the essence of things...

One of the budget beauty brands out there at the moment is putting out some fantastic formulations for less than the price of a loaf of bread. And since it doesn't put on weight or irritate sensitive bowels and costs a mere €1.29 per bottle, its a guilt free treat at the end of a long week to put a smile on your face for the weekend :)
These two colours are fab together. I got loads of compliments on it on the three days that I wore it.

I like that the bottles are small. Enough of the colour to get you though a trend without leaving you feeling guilty about throwing out half a bottle of polish.

The first coat of 77 In Style goes on a little patchy. I think that this is because I like to make my coats thin so that they dry quickly.

Two coats gives a really even colour that is pretty on its own. This colour would also look great under a matt top coat.

I decided to use a glitter top coat in 04 Space Queen  to add a bit of sparkle. I liked the end effect.  Space Queen is a slightly pink-hued clear varnish with loads of small glitter particles. A thin coat gives lots of sparkle. I like it. It does take a bit of time to dry though, even with a thin coat.













The polish didn't chip or flake, was relatively easy to remove and didn't stain my nails. All these things and the price makes me a happy bunny.
