Grunge Me Tender!

The latest Catrice and Essence limited collections are filled with lovely spring colours. A few days ago, the local drugstore happened to have updated the limited collection display already, while these collections are supposed to hit the stores in April. You'll hear no complaints from me =]

So let's take a look at Essence TE Floral Grunge where feminine meets grunge. This is Grunge Me Tender:
Grunge Me Tender is described as mint on the Essence website, but I think it's more pastel green. Furthermore, Grunge Me Tender is a creme with subtle white/silver shimmer and has a soft matte finish. This is hinted by the sticker "The Suede" on the bottle.

Only two coats is needed to reach opacity and it dried quite fast.

I wanted to know how it looked with a layer of TC:
Have a nice one!

Glitter on me

This is Essence's newest member in the nail art Special Effect! topper family: Glitter On Me.
Glitter On Me has a clear base filled with tiny silver glitter and aqua, gold, pink and silver bar glitters. 
I started with two coats of KIKO Pastel Blue as base colour and added one layer of Glitter On Me. The end result didn't feel gritty at all, so I just skipped TC.

Have a great one!
