Essence - Here's My Number

Hello my friends.  Is anyone else upset that Essence has discontinued their Better Than Gel topcoat?!? Why Essence?  Why?  It has such a following!  But where they discontinue, they bring new items, so yay for that!  Honestly though, not a whole lot going on in the new Essence display (the displays at Fred Meyer's NOT to be confused with the Ulta display's, they are NOT the same).


My local Fred Meyer had *some* of the new items about a month ago, and since then, they haven gotten everything in.  Not a whole lot going on there, but that's ok.  This is one of the new polishes I picked up.

This is Here's My Number and it's a great glitter polish.  It's a mix of silver polish with lots of little black glitters and a sprinkle of multi colored glitter in it.  I'm pretty sure this is two coats, but it could possibly be three.




The multi color glitter adds a little extra ooomph to a charcol-y glitter like this.  Fun stuff yo!  Fun stuff!

p.s. damn you Essence for getting rid of a great topcoat!  Damn you I say!

p.p.s I will let you guys know of a great, cheap (albeit maybe hard to get your hands on) topcoat soon!

  3. So pretty! And now I've got "here's my number so call me maybe" stuck in my head...
    I must say I'm glad I didn't try their top coat or else I would be upset now too...

  6. I know! The black glitter came as a surprise. I hadn't realized there was black in there!

  7. Ahh....now you got that damn Carly Rae in my head!!


    I guess it's a good thing you never tried the Essence BTGN topcoat, cause people are going to lose it soon. LOL! It was such a great topcoat for $2.49 or whatever the price was. Stupid Essence! Taking away a cult favorite!

  8. Ahh, well that's too bad. Only the big Essence displays had the topcoat. The smaller ones didn't.

  11. We're still waiting for the new Essence products here in Italy (release expected around mid September :-/). And still it's not clear whether they will discontinue both BTGN top coats (here we have a "high shine" and a "fast dry"), as in some stores they put on clearance sale just one of them.
    I like this glittery polish, but it seems that it would be better to apply it on a peel off base (oh wait, Essence discontinued that one, too).

  12. I think I actually wore the peel off base coat for this, though I actually prefer just the regular Elmer's glue. Works better.


    It's too bad about the BTGN topcoat, but I'm sure I'll live. I'm going to have to try their new quick dry topcoat though. Always looking for a great topcoat!

  13. Already tried running to the 4 or 5 nearby FM's! I didn't realize they were discontinued till it was too late. Oh well, I love the TC I'm using now!

  14. I tried a DIY version, too, but formula wasn't great :-/
    I'm not a big top coat user (as I change polish quite often I don't care about increasing wear that much), but sometimes Essence choices about products they discontinue let me puzzled, as happened with Essence Soft Touch top coat (the best satin tc I ever tried).

  15. P.S. stopped by fm today to get this polish and they have a 'gel look' topcoat. Not the same?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Noooooo totally not the same! Eww, yuck, bleh! lol! What I am saying is....don't buy that topcoat! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Luckily I am happy with the high gloss version of the topcoat, too (it is kinda the same but some people find it not as fast drying).


    I like this color on you but I wasn't amazed by the nail related releases in the new display.. it's all a bit meh to me somehow!

    ReplyDelete
  18. So the high gloss version, is it also the BTGN one? Cause I know you guys on he other side of the pond had two versions of that. We only had one BTGN. I just tried the Ultra Gloss Nail Shine which is pretty new, and it seems ok. Pretty quick drying, but I think it may drag and melt polish. I've only tried it once (just today) over OPI's MBSW, so I couldn't really tell if it was dragging or not.

  19. You only had the fast dry? Yeah we had 2 versions and only the high gloss is left. It just sucks when a good and cheap product gets discontinued :(.
