Essence - Blair

My favorite from the Glitter-fest is here ...


Wet n Wild, Black Creme, 1 coat + Essence, Blair, 2 coats

It's not looking as pretty on the photos as it does in real life. I guess I failed at photographing it. But I can tell you that I've tried. I don't know when was the last time I took so many photos of just one manicure: in the shade, in the sun, indoors, outdoors, natural/artificial lighting...


I have to say Blair is really nice. Some glitter polishes give me hard time when I'm applying them and the glitters don't wanna show up on the nails - no problems like that with Blair. I applied two coats which dried in a fairly short amount of time. I must admit I really like it. Since the glitters are all silver (the bigger and smaller ones) it would look great on any base color. Can't wait to try it again.


What do you think? Glitterish yay or nay?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  2. Damn, this hexa glitter which makes me look like a Hannah Montana fan, looks sooo stunning on you! Not that I'm surprised or something, but this one really rocks \m/

  4. I had to google to discover who is Blair.
    I am an old lady... :D
    I like the combo of small round glitters and bigger hexagonal glitters. :)

  5. I love this. I like that the hex glitter lays flat. With a lot of hex glitter polishes I have the glitter pieces curve up. Beautiful.

  6. You did a great job of application - I have Blair and I had a heck of a time getting it to apply so smoothly. Looks perfect!

  7. @Pani Skeffington: Oh, come on! You're gonna ruin it for me, mentioning Hannah Montana... XD I rather think of it as a rockstar polish - something like studs on leather belt. ;)

    @Christina - PeeBeforePolish: You know what - I didn't know it either. I Googled it as well and now I know it's from Gossip Girl. I don't watch that show, but I've heard of it before. I don't really care where the name came from, but now that you've mentioned it, I had to check. =)
    P.S: Did I mention I love your blog name? It's so true! Best nail polishing tip ever!

  8. Cute! I like to do the same with another Essence top coat, which is Circus Confetti - looks almost the same (a mix a small and big glitters) but multicoloured, not just silver. Though, looking at it, I might have to get this one too, as it's really nice!

  10. Yay! I love it. From reading your blog, it's made me fall in love with Essence stuff but I can't get it anywhere in the UK! I've tried online but they don't ship :(

  12. Všeč so mi tele srebrne bleščice, bi jih tud jaz večkrat nosila, amapak jih tako težko dol spravim, da si vedno premislim. Je pa užitek gledat tvoje dovršene nohte;)

  13. Big fat YAY! :D It's my fave glitter topper too, I love that the glitters are a darker shade of silver and the different sizes glitter make it so dynamic :)

  14. @Nail Stories: It really is a shame that Essence can't be purchased everywhere in Europe. It's available in the US and for LOWER price than here. That just sucks!

    @moyca: Hvala!

    @Jane: Well, you make all the glitter polishes look so good, so I figured I should give them a chance as well. =) Blair really is a great one.

  19. Your nails look perfect! I like this glitter a lot.

    I really really wish Essence was more easily available in the States. It's one of my favorite brands!

  20. Beautiful! I guess it would also look interesting in combination with a chrome polish :)

    ReplyDelete

  24. I think it looks great! I'll have to get that one too :)
    I do have the green one already, and that one was a PITA to photograph as well, I totally failed it and will have to try again. So I assume this one's the same to capture, and I think you did a good job on that =)

  25. Big yay! :D I <3 these Essence Nail Twins, they have such great glitter topcoats! I wish they sold them in the US!!

  27. Damn - I bought three different silverish Essence nail polishes in the last month and it looks like I am going to have to get yet another one, since Blair looks simply fantastic, especially when combined with a black base colour. Love!

  28. looooooove it !!! (i'm trying to find one like this for ages in France)
    :)

  29. Love the glitter look. I think you captured the manicure very well. I also hate when the glitter disappears on the manicure. I have some NYX polishes that barely put any of their flakies or glitter on the nail. Very annoying. Like this manicure very much.

  30. It looks like stars against the night sky! Love it!

  31. this one drives me crazy when I try to take it off, I'm starting to hate it! it literally doesn't want to come off :/
