Essence - Where is the Party?

As I told you in my previous post, I'm gonna buy all the even slightly interesting shades from the Essence Colour & Go line, because you never know when they're gonna disappear from the stores. Where's the Party has never been my type of shade. It looks frosty and the color is just undefineable.


Essence, Where is the Party?, 3 coats

Let's take a look of the color drop again ... See all the color changing? From purple through yellow to green, teal and blue. Beautiful.

Where's the Party? I guess the party is in the bottle and I'm not invited. This multichrome effect doesn't show on my nails no matter how much I twist and turn my hands. It doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad polish though. I mean... my nails are so flat - if they were half as curvy as my ass, maybe the colors would show up just fine. Maybe.

My nails get a lavender-ish frosty purple with dirty green lowlights. Not what I was expecting.

Although this polish isn't a big success in my eyes, it's not a complete failure either. It applies quite nicely for a frosty polish and the formula is good as well. It does need 3 coats for full opacity, but what are you gonna do... For €1.49 I'd suggest you to at least try it. I think I'm keeping it.

What do you think about this color? Yay or nay?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

    1. actually, it's a dupe of Iron Mermaiden
      I own Iron Mermaiden, but the effect is poor and color looks good only in the bottle or with using glitter topper...I should have bought Where's The Party, cause I've seen wearing it on my friends and it looked so much better! =]

  2. I have the exact same.. I bought it because it looked so pretty in the bottle, but on my nails the effect just didn't show up. I'm not sure about the colour without the duochrome.. Not my colour I guess! x

  3. That's really odd that the multichrome effect doesn't show up on your nails! I have this color too and on me, it really is visible.
    But it still looks good on you though! :)

  4. Hi there!
    I think you are right. I have seen photos of that shade before and it looked like a true duo: http://tudosobreesmaltes.com/2011/08/11/where-is-the-party-essence/

  5. Pity you don't like it very much. It's one of the prettiest C&Gs imo.

  7. I bought this polish as soon as it was available here because of all that bottle prettyness, but I guess I wasn't invited to the party either.
    It was disappointing. Well, a frost polish lover will probably love it a lot, but I hate that finish and the brush strokes that come along with it :p

  8. "...The party is in the bottle and I'm not invited..." LOL, you're so witty sometimes!!

  9. Well it's somewhat disappointing compared to the bottle, but if you don't look at the bottle you have a very nice polish. Definitively yay for me!

  10. Haha! "if they were half as curvy as my ass" I lol'ed (even though I hate 'lol').. I see what you mean :)

  11. it's an okay polish in my eyes. not too special, but not too dull. =)
    and, you know, some of us would actually really want to have a curvy ass... or at least a noticeable one ;) so I don't be so harsh on yourself :D ;D

  12. V steklenički me spominja na 490 Iron Mermaiden od Catrice (ki ga imam ravno tudi sama na nohtih), na nohtih je pa precej drugačen, bolj vijoličen in v bistvu mi je ta od Essence bolj všeč (sem si ga že ogledovala v živo). Ampak 5 ml in 3 plasti - to pomeni, da bi ga jaz lahko uporabila maksimalno 2-krat :/

  13. I got this color recently because of how beautiful it looked in the bottle! A bit dissapointing, but I like it nonetheless!

  14. Imam ga, pa čeprav je dupe od Zoya Ki, ga kar ne nanesem ponovno. Kaj pa vem ... saj je lep, ampak tudi mene moti da se zelo hitro vidi poteg čopiča.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Meni je ta odtenek zelo všeč, pa se premalokrat znajde na mojih nohtih. Vedno pozabim na ta lakec.... :)

  16. I quite like this color. I bought this thinking it looked awesome and different, then realized it's a dupe for Zoya Ki which I also already own, doh!!

  17. I just love your Photos! The Swatches and the bottle picture are just awesome!

    I like polishes like Where is the Party?, Iron Mermaiden or Not like the movies, but the grey-purple-green color change is somewhat special and I couldn't wear it every day.

    Thank your for these great pictures, the are the best photos of Where is the party? I have ever seen!

  18. I like it. Lucky me that now in Slovakia all colour and go are for 0,79

  19. *note to self* ... don't wear this on my fat water logged nails.

    However, when my nails shrivel up and are really dry, I may find the party!

  20. Meni ga nikoli ne uspe lepo namazati, nevem zakaj. Je že na pol prazen, kot polno manikuro ga pa še nisem nosila XD

  21. I have the same problem with some multichromes, they just don't show up on my nails. Mine aren't "flat" so that can't be the entire explanation. :)

  22. Where's the Party? I guess the party is in the bottle and I'm not invited.

    Hahaha, I love those sarcastic comments of yours :)

  23. "I guess the party is in the bottle and I'm not invited". Hahahahaha... You just made me laugh with this sentence :)

    I have exactly same thoughts about this polish... I own it too and don't like it much either. Too bad :(

  24. Hey there! I think you should try to layer it over some black nail polish. I bought a similar colour from a Brazilian brand and you only get to see the real party if you layer it on top of a black nail polish - with just 1 coat! I like it anyway, but it might be more interesting in this combo. ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't care for this color either. In my case, I don't think I like the purple / green duochrome (nonexistent) combo. I don't think it looks bad on your nails, but I can see what you mean about it feeling "flat."

    ReplyDelete
  26. LOl I love that "I guess I wasn't invited to the party". I have it, but I haven't worn it yet. I think I just might go put that on now. Even the duo don't come on to the nails, its still pretty. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's so strange that you didn't get the duochrome effect! I always use two coats of it (no layering) and the color changing is obvious! I wonder if the party is in another bottle?! So so strange.
    BTW, love that Arya is staying with you!

  28. Beautiful, I just got this one recently and will have to try it soon :)

  29. I think it's a gorgeous color! Mildly annoying when all the colors don't show up on the nails. I have polishes like that. The bottle color look better.

  30. Tale je definitivno zanimiv, vendar meni osebno niso všeč odtenki, ki se prelivajo iz vijolične v zeleno in si ga najbrž ne bi kupila imava pa seveda različen okus in tako je prav ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'd say it's a yay. In fact I just bought it. Now I just hope that the duochrome shows just a little bit on my nails. :D
