I've recently found myself in front of the Essence Floral Grunge Trend Edition display. The only item that caught my attention was nail polish in Black to the Roots with the rough label on the cap. Interesting and my kind of color. I think the blusher looked rather nice too, but I already have a ton of blushers, so I passed on it.
Black to the Roots is a black-ish nail polish with small square silver glitter. The polish dries into a satin-y finish and the glitter gives it a bit of a texture. It's not too bad though. I don't feel uncomfortable wearing it by itself (like with some sanding/gritty shades).
Essence, Black to the Roots (Floral Grunge TE), 2 coats
Two coats of Black to the Roots are enough to achieve an opaque look. The polish dries fast and is not too gritty. I'm so happy I finally found a normal flat brush in Essence nail polish. Flat and not too bushy brush makes the application very easy. I wouldn't mind some more glitter in this one, but it's also pretty cool as it is.
It looks edgier without top coat, but for those who don't like satin or matte finish it's pretty in glossy edition as well. How do you like it better?
Thanks for looking and commenting!
