NOTD: Essence - You Belong To Me

I received this nail polish along w/several other Essence shades a while ago, but I've only recently tried this particular shade. As you can see in the photo, it's a pretty mint green.

I said before about the others that these polishes run a little sheer & this polish is no exception, also the brush is a little tricky to work with.

However, you can get decent, not great, coverage in 2-3 coats. If you have the patience for multiple coats & a tricky brush, you might like these little, inexpensive polishes. They have quick drying time (not as quick as Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri) & they have some pretty shades too.

You can get these for 99¢ at Ulta.com
I received this & other products from a PR rep of the company. I did not pay for these products. This in no way effects my opinion of the products.

Essence Spring Collection

Essence has been a favorite beauty brand in Europe & now they've come to the U.S. & their products are available at ULTA.

I was first introduced to Essence through a German beauty blogger, so I was really excited when I heard about their U.S. launch!

These products were sent to me by a PR rep of the company, I did not pay for them.

Essence Comes To The USA!

A European favorite, the quality budget beauty brand known as Essence has come to the U.S. I have known about their products for awhile from seeing them used on the fabulous blog Mylanqolia's Makeup Massacre. From her swatches & application I can tell that the products have nice pigmentation.

I have been wanting to try their products for awhile, but couldn't because they weren't available here. Now you can get them at ULTA! Is anyone else excited about this? Let me know in the comments! :)
