Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

This is two coats of Essence What Do U Think? I put this on the other night when I knew I wanted a quick-drying no fuss polish change.

It did dry pretty quickly, which is a definitely bonus. And great coverage in two coats.

I have quite a few Essence polishes that I've acquired from Ulta (so glad they have this brand now), but I think this is my first post on one! I used one as a base under an Illamasqua, but that's it.

In any case, I do love them. They are cheap - super cheap, perform well, and have cute colors!

This polish is supposed to be a dupe for Chanel Orange Fizz, if I'm not mistaken. See the pretty gold shimmer in the bottle? Doesn't really show on the nail.

The funny thing about this was that it looked like a lovely pink peach coral after I applied it. As I put Poshe top coat over, it instantly turned much more orange looking! I couldn't quite believe my eyes. I checked my bottle of Poshe - picked it up and stared at it, expecting it to look yellow or something. Nope. Crystal clear.

How bizarre! It's still a gorgeous color - kind of a softer orange, along the lines of peach, but I'm not going to lie, I liked it even better before the change! It does dry darker than what you see in the bottle, too, if you are wondering.

I think it's lovely whatever the TC or BC or anything!

This is what Essie's Tart Deco did to me - it went on one color and dried another. It's kind of upsetting!

jaljen - thank you! I only mentioned it because it was so strange to me and I suppose partially as a warning. ;) I do like it, too, though. Maybe the same thing would have happened with any top coat.

nicnacksnails - now that you mention it, I think Essie's Van D' Go did this to me, too! Must be a thing with this particular shade of coral/peach.

I swatched this same color and thought it was coral, too! I even waited for daylight the next day to capture what my eyes were seeing; NOPE! ITS ORANGE.

cute post!!!!
I'm sure you're very lucky

follow u now =D

I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
