Essence - Grey-t To Be Here



Its no secret that I LOVE Essence polishes.  I heart the eff out of them!  Their shimmers are always unique.  I've been basically stalking my local Fred Meyers for over a month now, waiting for them to get the new Colour and Go collection in.  Well today I visited 2.  One had a new Special Effects polish called Mrs and Mr Glitter which I picked up.  The other one must have JUST put out the Colour and Go collection cause it was totally full, and no bottles were missing.  Sweet!  I picked up 4 C&G colors and a "Glowing in the Dark" topper (which by the way, does not glow in the dark...but it glows under blacklight, lame!).  I also noticed 2 other Special Effects topcoats plus a new glitter crackle.  So check it out!


The first one I chose to wear is Grey-t To Be Here.  I HAD to put this one on right away.  It is stunning in the bottle.  Its got bright fuchsia shimmer that turns from red to gold.  Contrary to what these pictures portray, the shimmer DOES translate to the nail and its much more apparent in the sun.



Sorry about the tiny bubble....the woes of painting your nails with air conditioning!

You might not be able to tell, but the new C&G polishes not only come in a new bottle, but the bottle is also larger.  The old bottles were 0.16fl.oz / 5ml and the new ones are 0.27fl.oz / 8ml.  They also feature a new brush as well.  They have a brush similar to some of the Sally Hansen polishes, the curved brush.  I have to say I LOVE curved brushes.  I know some people hate them, but I happen to love them.  AND, the one nice thing about these curved brushes, is that the base for the brush is narrower than the bottle so you don't scrape polish off when redipping it into the bottle like you do with the Sally Hansen's (I'm looking at you stupid Insta-Dry's!!).

I can't wait to buy more! The other colors I got were: Walk on the Wild Side which is a nice hunter green with green shimmer.  Date in the Moonlight which is a dark smokey navy with indigo shimmer.  And Gorgeous Bling Bling (lol at that name!!) which is a rust with large gold and copper flakes, its really stunning.

Have you guys seen these around yet?

    Awesome! I just picked this up, despite reservations that the lovely red shimmer wouldn't translate on the nail- so glad to hear that it does! Can't wait to try it!
