Essence - Dare It Nude...

Hi!

Today I have some pictures of a nude Essence nailpolish for you...




This is Essence The Gel Nail Polish - Dare It Nude, a very rich and creamy crème nude polish. 





Dare It Nude is a creme polish which applies very easy and opaque in only two coats.




I think it is a pretty color, but it is a bit too dark and doesn't match my skintone as much as I like to get the all known "Mannequin hands" :(









In case you don't know this brand or system, I'll explain how it works:

Essence The Gel Nail Polish is "a gel system" which gives you the effect of gel, but it applies as polish. You don't need a lamp, just a base- color and topcoat and you're done!








On this picture you can see well that the color it is just a tad too dark for me. Ah well...

In The Netherlands Essence The Gel Nail Polish is available at Kruidvat for €1,69.
I almost have the whole collection now :D

Do you own any Essence The Gel Nail Polish colors?
If so, what are your favorites? Please let me know in the comments below...


Thanks for stopping by!

Essie Urban Jungle...

Hi girls,

I recently received my first Essie polish...
Essie Urban Jungle


It's a beautiful beige crème with a hint of pink in it...
I admit I was a bit disappointed when I twisted the cap, opened the polish and saw the very thin brush...
I'm a bit spoiled with the big and wide OPI brush, but this brush didn't really bothered me whilst painting my nails...

What surprised me, was the opacity of this polish!
I have a lot of flesh/nude colored polishes but they often are very sheer or watery... 
Urban Jungle was not! :-)



I used two normal coats with no top coat this time... 

Another advantage about this polish is that it evens out itself (self levelling) so I didn't needed top coat to smooth it all out. And it's so shiny too!

Well... You can say I'm in LOVE with Urban Jungle and I'm so glad I bought this polish together with another pretty Essie polish which I will show soon :-)

Thanks for watching!

E.L.F. Desert Haze

Hi girls,

As you might already know, I'm a sucker for nudes... I just ♥ nude polishes!

So today I want to show you an untried bottle of nude polish from E.L.F. (Eyes Lips Face) called Desert Haze:



This is my first E.L.F. polish and although I had shaken the bottle very well (it was a bit watery) some of the brushstrokes were a bit sheer (of rather translucent), while others were really creamy!

The first couple of strokes were bad, and so I thought: ofcourse! That's why these polishes are so cheap!
But later on the polish went on better and better. So I think it has been the lack of use during all these months of just laying in a drawer of my helmer :)



I don't know if 'nude' is the right word for this color... It's a bit beige too, but for me this polish can be categorized as a nude polish...





I'm wearing this color for 2 days now, and I think it can use some nailart, or something like that.
Working on that! Stay tuned...

What do you think about E.L.F. polishes? Do you own and like them?

Thanks for dropping by!

White Crackle Pay Days

Hi everyone!

Today I would like to show you my previous manicure Misa Pay Days Are Happy Days (click here) topped with China Glaze Crackle Glaze Lightning Bolt (picture heavy!):


I know crackle polishes are a bit "been-there-done-that" but I haven't used them that much, and when the sun is shining, for some reason they are more appealing to me :)


I don't know what it is, but when it's sunny, I just easier grab a crackle polish.

I like this combination: a nude polish underneath a crackle polish... I think crackle polishes on itself are pretty outstanding, so I'd like to keep it a bit calm this way...


I've swatched China Glaze Crackle Glaze Lightning Bolt before (click here) but I didn't like the way it turned out then. So I've decided to swatch it again, and this time on my natural nails...


Lightning Bolt is a bit tricky... The first swatch I've made with it looked too much like Tipp Exx in my opinion... You know, the white stuff to correct written mistakes with:




But this time the manicure turned out a lot better, at least that's what I think about it... :)


I do like this manicure, but white (matte) crackles on your nails still are a bit weird to me...



What do you think about white crackle polish? Tipp Exx or not?

Have a great weekend!

Misa Pay Days Are Happy Days

Hi!

Today I would like to show you one of my newest Misa polishes:

Misa Pay Days Are Happy Days

Pay Days Are Happy Days is a light taupe crème and is one of the six polishes from the 9 to 5 collection.



This polish went on like a dream. The brush is long and small, but that didn't bother. I'm wearing 2 coats and 2 coats of Seche Vite Topcoat.


Since my hands are a bit tanned, because of my recent vacation, I think this is a beautiful color. 
But, I can't say it enough: I'm a sucker for nudes :)


Isn't this a beautiful milkish - café-au-lait-ish color? I really ♥ it! But I must admit: crème finishes are my favorite :)

What do you think about this color? Like it or not?

Have a nice evening!
