I hate being sick. On Thursday I awoke achy (due to major tidying on Wednesday) and was tired all day. On Friday I got out of bed and felt like I was on the verge of nausea and dizziness, enough so that I got over my phone aversion and cancelled my appointment with my therapist, and over the course of the day developed a seriously sore throat. That continued through Saturday with bonus coughing and Sunday just added a runny nose. I even developed a bit of a fever, which is super rare for me. Add a really bad period (sorry, TMI) and you have a seriously miserable CucumPear.
Why do I whinge about that here? You try and paint something pretty on your nails when you cough constantly. So I dug out an older swatch, I typed up the main review back then, but not everything.
essence colour& go 105 party princessparty princess is a sheer medium pink base with multicoloured glitter, lots of red-green shifting particles and a strong blue sheen. If you want an opaque mani you’ll have to layer it over something.
Like many essence glitters, party princess is quite gloopy to keep the glitter suspended. This makes for fairly thick coats, but overall it applied well and the particles were evenly dispersed. The new colour&go brush is a bit chunky, but definitely useable.
This is party princess in two coats (maybe without top coat?):
And here it is over a pink base, but I can’t for the life of me recall which pink it is, I wore a few similar shades around that time:
I like picking up sheer glitters for layering, I’m guessing party princess would look rad over dark blue or black.
