Happy Wednesday! Its been practically a week since I finished my finals, and I have to ask where has the time gone?? It seems like winter break is going by way to fast because next week is Christmas, the week after is New Years and the day after New Years I leave for vacation in Mexico. I’m already bummed that this vacation is almost over!
But aside from me complaining, I have another new polish for a winter collection. I don’t feature Essie on here too often, but I couldn’t stop myself when it came to the Essie Encrusted Treasures collection. I picked up two from the collection, this one and another that I’m actually wearing right now!
Essie “On A Silver Platter” is a silver and gold microglitter, with a gold shimmer and chunky indigo holographic glitter. There is a lot going on in this polish! In the bottle, it almost looks like a polish straight from the Deborah Lippmann Mermaids Collection. On the nail it fell really flat for me.
It gives the appearance of being really bumpy and gritty. The indigo glitters clump together and don’t lay flat on the nail and the gold shimmer takes over the glitter and makes it look really messy. This also is two coats of top coat and it still was bumpy on the nail. The formula was thick and a little hard to apply. But the dry time was really nice. I’m not as big of a fan as I hoped it out be, but I know a lot of other people like this polish. So don’t let my negative review sway you if you’re thinking of picking this up.
What do you guys think? Did you get any polishes from the Encrusted Treasures?
