Today I have swatches for you of 3 of the 5 polishes from the latest Essence Fruity limited edition. I wasn’t planning on buying all of the three glitters but my boyfriend (being the enabler that he is) urged me to buy all three. “If you’ll buy them for me, sure” is what I told him, and to my surprise he did. Thanks darling!
The other two polishes from the collection are a sheer yellow and jelly orange, they didn’t take my fancy so I skipped those. The glitters looked a lot more interesting anyway! All nail polishes in this collection are €1,79 and the two topcoats are €1,99.
From left to right: One Kiwi A Day, Mashed Berries and Very Cherry. The names aren’t written on the bottles which is very annoying but I managed to find the names on the site.
One Kiwi A Day – A very appropriate name for this green glitter. It has emerald green glitters which spread nice and evenly across the nails. All three polishes are somewhat on the sheer side so you definitely need 3-4 coats to get good coverage. This was four coats I believe.
Mashed Berries – This one is a peach with a hint of shimmer to it (if you look closely you can see it on my ring finger). You don’t notice the shimmer in the bottle and since it looks quite subtle on the nails, I quite like it. This one has fuchsia glitter, the same glitter as Very Cherry. I wish they went for a more peachy or red glitter instead but it’s still really cute. This was three coats.
Very Cherry – As you can see this one is super glossy, it’s a pink jelly with fuchsia glitter. No shimmer in this one. I think this one is the best out of the three cause they used a jelly base. All the glitters show up really nicely. Overall I think this collection is really great, I definitely feel ready for summer! And obviously I also highly approve of the name of this polish.
Also in this collection is a scented top coat and a sealing top coat. I haven’t tested the sealing top coat yet but I imagine it is similar, if not the same, to their nail art sealing top coat which I love. The scented top coat is a fun novelty item, though the smell does not remind me of fruit, even though it’s supposed to smell like strawberries. It’s more a sort of bubblegum-candy scent to me, it’s nice but not unique.
Are you picking anything up from this collection? If so, what? Let me know!
