Essence Soul sista TE Mojito green


First a question for my readers: today I was frankening again after a long time and I really got into it :) Would you be interested in a month full of frankenpolish posts, a Frankenpolish May? :) Let me know


OK this thing with me finding TE basically untouched is getting ridiculous :) I'm not complaining though :)
We waited for this collection so long, I was already convinced that the stores are gonna skip it. Then I randomly went to buy chocolate (Milka Oreo y u no bad!) and there it was, a full stand :) I only got this beauty. Mojito green is not really mojito green, it's a gorgeous turquoise with subtle gold shimmer. It's quite thick, so it does take some skill to apply it semi decent :) Two coats were needed for full opacity.

Love it, this is gonna be such a great summer shade <3

Nicka K Tropical


Another mani from the vault. Pastels aren't really my thing but sometimes I get an itch, only a pastel can scratch :)

This was such a bitch to take photos; it's a peach pink pastel creme, my camera made it orange, pink, salmon.... You name it :) The application was a bit tricky so I needed three coats. I am overall so unimpressed by this I have nothing more to say :)

Do you like pastels?

W7 Metallic Neptune


This is a scheduled post, I am currently enjoying myself in Serbia :)

When I first saw pictures of W7 Metallic polishes, I fell in love. Then came the problem - most UK web stores weren't sending their products to Slovenia. But I finally found one, that wasn't so picky and ordered them all :)

W7 aren't big 3 free but since most polish I own is, I make exceptions from time to tome. Metallic Neptune is has a darkened blue base with a blue to purple shift, sometimes it even flashes green and pink. Big bottle, nice brush, great polish consistency, cheap and beautiful - just how I love them :)

Get ready for the picture spam

Ebay magnetic nail polish 023


My love for magnetic nail polish is still going strong :) I got this pretty purple from Ebay for under 3 dollars (free shipping). The seller butterflybeauty168 has more than 20 different colors to choose from and I already ordered one more. It also comes with a good magnet. And no, I am not affiliated with the seller, just a happy customer :)

Number 23 has a warm purple shimmery base with some blue particles. It's pretty on it's own too and it's the same color as the light stripes once you put the magnet over wet polish.The magnetic effect is quite strong, also opaque in one coat. 

I'm not sure about the big 3 free because there's no ingredients listed on the bottle or Ebay but it doesn't smell extra bad (I'm looking at you Kleancolor), it smells like "normal" polish. All in all, I'm a happy bunny :)

Essence Rebels TE Punk royal rock top coat


Lately I have been really lucky with finding limited editions. Few days ago I went to buy shower gel (totally random :) and I found a full Rebels stand. Nothing looked interesting except for the top coat. It looks innocent in the bottle but when you put it on the nails - bam chunky black glitter everywhere :D Glitter is suspended in a sheer black base; similar to the Rock top coat from the Remix collection. This is one coat over bright red creme (also Essence, Applause, applause from the Circus circus TE). You can see the bottle on the swatches, so you can imagine how much darker the color is once you put the topcoat on. The glitter is very dense so you don't have to fish in the bottle to get some on your nails. I did however had some problems with placing it even on the nails. Really love the jelly effect that the polish gives you, but I kinda wished Essence would made a clear version with black glitter.

Do you want something from this TE?

NYC Lights Camera Glitter


This is one of the Prague buys, also known as Starry silver glitter (USA market or it was discontinued and brought back with a different name, the shade number is the same). Either way, it's pretty. Small silver and holo glitter with big blue and pink hexagonal part, all in a clear base. I love how it looks in the bottle, but the polish itself is made for layering since it's too sheer to wear it on its own. 

It's cheap, great brush, dries quickly, doesn't dry gritty......can't say a bad thing about it. All in all, a great nail polish, too bad NYC isn't available here :(

One coat of silver base (Essence Romeo - old version) and 2 coats of Lights Camera Glitter

Essence Fruity TE Mashed berries


Mashed berries or at least I think so. Seriously Essence, what is the point of naming your products and then not putting the name on them? That aside, it's a beautiful polish, milky pink base with purple glitter. It looks like an ice cream or a smoothie <3 Mashed berries needed 3 coats, it's quite sheer but that's what makes the glitter nicely visible. I ended up liking this way more that I thought I would, pastels usually aren't my thing.

3 coats plus topcoat, pics were taken outside

Did you get anything from this collection?
