A nail blog by an impatient polisher

Essence Miss Universe


*Nothing to disclose

Hello! For once I have a pretty new nail polish to show you. A couple of days ago at the Priceline near my work I saw that a salesperson was restocking the Essence stand with new nail polish. Obviously I was drawn to it like a moth to a flame and stood over the poor salesperson as I was picking up every new polish. In the end I picked up five new Essence polishes, with Miss Universe being one of them.

Miss Universe is a beautiful milky deep blue with a blue shimmer. I think there may also be some green shimmer in there too because it seems extra shimmery, especially when once on the nail outside.

See how awesome it is outside!? I only used two coats to get this result. To be honest, I don’t even think I put it on all that evenly but you can’t tell at all because the formula is that great. It self-leveled really nicely and it was very easy to apply, the brush is fantastic as it’s nice and wide.


  • Where to buy: Priceline
  • Cost: AU$2.75
  • Volume: 8ml
  • Coats to opacity: Two

So, what do you think? I reckon with the price point and the formula you can’t go wrong. Thanks for reading!
