Evening! Sorry from my “break” from posting recently, but I’m back with a polish I really enjoyed wearing: essence Hello Rosy (I can’t help but not love a good textured polish!).

This is currently part of essence’s standard line-up of polishes, even though it is a “sparkle sand effect”. What you see is two coats, at one coat I was thinking it might be a three-coater but the second coat is perfectly thick, I think. The colour is really pretty but hard to capture on camera. It’s more of a dusty pink and less red than what you see in the photos. There is also fine pink glitter throughout, which I think softens it nicely.

In the past I’ll admit I’ve had a few problems with the drying time of some of essence’s textured polishes, but not this one. I hope it means essence has upped its game for future textured polishes. I used the foil method for removal, just a couple of minutes, and that worked fine.

DETAILS

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

My only critique is the colour in some lighting looks a bit “mumsy”, but since Pantone announced its colour of the year as Marsala (“A subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth“) I think it could be on trend for 2015. Thanks for reading!
