Essie Power Clutch & Essence Julia

I wanna start off with thanking all of you who have joined me on my polish journey.  When I logged in this morning, I saw that I am up to 299 followers, thanks everyone!

It's also post election day.  I am not gonna get political or anything, but whether your candidate won or lost, glitter is bound to make you smile!

I was able to snag Essence Julia from a blog sale.  It's part of a "twin" set.  But I don't have her twin Romeo, which is a light grey.  I recently got a lovely grey in my Birchbox, Essie Power Clutch.  A full size I might add!  Any who, I immediately thought of my Julia when I opened the box.

I am going to give my opinion of both of these polishes as this is the first time I have used either :)

Essie Power Clutch:  This one is a lovely grey, it's pretty opaque in one coat, but I suggest 2.  It went on really smooth.  I really love the formula of this one

Essence Julia:  She is an awesome holo glitter in a clear base.  There are mico glitters as well as square glitters.  I have to say, I LOVE this glitter polish.  It sparkles no  matter where you  are.  It's constantly showing off it's rainbow glittery awesomeness.  Whether it's a sunny day, gloomy day or you are stuck in doors, this one sparkles everywhere!  One coat is good coverage, at least for me, but you can def do more and get lots more bling :)

Here are the 2 layered together:

Base Coat:  Rejuvacote
Base Color:  Essie Power Clutch
Glitter:  Essence Julia
Top Coat:  Seche Vite

This pic was taken outside in the shade.  You can see how much it sparkles in the bottle and on my nails.  If you love glitter polish as much as I do and you come across some one wanting to get rid of this one, GRAB IT!


  1. This is simply gorgeous! I have both of these and need to do this mani! :)
