Essence Polishes Spring 2013 Part 2

Yesterday I showed you three of the nine new polishes from Essence's new Spring polish releases.

Today I have .. three more! I have to say, I am loving the formulas of these polishes, they are creamy and frosty, and glittery, and very Essence - i.e. easy to apply and great popping colours!

Here are the three I have to show you today:
Ice Ice Baby, Peach & Cream & Upper Green Side

I swatched Ice Ice Baby at night, so the shot is in reasonably bad light, with flash - I actually like how it captured the sheer jelliness of this shade, it isn't something I would usually go for, but something I quite liked on my own pale Irish hands! This was two coats, and I liked the application.

Peach & Cream needed three coats, and you can see from the shot, that it's quite streaky even still.. perhaps, over a darker base, or a very light nude, it would be better. This was my second favourite so far, of the polishes I've tried from this release, with Miss Universe taking the top spot! Taken in natural morning light, with flash.

Lastly, I have Upper Green Side. Hard to capture it's pistachio-ness unfortunately. This picture is with natural morning light, and no flash. Excuse the bumps - I had lint on two nails!

I am looking forward to trying the last three tonight!

Hi : ) Am one of the ladies posting on boards looking for Irish bbloggers to follow.

Love the pistachio shade, did you ever think of pairing it with a chocolate brown around your half moons, I saw it while killing time in the airport browsing the mac stuff before christmas . looked amaze- like you'd bitten into a chocolate/mint truffle!

Oh Kim I love this idea :) I'm not great at pairing colours/nail art but I still love cute polishes! I'll definitely check it out.
