Essence - Soak Up the Sun (Sun Kissed Trend Edition)

I didn't think I needed this Essence polish until I saw photos of it on Candy Glaze blog. Soak Up the Sun is one of the shades from Sun Kissed trend edition and is perfect for anyone who likes dark, vampy colors on their nails.

Soak Up the Sun is a brownish red color (could also be described as maroon color) which dries a bit darker than it looks in the bottle. It doesn't look black in low light, but it is pretty dark. In my humble opinion, it looks much more classy than a regular black nail polish (although classy usually isn't the thing I'm going for). I sort of kissed and made up with the brush (sort of) but I still don't like it. I like the formula though. Two thin coats and there you have it.

And here's the reason I don't have any outdoor photos of the polish although I did went out with the intention to capture Soak Up the Sun in natural lighting. Bombi is a kamikaze master. Walk the stairs with him and try to stay alive. I'm just saying...

  1. It's nice to see a break from summer colors. Sometimes a girl just wants to be a little vampy :)

  2. I love reds like this! Usually I dislike red polishes, but this is just the right kind of red. And I know what you mean by cats and stairs, that's just an accident waiting to happen. I'm so glad we live in an apartment and don't have stairs, me and my boyfriend have 6 cats and they are doing their best in trying to make us trip over - it's a miracle neither one of us haven't fallen and crushed our skulls on the radiator.

  5. Hi! I'm new to your blog (just found it while googling)
    I've recently purchased a few of the essence colors (ok, let's be honest, I bought 10) in the "color & go" line. I find that they chip really quickly!!! Even with a great top coat. Do you have the same experience with that line? I am thinking of sticking to P2 from now on when I go to DM...
    Are the other Essence lines much better? Thanks! :)
