightly matt 3D structure with subtle shimmer particles.

Models Own - Amethyst

My one and only - Amethyst from the Models Own Velvet Goth collection.
''Five intensely inky pigmented colours each with an extraordinary 2D finish. Matte yet sparkly at the same time, each shade applies glossy and dries down giving a multi-faceted effect that can be seen but not felt!'' (Models Own)
This is what Models Own says about the collection. It's all true. This polish is matte and sparkly at the same time. The effect can be seen, but the polish is smooth to the touch. Love it!

I love this one. Even more than I thought I would. It applies nicely, you only need to be quick, because it dries fast. Two coats are enough for full opacity and once it dries, it turns matte. The matte effect doesn't dull the sparkly glitter too much though - if it does (for your taste), you can always add a layer of top coat and voila! I used the foil removal technique and it came off without problems. What can I say: two thumbs up!

Swatches & Review: Dance Legend Holodays Collection - Anthem, Different View and New Promise

If you liked my yesterday's post, then I'm sure you're gonna love this one. Three shades from the Dance Legend Holodays collection - holographic shades with added scattered holographic shimmer. Holodays collection consists of 6 different shades. You can check them out on Dance Legend online store. These are my three picks from the collection: Anthem, Different View and New Promise.

If I had to, I'd pick Holodays over Galaxy collection. I was always more fond of holographic polishes than duo- and multichromes, plus the shades from the Holodays collection I got are all 2-coaters. Wonderful. They also come in smaller 6,5 mL bottles with a round brush. The formula is great, application is easy and drying time is short. Removal is easy as well. I love purple polish, but I think this time Different View got me... It's so gorgeous in real life. A true chameleon. Multichromes, holos and shimmer? I doubt this can be topped. =) I recommed!

Swatches & Review: Dance Legend Galaxy Collection - Comet Tail, Pulsar and Solar Eclipse

Ready for another Dance Legend collection? This one is called Galaxy and consists of 6 permanent shades and 2 limited edition shades. You can see them all on the Dance Legend online store. Galaxy nail polish shades are duochromes, or better said multichromes with scattered holographic shimmer. I got to pick three shades from the collection - I chose Comet Tail, Pulsar and Solar Eclipse.

The photos above were shot outdoors on natural lighting. All three shades were 3 coaters which is nothing surprising considering they're duo/multichromes. They all come in smaller 6,5 mL bottles and not in a regular full size Dance Legend bottles - that means they have a regular round brush. Formula was good and so was the application. If you're not a fan of three-coaters, you can use these shades for layering as well. The duochrome effect won't be as visible, but the holo shimmer will make the polish ''come alive''.

Swatches & Review: Dance Legend Smoky Collection - Cozy Sweater, Moorland and Cetraria

My collection of Dance Legend polishes just grew a little, so make sure to check my blog in future as well for more DL swatches. Smoky collection came out in Spring and the colors were perfect for spring time - pastels, but not the way we're used to see them. No, shades from the Smoky collection contain super small black shimmer which makes all the difference. Although the colors are nice and spring-y, they also look murky at the same time. Very original, in my humble opinion. 

Smoky collection consists of 6 shades. You can see them all on Dance Legend online store. I got to swatch three of them. I picked: Cozy Sweater, Moorland and Cetraria.

What can I say? Dance Legend rocks. Not only are they capable of releasing more collections in one season, they're also capable of releasing original nail polish shades for that matter. So very refresing. =) Well, originality doesn't mean a lot if the polish is of poor quality, right? Fear not! Dance Legend people know what they're doing. The formula on these three polishes was great and consistent. It felt a bit runny and thin to me at first and it made me wonder how many coats it will take to achieve full opacity. Guess what. Two were enough. The application was easy thanks to formula and great flat brush (I love DL brushes!) and drying time was short. What more could you possibly want?
