'E' is for Essence


Hello sweeties!
I hope you are having a great week so far :) I am here to present you another of my untried nail polishes, continuing with the "ABC Challenge". Today's choice is my favourite drugstore brand: Essence, in the colour Mermaids Secret.

What is ABC Challenge?
It is a challenge, organized by Helena from Lacky Corner, we are doing with some Facebook fellows who love and collect nail polish and have a lot of colours that have never been tried.The scope of the challenge is to start using those untried nail polishes in alphabetical order! Today is the turn of letter "E".

Representing the letter E, I'm showing you Essence Mermaids Secret from Aquatix collection. This polish is a bright deep magenta semi-sheer base with tons of cyan blue-turquoise flakies! This is a typical nail polish we call "flaky finish".


What is a "flakies nail polish"? 
Flakies are small transparent particles that are flat and have irregular shapes. Their size may varie but it is generally visible to the naked eye. These particles are coloured and usually have the capacity to shift colours according to the direction of the light.

Mermaids Secrets was a limited edition nail polish that launched with Aquatix Collection in August 2014 together with a turquoise nail polish that stole the scene. That was the main reason why this rare beauty remained untried for so long!

Please, visit  my challenge mates here below for more beautiful nail polish swatches beginning with letter "E" :)


Life and Stuff

How is your week so far? I am trying to find a new schedule to my posts as next Sunday we will be celebrating my boy's fourth b-day. I thought I would try and post my ABC challenge during the week instead of the weekend, since I really have a lot of things to prepare for his party! I am so excited about it, almost more than him, hihihi.

Also, I am trying to get some of my posts scheduled for the following weeks, since I am starting to plan a two weeks trip to Argentina with my children. I will be travelling alone with them, and it is a 26 hours trip from door to door, so I will need to have everthing quite organized. It will be hard work, but I am so happy to go that I don't really care.  


Wish you a fantastic day my lovelies!

Love,
Nati
