Glistening Rock

No words needed. Just observe the beauty of these two polishes together.



Essence, Just Rock It, 2 coats + Essence, Glisten Up, 2 coats



If Glisten Up was a Nfu Oh polish, everybody would be talking about it and a lot of nail polish junkies would pay big bucks to get it. But it's just Essence and noone gives a shit. At least that's what it looks like.
€100 for Chanel Riva on Ebay, €14 for OPI or €2 for Essence nail polish? The era of expensive nail polish has to end. Way to go, Essence!

*drool*



I saw a few reviews on NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils on different blogs. That reminded me to bring out my Jumbo pencil in Purple and try it out. Again.



Product used:

* NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Purple
* 120 Eyeshadow Palette
* Essence Black Mania eye pencil
* Maybelline Lash Stylist mascara
* nail art flakies I got from Stiletto



That's it for now. I gotta go to bed and get some sleep. I've been walking around like a zombie for the last few days.

Thanks for looking!

  5. That polish combo is gorgeous. I am writing the colours down so I can see if I can find them, here.

    I am not a polish snob. Ninety-mine cents a bottle? Ten bucks a bottle? Who cares? As long as the polish is fabulous. :D

  6. Essence does have a ton of really pretty polishes. And so cheap! I say way to go too!

    The look you did looks gorgeous with your eye color!

  10. Oh that's a great combo ! I have glisten up and I don't really use it. I'm gonna try it over a blue polish like you did. I'm rocking China Glaze Frostbite right now so maybe it could work on this one too ?! I love your makeup too ;)

  11. You're absolutely right: sometimes it seems to be more about the brand then the colour of product or whatever. I think it is 2 thumbs up for Essence that their quality keeps getting better and better!

    The colour combo of these are awesome!

    Love,

  12. Some brands really ARE overpriced indeed, Essence has (especially for it's pricerange) amazing colors and Glisten Up is a gem in my collection. Your combi looks gorgeous! ♥

  13. I couldn't agree more about what you said of expensive polishes.
    I weare that combination last week (but I just glisten up my pinky finger) and I also LOVE it.

    And you are so right - if it was an expensive flackie everyone alredy had talked about it.

    I alredy got 3, but I will by a couple more. It is just gorgeous.

    You should try a matte coat before you remove it. I did and it was so cool. Check it on my Blog.

    Love
    Tânia

    P.S.: Sorry for no comment very often on your blog, but I visit you everyday. Big Hug.

  14. I absolutely loooove your eye makeup! :D

    I love those colors I need to try and find Glisten Up I've been wanting that forever.

    Go get some beauty sleep. :)

  15. I've actually been wondering for a while. I've been seeing loads of essence and catrice swatches in the nail world, and the colours really seem awesome, with a great range. But what about the formula, and the brushes? I'd be really greatful if you could give a short review, as I live in Hong Kong, and I really want to know if they're worth it before I start begging my friends to haul me some over summer vacation...=P I'd really appreciate it!x))

  16. Wow, that's gorgeous! I wish I could get Essence where I am. I get where you are coming from, and I'm starting to get more into the cheaper brands lately. I used to be a brand snob, but I'm past that now. All I care about at this point is that the shade is interesting and the formula is workable.

  17. I really like the Essence Glisten Up. It's always nice to find more cost worthy polishes that are exciting and not of the normal boring. Wish I could get essence where I live. It's a nice combo too.

    ReplyDelete
  18. oh my goodness! that is sooo awesome! Thanks so much for showing that! Swoons! *rushes to Ebay to see if I can find it here in the US!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh, I definitely agree with you on that. If this was a Chanel shade everyone would be describing the hell out of it and singing it's praises left and right.... oh the shimmer this... the glitter particles that... macro close-ups would be taken under a gazillion different lightning conditions to bring out esoteric shades of subtle shimmer that would be otherwise invisible to the naked eye... etc, etc... Haha it's quite funny sometimes. I just took one look at Riva and found it to be a quite boring, ordinary baby blue. No need to dissect it under a microscope.

  23. I've layered two coats of Glisten Up! over ChG - Frostbite and it's gorgeous ! I've blogged about it here and I gave you credits for it ;)

  30. This is a wonderful association, why have I never thought of wearing these two polishes together? Thanks for the idea!!!! <3

  31. Hi, gorgeous combination... I love flakies, but they are scarce in Czech republic... fortunately Essence is almost everywhere :-) Do you know if they have any more flakies besides the Night in Vegas, the city that never sleeps (from Color3) and this green one? Because I didn't notice those at first glance, so I'm wondering what else I've missed.
