NOTW: Essence What a grey-t night!

Essence 04 What a grey-t night nail polish (2)

Starting this week with another unique shade of grey nail polish by Essence: What a grey-t night! This light grey has an interesting mother of pearl effect that shimmers and adds another dimension to this polish.

There is a fine golden lustre in the polish that makes it look a little more taupe than grey and gives your nails a great shimmer without being too glittery. Unfortunately, this Essence polish doesn’t last very well on my nails, although a decent top coat helps prolong the wear. Still, a great way to test new colors or find these great unique shades for a bargain price.

Deze week beginnen we met nog een unieke grijze nagellak van Essence: What a grey-t night! Deze licht grijze lak heeft een glimmend parelmoer effect dat echt een andere dimensie aan het lakje geeft.

De fijne gouden glans in de nagellak zorgt ervoor dat de kleur wat meer taupe dan grijs overkomt en geeft een mooie subtiele glans. Helaas blijft deze Essence lak niet lang zitten op mijn nagels, maar een goede top coat helpt wel om de lak langer mooi te houden. Toch een leuke manier om nieuwe kleurtjes te testen of unieke kleuren te vinden voor een bodemprijsje.
