Finally! Essence Colour and change swatches
Today I'm finally showing you Essence colour change swatches I bought recently =)
I bought 3, there are 4 in this line, but the orange one didn't seem attractive enough so it stayed on the shelf =)
The first one I swatched was unexpected galaxy because I thought it will have matte finish, but instead it surprised me with a lovely metallic finish.
I applied only one coat and it was completely opaque, so I had to check if it stamps well and it does, but I'll show you the picture later =).
I like this colour, it is a very dark metallic silvery purple which changes to IMO prettier purple when TC is applied.
Lets take a look at the pictures:
I played a little bit with one of my top coats an got these looks:
In this combination I prefer the one with TC
Next on is sweet suprise
This one is also a one coater and it stamps great too =). It immediately remembered me on CG Admire, but in fact they are quite different. This one has chrome finish so you have to be really careful with ridges and application.
I got these looks when I applied TC:
I was really impressed with this colour combination as well.I had to choose I'd pick pink over red.
The last one is a shade called wonderlicious green. I don't know why they decided to name this polish green since I don't see even a tiny bit of green colour in this polish.
This one is one coater as well. Application was great and as the other 2 shades this one dries fast too =)
This is what I got after playing with TC:
( you can clearly see that I ran out of ideas )
On my pinkie I used a really thin coat of TC so the colour change effect isn't that visible, but this only happens with the blue one, with other two I didn't have problems
I must warn you! This picture is really not colour accurate. The colour changed blue should be a bit darker, but I failed to capture it. I really like the darker blue in this combination.
This is how they work with stamping:
( please forgive me for such a bad quality picture)
L without TC, R with TC ( If I used another TC desings probably wouldn't be smudged that much)
My overall opinion:
I was really impressed with them. They are easy to work with, great for stamping, colour contrast is really visible, but you have to make sure that you apply enough top coat. Their price was about 2,2€ which is much less than BarryM Chameleon
Essence congratulations, you put another great stuff on the market for a very reasonable price!
I already have one pretty nail art in mind with 2 of them.
I'll probably use them a lot for stamping, because they stamp pretty well, and when I'll get sick of on colour I'll only add TC and get a completely different combination =).
I also tried what would happen if I stamped TC on colour change polish. I discovered that this doesn't work, because the layer of TC is too thin.
What do you think of them? Are they a must have or they don't catch your attention?
Which one of this shades is your favourite?
