Essence - Oh my Glitter! (New BAD Assortment)

Essence 24/7 Base
Essence - Oh my Glitter! (2 Coats)

I am so disappointed in Essence's new nail polish!
The polish needs 2-3 Coats to be opaque, the drying time is longer than it was and the glitter in this polish looks like tiny sand grains, which you can see from far away. I didn't use top coat to show you this horrible product quality. Also, this is the first brush I really can't work with. The problem isn't that it's too big, but it's very small and doesn't take enough colour on the brush.
I did the pictures on the day after varnishing. This chip wear is normal to me, if I don't use a top sealer.
I don't like it, Essence made the prize advance, gives you more of it's product but isn't able to pull one ore two metal balls in.
BTW the colour looks very boring on my nails, too. I cannot say anything good about it.

Colourful Pastel Nails

Essence 24/7 Base
of every base colour 2 Coats
pinkie: Essence - Iced Latte
ring finger: Catrice - Salmon and Garfunkel
second finger: Essence - Sleepy - Snow White LE
index: Essence - Exist on your right - Ready for Boarding LE
Thumb: Clair's - pastel lilac

Top coats
Essence - Evil Queen - Snow White LE
Essence BTGN Top Sealer

Now I know why everybody loves Salomon and Garfunkel. This colour is so pretty. Don't know if it's neon or pastel, it's even bright and natural.
Also, the green is more I ever expected. I thought it would be lame, but it's a good pastel green colour, whicht I love.
Also, I love 'Iced Latte' and the nude Essenece tone.
Only colour I don't like is 'Sleepy' by Snow White LE by Essence. It lookes much darker than in the bottle. It doesn't have any shimmer. It's dissapointing for me. Don't like it, yet.

Clair's Nails

Essence - Peel off Base - Ready for Boarding LE
Clair's - w/o classification (2 Coats)
Clair's - Glitter w/o classification
Essence BTGN Top Sealer

edit: Essence's Peel off Base worked good in this case. The removed parts were tiny (about 2 mm in size), but it was easier to remove it this way, than using polish remover. No tip wear after 4 days.

The glitter colour is clear and has big gold-green & peach-rosè hexagons and tiny silver particles.
The lilac is a creamy pastell, which is opaque in two thin coats.

Hello Holo

Essence - Peel off Base Coat - Ready for Bording LE
Essence - Hello Holo - Nail Art Topper (3 Coats)
Essence BTGN Top Sealer

The 3 Coats dried very quickly. They are not 100% opaque, specially on the tips.

edit: Peel off Base Coat worked excellent in this case!
The peeled off pieces were about 4-5 mm in size. Also I had almost no Tip Wear after 3 days. I did my household and worked in a garden and my nails looked perfect.
