Essence Bloom Me Up Nail Polish Collection - Review & Giveaway!

Wednesday, 8 April 2015

Essence are a European brand that we UK nail girls can now get on home soil (can I get a hallelujah!). However there are still a huge amount of Essence products we do not get a sniff at, namely the capsule collections which of course are the most appealing. Their Cinderella collection did not hit UK shores and no matter where I looked I couldn't find a company online willing to send it to the UK (thanks Royal Mail).

Luckily by chance I came across the Bloom Me Up collection while I was browsing around and picked up 2 complete nail collections, 1 for me and 1 for you to try and win. This was a spring release last year but it is still beautiful and goes a way toward making up for the fact I couldn't get the Cinderella collection.

Back to the collection, it contains 4 polishes; 2 cremes / 2 shimmers and some nail lace tip stickers.

Blow My Mint is a gorgeous bright pastel mint green creme with a hint of sage. I used 3 coats and topcoat for the swatches below.

Lovely Lavender is just as the name suggest, a soft lavender with a silver shimmer. I used 3 coats and topcoat for the swatches.

Blooming Tender is a gentle orange polish with a silver shimmer. I used 3 coats with topcoat.

Chaising Lacy is a watermelony-strawberry pink (does that make sense?). I used 2 coats with topcoat for the pictures.

The nail lace tips look beautiful, there are 28 pieces in 7 different sizes. You can of course use them as a tip if you have round or squoval nails, or you could use them to create a lacy half moon mani. I am sure there are loads of ways these could be used, I just can't think of any more right now.

So how do you win these 4 polishes and nail stickers ... read the rules and then enter through the rafflecopter widget.

On a last note - why do Essence insist on changing their bottle shape all the time? I love the uniformity of the same shape bottle per brand. So many brands are recognisable from their bottle shape (OPI, Butter London etc), not Essence, it likes to throw itself around and has a bit of action in all the bottle shapes.

  3. Another one for the pink here! I also like the fact that the shimmers are quite subtle. It is so disappointing that the special editions are not available in the UK as I like most of them and the polishes are so cheap that you can drop a couple of polishes into your trolley without any guilt!

    I normally access your blog through an internet bookmark (I don't really follow many others), but have just signed up to Bloglovin using my facebook account and followed you. Wasn't sure what to put in the rafflecopter box so have just left my facebook name (Becca Catlett).
