New Essence Shades! Walk On The Wild Side and Grey-t To Be Here

Today I have two of of the new Essence colours to show you: Walk on the Wild Side and Grey-t to be Here. 

First up, I have Walk On The Wild Side, a smokey evergreen shade with green shimmer. This is a really nice one- good application, and the shimmer is noticeable in both shade and sunlight. It's pretty unique; I don't have anything like it in my stash. 




The second shade I have to share with you is Grey-T To Be Here, a gorgeous light grey packed with red shimmer. It's a bit hard to see in the photographs, but the red shimmer is surprisingly apparent on the nail. Sometimes when you see lovely shimmer in the bottle it may not translate on the nail, but this one does and it's gorgeous. This one is also unique in my collection, and I'm very glad I picked it up!




Overall, I can't praise these two colours enough. For the price point, they're excellent. I'm also loving the new bottle shape! So much better than the old Essence bottles. These ones are also a bit bigger, and just generally have a nicer, smoother shape. The caps are really great, too- they have a little "notch" where you tighten them and you know they're fully closed (without having to tighten them so much that you can't get them open next time around!).

Have you tried any of the new Essence lacquers? If not, I highly recommend checking them out! In Canada they're available at Shopper's, and cost a mere $1.89.
