Essence - The Stiletto (Show Your Feet ''High Heel Mania'' Trend Edition)

New Essence trend edition under the Show Your Feet line is called High Heel Mania and offers five new  SYF toe nail polish shades. They all have names connected to shoes: The Stiletto, The Pump, The Peeptoe, The Wedge and The Gladiator. The only one I got is The Stiletto

Essence Show Your Feet ''High Heel Mania'' Trend Edition

The Stiletto is a warm purple shade with blue micro shimmer which is quite visible in the bottle, but not as much on the nails. My indoor 'crappy' photos aren't really color accurate... The Stiletto is a lot warmer in real life and it reminds me of P2 Chic in low light. They're obviously not dupes, but they do look alike from a distance.

The Stiletto is a nice polish which looks better on these photos then it does in real life. I wish it was more like  this - cooler, with visible shimmer, but I ended up with another purple that looks creme in most lighting circumstances. I don't want to complain too much about the color - it's a very nice one. The thing that bothers me the most is the opacity. It could be a two coater, but it doesn't have enough depth for me when I only use two layers of it. The brush and formula were nice and so was the application. I'm not totally feeling it and it's the opacity that bothers me.

    You have so beautiful cuticles :)) I use cuticle remover, cuticle pusher sometimes even cuticle nippers. I try to apply hand cream and leave him for the night but I never had such beautiful hands. Please leave me some tips ;)

  7. The colour is fabulous! But I know what you're saying, sometimes gorgeous colours make less of an impact because the depth we get by looking at the polish in the bottle is not the same we get by looking at it on our nails :/
    But it's still a beautiful colour and your crappy( say what?)indoor photos do do it justice ;)

    ps.In love with the last photo :)
