Cookies and Cream


Nail Polishes Used: Essence - Cookies & Cream | Essence - Black Galactic
A while ago Essence relaunched their nail polishes, replacing the 5ml Color and Go nail polishes with these new 8ml bottles. They also got rid of some of the colours (some of which I wish I had bought back ups of). I wish they hadn't replaced the small bottles with these new bottles. First reason is because the bottle is not quite neat looking and it has just a slightly odd shape. Whilst it does look a bit more fun, storage wise it's going to take up just that bit more of space. The other problem that I've got with these is the formulation. They didn't say that the formula of the nail polishes has changed, but I think it definitely has. The drying time is much longer, and they also chip much more faster than the previous bottle versions.
Having said that though, a good top coat will make these last just a few days longer, but on their own they will definitely chip within a day or two. Pigmentation for most of these new nail polishes is also quite nice, they're definitely a bit more opaque so at least there is a bit of an upside to them.

Ah I love the nude colour! And love how you've made it stripey, it's a great idea :)
