If you follow me on twitter, you know that I just bought the Essence Fairytale collection yesterday when I went to cash in on my points. First, I have to say I LOVE Essence. I find that for a cheaper brand, the quality of the product is really great. So I was so excited when I saw their Fairytale collection!
But first- I showed you guys my stash when I organized it by color..Well I couldn't take all the different sized bottles so I went back to organizing by brand. Except, I did keep a holographic polish and international polish drawer. I wanted to show you guys one of my drawers.
This makes me feel 100% better. I love how uniform the bottles look. :)
Aren't the bottles adorable?
Pixie Dust, Tinka's Dress, Welcome to Wonderland, Fairy Berry, Humpty Dumpty, and Once Upon A Star.
This is 3 coats of Pixie Dust.
Pixie Dust is a soft pink foil polish that is almost silver.
It's very soft and pretty. It's a color I would associate with fairy dust, I suppose. :)
It's very reflective and almost appears to be silver.
This is 3 coats of Tinka's Dress.
Tinka's Dress is a peachy pink foil polish.
I'm not sure who "Tinka" is. The only thing I can think of is Tinkerbell. But she had a green dress..
This polish seems to have a hint of orange as well.
This is 4 coats of Welcome To Wonderland.
Welcome to Wonderland is a light purple foil that is almost silver.
This polish seems to be the slightly purple version of Pixie Dust.
It's very soft and pretty. :)
This is 2 coats of Fairy Berry.
Fairy Berry is a medium purple foil polish.
Ah... My love affair with purple polish continues.
I don't think I own a purple foil, so this is a treat.
This is 2 coats of Humpty Dumpty.
Humpty Dumpty is a strange color. It's kind of in between grey/silver and purple. Another foil.
I like the ambiguity of this color. I believe there is an eyeshadow to match this one.
It almost looks like it has a hint of brown as well.
This is 2 coats of Once Upon A Time.
Once Upon A Time is the only polish in the collection that isn't a foil. It is a raspberry red glitter polish.
I actually really like this red polish. I think because the color really does remind me of a raspberry. Or a perfect strawberry.
I have the Once Upon A Time lip gloss to match this polish. I know this is a nail polish blog, but I might post a swatch of it later. :)
I hope you guys enjoyed this collection. I certainly love the bottles and the colors I just wish there was more of a variety of finishes. I love the foil finish but I think it's strange there is only one non-foil. The bottles weren't hard to work with at all. Some of the colors were more opaque than others. I think the darker colors tended to be more opaque.
