Essence - I'm The Moss (Guerilla Gardening Trend Edition)

One of the latest Essence trend editions - Guerilla Gardening has hit our stores. I had the fortune to pick from all the products this TE offers but I only bought two of them. Eyeshadow in My Piece of Land and nail polish in I'm the Moss

The first thing I noticed with the TE nail polishes is the brush. They kept the old flat brush with bristles that are all the same length. I'm so very thankful they didn't include one of their so called 'improved' brushes. I think I'll only be buying polishes from their trend editions and Show Your Feet line from now on.
The brush was great, but the formula could be better. Well, it's not exactly the formula's fault, it's the opacity that bothers me a little. The first layer went on pretty sheer, but I applied a thicker second layer and got away with it. I'd still prefer a slightly more opaque version. This polish is very interesting color wise. I don't think I have anything like it in my collection and it's certainly a rare shade of green in the nail polish world. That's why I bought it in the first place. Although the color is pretty much awesome, it's impossible to photograph it accurately. It's not as green in real life and not as bright either. I'd say asparagus green would be the best description.

A slightly better photo (shot outdoors), but still not color accurate. The polish is more muted in real life. Like a warm army green. If that makes any sense.

  5. Hi, Aelin. I don't comment on the lasting power anymore since it's different for everyone. Besides, I only wore this polish for an hour for swatching purposes.
    Aishila is doing well, thanks for asking. =) She's playful as always, has a little problem with eye watering, but other than that... she's good. =)
