Essence Anti Split Base
Essence Kiss of the Mermaid (2x)
Inspired by Nihrida's blog which I really recommend I bought this polish. Currently this seems to be one of her favourite polishes. You can see her posting about it here, here and here.
Mine seems to be a bit different. I find it quite difficult to make up, but rather tend to describe this polish with a tend to pink, not coral like Nihrida does. The base colour is a light red with a cool colour temperature, but even if I look at her pictures, it looks different on my nails. This could have a lot of reasons like wrong storaging in the drug store or maybe we have only a different sight of view.
I had a lot of problems to catch the right colour with my Nikon DSLR. All pictures had a light classic red and this is not what the polish looks like. So I photoshoped it by my best to the colour it has on my nails in real. The 1st Picture gives you the best idea of how it looks.
Two coats had still a VNL but I didn't care in this case. It dries very fast and I didn't want to use TopCoat. First Tipwear after 2 days, but I did my household and had a lot of contact with water and detergents. For this case the Tipwear was less than I expected.
This colour is very unique. I have no other light red I love like this one.
