Terrific Top Coats: Part 1 Essence Nude Dots

I love pinning amazing pieces of nail art on my inspiration board, but if I am totally honest I am always too lazy and clumsy to make decent nail art myself. That is why I absolutely adore fun top coats to spice up my nails and make it look like I’ve spend hours on them. In this series, I will be talking you through my favorite top coats each week, starting with an amazing budget version from Essence.

Ik vind het superleuk om mooie voorbeelden van nail art op mijn inspiratie bord te pinnen, maar ik ben eerlijk gezegd veel te lui en onhandig om zelf mooie nail art te maken. Daarom ben ik dop op leuke top coats die mijn nagels net even wat extras geven en eruit laten zien alsof ik uren bezig geweest ben. In deze serie zal ik elke week mijn favoriete top coats bespreken en ik begin met een hele gave budget versie van Essence.

I will start the series of with the Nude Dots top coat in 28 Truth or Dare? It has white and beige speckles varying in size from tiny to quite large. The colors make this a quite grow-up top coat that can be combined with almost any polish. I also really like the size differences in the particles, this makes every nail slightly different.

Ik begin de serie met deze Nude Dots top coat in de kleur 28 Truth or Dare? Deze heeft witte en beige spikkels in verschillende maten van klein naar best groot. De kleuren maken dit echt een volwassen top coat die met bijna elke kleur lak mooi staat. Ik vind de verschillende maten spikkels ook erg leuk, daardoor is elke nagel net even anders.

I combined it with Rimmel’s Rose Libertine 405 for a fun summer look in this post, but I recently wore it over dark blue in another great combination much more suited for winter. I love this versatile top coat, what do you think?

Ik heb hem hier gecombineerd met Rimmel’s Rose Libertine 405 voor een leuke zomerse look, maar heb hem recent ook gedragen over donkerblauw: ook een super combi en helemaal top voor de winter. Ik ben dol op deze veelzijdige top coat, wat vinden jullie?

      Same here, I happen to love their eye pencils and liquid liners, but have recently branched out into lip and nails 🙂 Very nice brand for the price!

      Actually, I never have that problem with any polish. I always use my Essie quick dry top coat which seals the topcoat to the base layers and makes all my polish come off in one go (I know I am not explaining it right, but it is tricky to eplain)…
      means I never have to fight to remove it, as I simply peel it off. xxx

          Think it works with any fast drying formula: they glue the layers together to make them dry quicker. Means they chip a little sooner, but makes glitter polish so much easier to remove.
