Today was my first day back to school in a week and a half and I have to say I was dreading it. After spending a week and a half of waking up without an alarm, I was not looking forward to hearing that obnoxious beeping sound at 4:50am. Even writing that my alarm goes off at 4:50 in the morning makes me a little sad inside.
Surprisingly, I had a very productive day! I don’t know what got into me. Maybe it was the shock of only having about 3 hours of sleep that made me have a ton of energy, but I was able to cross off half of the things on my to-do list today. Since I am almost rejuvenated from my time off school and have a new found drive to get through the semester, I figured I would show you a polish that also has a little bit of energy!
Essence “Oh My Glitter” is a bright, medium toned blue purple with pink shimmer. The color is more purple in real life than the pictures suggest, and also a little bit more vibrant. It reminds me of Illamasqua “Jo’mina” except a little less loud and in your face. But what makes this special to any other purple in my collection is the pink shimmer running throughout it. I really like these Essence creme polishes that have the subtle shimmers if you can’t tell!
The formula on this polish was a little bit tricky. It was very runny when I was applying it and it was pretty sheer as well. It took some effort on my part to not flood my cuticles. It took 3 thin coats to achieve full opacity, but you could probably get away with 2 really thick. I wasn’t about to do thick coats with this polish because it was so runny. But the color is just so pretty and I don’t mind that the formula takes some finagling!
What do you guys think? What are your favorite purples? What are your favorite Essence polishes?
