Essence - Carrie

I wanted to show you this one a few days ago, but things have been just too hectic. I'm not going into details in this post...

This post is named only by Essence Carrie, but I wear it over Essence Mr. Big on both photos. Here are the color drops of both.

Mr. Big reminded me of a band and Carrie reminds me of a song. Of course. =) I guess this is a very musical couple.
I can't say much about this polish. I found it hard to apply, but I guess that's just me. I'm not really good at applying these kind of glitter polishes. Other than that, I like this combo, although I'm not too crazy about it. 

Essence, Mr. Big, 2 coats + Essence, Carrie, 1 coat

What do you think of this couple? Should Mr. Big be with Carrie or not?

*Product was sent to me by Essence. Read my disclosure policy for more information.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Ahhh, some good ol' Upplands Väsby music! :D I don't know about these square glitters... I have one as well, Louise I think (or was it Thelma?), and I haven't used it yet. I don't know... I like glitters sometimes, but... Square? Very hesitant to this. Other than that, these particular ones you have here mean absolutely nothing to me. Essence should've sent you something more wicked. ;)

  2. I'd say that the colours fit well together, Mr. Big goes well with Carrie. It would be hard for me not to wear an added coat of Carrie but that's just because I would love to have some more sparkles :)
    Nice work here, and thanks for sharing!

  3. I have to confess something to all polish freaks: i'm not a glitter person...
    Am i banned from the nail world?

  4. I agree with Lolaa, the glitter is too sparse, needs another coat or two. Those larger glitters are hard to work with, they don't like to apply evenly.

    Carrie and Mr. Big are from Sex and the City, a tv show I have never seen, but is very popular with many US women. They are played by Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth. I love him in old Law and Order tv shows.

  5. @Feline: Essence isn't wicked enough for me. XD

    @Lolaa: I agree with your first sentence. =)

    @Helena: Of course not. I'm not a sheer, OPI, frosty, duochrome fan either and I'm still here. ;D

    @Donna: LOL =D Thanks for letting me know. ;D

  6. Zdaj pa se mi ves čas poje: Caaaarrie, Caaaarie! :D

  7. I definitely like this combo, but I think I'd prefer Carrie over a contrasting color. I really like the square glitter.

  8. Love both of the colors. Not much glitter though! Love the interesting glitters.

  9. Do you know if Essence polishes can be ordered online somewhere? I've seen so many that I love, but just can't get then up here...

  10. @SuperGlam: I don't think they're selling it online. Not that I'd know. Sorry.

  11. Funny thing, you posted this the same day I bought this polish in Venice! lol~!

    Yes...polish addict...I spent time looking for Venice...

  12. Carrie and Mr. Big from Sex and the City! Love it, its totally her with the glitz and glam and a nice classic dark pink to compliment her in Mr. Big. PERFECT! Thanks for sharing!
