Essence - 11 - Nude, Dos, Tres!

November I had a little splurge at my local Essence Cosmetics stand, as promised I am back with some up close swatches of the nail polishes I bought. 

Today's colour is from 'The Nudes' collection is called 'Nude, Dos, Tres!'. This chocolate brown polish is a creme finish which is utterly gorgeous. The application is excellent. I applied two coats of colour over a base coat and topped with topcoat. Honestly the shine was good enough to skip topcoat and the colour application would have been perfect with just the one coat. So basically if you're short of time this colour would be your new best friend. 
As with all darker shades I worry about the colour staining my nails and cuticles when removing it; this polish doesn't. As always I soak a cotton pad in non-acetone remover and hold it on my nail for a moment, then sweep it across the nail thus removing the polish. To keep my nails and cuticles in tip-top condition I then pop a little cuticle oil on.

To give this polish a little something extra I have applied some Essence Nail Stickers (15 Met Addict) on for an accent finger. These bronze coloured nail stickers look great with the chocolate brown polish. They are easy to apply using tweezers and last really well with a layer of topcoat on.

What is your current nail polish shade?


  1. Interesting shade, I kinda like it.

    1. It's certainly one of those love or hate colours.

  2. Very chic manicure! I love essence polishes :)
    right now I'm wearing an indie holo polish from Femme fatale, it is mesmerizing! (if I say so myself, lol)

    1. Me too, Essence Polishes are so affordable you can really play with unusual colours.
