New Essence polish - Gorgeous Bling Bling


Hi girls! Lately I have been stalking all my local Kruidvat drugstores in hopes of new polish by Essence. As you may have read earlier they discontinued the entire bottle design and released a complete new range (with some of the old colors in new bottles, and also new shades).

I really like the new bottle design, more than I thought I would based on press releases. The best part is the cap has a little click system making sure it is always tight, but not too tight, and makes sure the cap is on straight with the bottle design. The thing I don't like is the slightly longer bottle neck. I have to dip in farther for polish now.

Let's take a look at this shade, shall we? It's called Gorgeous Bling Bling, and there is some bling going on in there indeed! It's a burned orange base, that needs 3 coats to be nicely opaque and even. The consistency was slightly watery for me. It is packed with golden flakies, no problem with covering them with the base color!

Removal was a little hard, those golden flakies tend to get stuck on your nail bed, so you might wanna use the foil method for this one!

What do you think? Curious for more shades?

  1. My store is gonna replace the old displays tomorrow afaik, needless to say I can't wait! And I'm pretty sure this one's coming home with me as well, it looks good! Thanks for swatching, one less polish to doubt about =)

  2. You are welcome, love! Other recommendations are Grey-t To Be Here, Boho Chic (same golden flakes as this one but a more pink/nude basecolor) and Walk On The Wild Side. I hated how I Love Bad Boys looked on me, it looked so so dirty. So keep in mind that one dries a little darker than bottle color and might not look good on you either.

  8. I love this color! The gold flakies go so well with the orange base! (but then again, I'm biased towards gold flakes in general lol!) ;)

  10. I find it really strange that they've made the bottle neck longer, but the brush shorter!! I do love the new ones though. This colour is lovely x

  15. It is strange indeed and can become problematic if you ever empty a bottle. Like that'll ever happen ;).
