essence - me & my lover
This is another one of the new essence "sparkle sand effect" polishes and it is AMAZING! Photos do not do these polishes justice. Me & My Lover is a gorgeous pink-red shade jammed packed with texture and sparkle. This polish contains fine pink and gold glitter that shimmers and sparkles constantly. I just can't stop staring at my nails!
I used two coats to get full opacity. I've gotten three days of wear before a chip appeared on my right index finger. (I just touched it up and have carried on wearing it because I'm not ready to take this off yet). Drying time was a little bit slower than for a regular polish, but if you use thin coats it shouldn't be an issue. The texture is wonderful - just a little bit rough, not too much to screw with my texture/touch based sensitivities.
Overall, these "sparkle sand effect" polishes are gorgeous and amazing value for money - if you haven't yet, definitely go check them out! I'm sure I'm going to be using these a lot over the coming festive season!
