Essence : Groovy (40)

This is from my haul a few weeks back.  I did my mani last night (but took the pictures just this morning, bad!). The above photo is  two coats with top coat. I love love love the color on this one. Consistency is ok and I didn’t really have any major problem with the application. Drying, on the other hand, took ages!

One more thing, the end result would always have bubbles in them! My nail polishes are properly stored, I did my mani in normal temperature, I waited patiently for my nails to dry before putting additional coats. Still, I’d get bubbles.

Bubbly 🙁

Because I was convinced that the culprit was the top coat, I did my mani again. This time with no base and top coat.The result was so much better but bubbles still appeared.

As you have may noticed, I don’t have a lot of nail polish posts of late. It’s because of this. I can’t get it right. I thought maybe the polish that I was using needed to be saved (hello, polish thinner). But now it seems all of my nail polish are getting the same result.  Boo!!

I bought essence nail polish remover yesterday. It’s nothing spectacular but I love the scent… its coconutty! YAY!!

I had an accident with my thumb nail. I had to cut it short so now it looks like a giant stub. BOO!!

    Hi Sasha!!

    I just like the scent that’s why I took it. Will definitely try the pink and purple ones, just to compare. And I agree, they’re cheap!

    Hey, just a comment about the Essence remover. You picked the worst of the bunch. I never buy this one although I like the scent. Try the purple or pink one. Those are my all time favorites. And they’re cheap too. =D
