I've been lusting over gold glittery polishes for some time now so when I was walking down the aisles, this baby caught my attention. It looks so beautiful and I find this to be an excellent purchase - for $5.50 you receive 2 x 4ml of product. If you haven't already, I urge you to check out the Circus Circus range as everything looks so sparkly and glittery and the colour theme is mainly red, pink, gold, and black.
I have never tried any of Essence's nail products but this baby left a good impression. Now I have to try resist myself from buying more polishes!

I used the black shade as my base coat and only one coat was needed to be opaque so I was very surprised at how pigmented it was. The brush is a bit small therefore making it a bit annoying to apply but that's not a big problem. Formula is thick yet smooth so it is easy to apply and drying time is quite average.
Now the exciting part (sort of)! Applying the glitter top coat is where the magic happens. The problem I find with a lot of glitter polishes is the uneven distribution of glitter and the inconsistency while applying. I did not have this problem as the brush is loaded with square shaped and really fine glitter. I can't compare how it looks with gold flakies since I've never tried flakies before but I believe this looks beautiful!
Here's how it looks on all nails! I think this would look better on those with longer nails than mine since mine just look really short and stubby right now. It lasted six days without chipping with a China Glaze - Strong Adhesion base coat and a Seche Vite top coat, which I find pretty impressive considering I've never tried any other Essence polishes before.
Have you tried any Essence nail products and what were they like? Would love to hear your experience! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend :)
