It has been at least a year since I last made a true swatch and review blogpost about a complete set of nailpolishes. When I swatched these beauties yesterday I really felt kinda nostalgic, because I have been blogging for almost 7 years now and Essence polishes were the first to enter my nailpolish collection and started my love for blogging. I think I will be doing blogposts like these more often when I get the time :)
But for now, stop with the rambling and review these beauties!
So first of all there is this gorgeous hot pink barbie shade called 01 Kisses From Havana. It is a true barbie pink which I LOVE and it’s completely opaque in just 2 thin layers. The substance is really creamy and gives a pretty glossy finish. No streaks at all so that’s a good thing!
The second one is also a super pretty creamy polish with an opaque and even finish within just two thin layers. 02 ¡hola guapa! is a medium purple with a pinky undertone to it. Super creamy and it gives a pretty glossy finish on it’s own without topcoat.
Now this is my personal favourite polish of the bunch. A pale pink with a cooler undertone. It did look different on camera in different types of light but it depends on what kind of room you are in how it will show up :) Nothing wrong with that, just simple logic. 03 Do You Hear La Música? is another creamy polish with a gorgeous glossy finish and it completely opaque and streakless within just 2 coats.
The last polish is actually the one I am wearing right now. I liked it so much I was like: “well let’s just do all of my nails with this one just for fun” :D 04 Bienvenida A Palm Beach is a super gorgeous and fun teal/sea blue greenish colour. I always find it hard to discribe colours like this because to me it looks super blue with just a drop of green, and to others it may seem more green… it’s a bright teal that reminds me of mermaids… let’s just keep it to that ;) This one is also fully opaque with 2 thin coats and gives the same gorgeous glossy finish.
I actually don’t have much negative words to say about these trend edition collection polishes. The only thing I noticed is that the caps were not working that handy because of the shape, but that’s just something to get used to. I bought these polishes for €1,99 each, which makes them super budgetproof!
