Yay, my last 2 nail polish packages have arrived! And, yeah, I couldn’t handle myself and bought two more of the new Essence polishes. Shame on me… 😉

Here are the pictures:

Essence Color & Go “Boho Chic” >>> peach with gold shimmer and flakies

Essence Color & Go “Ballerina’s Charm” >>> pastel lilac with subtle silver shimmer

1,55 € each in drugstores

Barry M Chameleon Color Changing polishes in “Chameleon Pink” & “Chameleon Blue”

3,99 GBP each on ebay.co.uk

China Glaze “Pool Party” >>> creme neon pink

China Glaze “Flirty Tankini” >>> shimmer pinky-orange neon

3,99 $ each from ebay.com

OPI “Coney Island Cotton Candy” >>> milky pastel peach >>> 5,99 $

China Glaze “Elephant Walk” >>> greenish-grey shimmer >>> 3,99 $

from ebay.com

Orly “Dayglow” >>> white with blue sheen >>> 5,95 $

Orly “Beach Cruiser” >>> cool toned neon pink

Orly “Glowstick” >>> pure neon yellow

both 6,95 $, all from ebay.com

I tried to make a picture of the blue sheen from the Orly “Dayglow” but I had to darken it a lot so you can see:

There you go! 🙂

By the way, pictures doesn’t do the neon ones justice. They look so much brighter in real life than on photos or in videos. I saw so many swatches of these but was actually pretty much shocked when I hold them in my hands after unpacking. 🙂

So much for this Haul…

I found the new Essence polishes! YAY!!!! 🙂

I told you in another post, that Essence is going to discontinue all their Color & Go polishes. They change the formula, the brush and also the bottle size, and they bring out several new colors. So I discovered the new ones in a local drugstore and bought a bunch of them. The have so many pretty fun colors.

Here’s what I bought:

from left to right:

Date in the Moonlight >>> a dusty blue with blue microglitter

Walk on the Wild Side >>> a mossy green with green microglitter

Chic reloaded >>> a purple-grey-green duochrome

from left to right:

Off to Miami >>> a bright coral-y orange

Grey-t to be here >>> a very light grey with pink microglitter

I love bad Boys >>>  a light blue with blue microglitter

Gorgeous Bling Bling >>> a rusty orange with gold shimmer and flakies

And here’s what they look swatched:

l to r: Date in the Moonlight, Chic reloaded, Walk on the Wild side

l to r: I love Bad Boys, Off to Miami, Grey-t to be here, Gorgeous Bling Bling

Sadly my camera doesn’t pick up the shimmer very good. They look even more gorgeous in person.

I will do a seperate comparison post Essence new vs. Essence old soon…

I know Essie had just released this collection in the US. It has been out for a while over here in germany and I have 4 of the 5 colors. So I decided to do a quick review post on them.

So here’s what they look like in their bottle:

From left to right we have: Penny Talk. Blue Rhapsody, Nothing else Metals and No place like Chrome.

And here’s what they look swatched:

l to r: Penny Talk, Nothing else metals, No place like Chrome, Blue Rhapsody

Overall I really love them all! Can’t say anything bad about them. Unlike most metallic polishes those go on really smooth and non-streaky. Maybe we have the advantage of having the wide flat brush over here. They are really shiny even without a Top Coat, they give your nails this “dipped-in-liquid-chrome” look.  The stying quality is also very impressive. I had Blue Rhapsody on for over 5 days without any noticable tipwear or chipping.

I definately give them an A+! If you like the metallic look, then go ahead and check them out!

Essie “Chubby Cheeks” >>> 7,95 €

Zoya “Tru” >>> 5,99 $

Zoya “Kendal” >>> 5,99 $

China Glaze Crackle “Glam-More” >>> 3,25 $

I purchased all these polishes over the last couple of weeks, and there are still 2 packages on the way to me. I have also already gotten  some other exciting new polishes here at home which are worth doing a seperate post. 🙂

Hope you enjoyed…

I guess I should re-name the blog “The Haul-Pages”… *lol

So here’s another drugstore Haul. All things were purchases over the last couple weeks. Enjoy… 🙂

There we have alllllll the goodies. 🙂 Sorry bout the tacky picture, my camera starts doing weird things with the lighting when I take close-ups lately.

Found the Essence “Snow White” LE. I got those three beauties:

Special Effect Topper “Prince Charming” >>> 1,95 €

Mini polish “Bashful” and “Dopey” >>> 1,55 € each

Essie “Ballett Slippers” >>> 7,95 €

On Sale Essence Color & Go polishes in “Sparkling Water Lilly” and Nude Glam polish in “Iced Strawberry Latte” >>> 0,95 € each (the “Sparkling Water Lilly looks much prettier in person. It is a white pearl color with blue-ish shimmer to it.)

Essence Miami Roller Girl Blush in “Dates on Skates” >>> 2,75 €

Something to say on the blush. The product itself is very beautiful and very good pigmented. But the packaging is clearly the most tackiest and cheapest I have ever seen.

I also bought the L’Oreal Nude Magic BB Cream for very light skin. It was on sale for 8,95 €.

Hope you liked that Haul. I have some more coming up, maybe if I have time to write at the weekend. I’m also waiting for three packages of nail polish I ordered on ebay, so there will be a huge Nail Mail post as well…

As promised, here is my nail polish haul! These are polishes I purchased over the last couple of weeks.

P2 What’s up? Beach Babe “Good Lovin'” >>> 1,95 €

P2 What’s up? Beach Babe “Adventurous” >>> 1,95 €

Essence Reday for Boarding Peel Off Base Coat >>> 1,75 €

Essence Color & Go “Blue Addicted” >>> 1,25 €

The Peel Off Base Coat I just bought to try out. Maybe if it works, it would be a good solution for Glitter polishes, since they are a pain to remove. And as a note, the Essence Color & Go polishes are all on sale for 0,95 € now, since they all going to be discontinued by august. Essence is going to change the bottle shape and size and some of the colors, as well as the price. I obviously got mine before the sale.

Essie “Watermelon”

Essie “Sole Mate”

Essie “Bikini so Teeny”

Essie “All tied Up”

each 7,95 €

Zoya “Lotus”

Zoya “Wednesday”

each 10,40 €

OPI “Into the Night”

OPI “Just spotted the Lizard”

each 5,99 $

OPI “Tease-y does it” >>> 8,- €

The “Tease-y does it” I got from a local Douglas store, which is a beauty departement store chain comparable to Sephora over here. Normally their OPI polishes are 16 €, which I think is ridiculous,  but I wanted that color so bad and so I decided to spend that money anyways. So I was pretty surprised, that at the checkout it was mraked down to 8 €, which is a discount of 50 %! Yay! 🙂

Hope you liked my little Haul. I already ordered some more polishes online, so I will have another Haul up in the next weeks. 🙂
