Essence TE I Love Berlin

There is no better way to start the new year than with a Trend Edition of Essence. This time, the theme is called: 'I Love Berlin'. The collection consists of 5 nail polishes, 2 matt tip painters and 2 studio fashion nail stickers (and other eye and lip make-up).

Out of the total 5 colours, I only picked number 03 Green Grass, which is a beautiful teal. The application was smooth, but Green Grass is thicker than the Essence polishes I've came across. On the other hand, it made it possible to be opaque with just one coat. However, it does not dry as glossy as described on the Essence website, but that can be fixed with a topcoat.

I also got myself the matt tip painter in black: 01 Berlin Story (4ml). Like you already know, I am not good at nail art. So I came up with the most simple nail art like shown above. In the end, it was not simple at all!!! It was a battle against time. The polish was already dry before I could complete the star on my ring finger. I find it hard to use Berlin Story as a nail art painter, but I would definitely use it for a matt french mani.

What do you think of the 'I Love Berlin' collection?

Have a great one!!!
