I haven't bought too many polishes lately, but actually Essence just came available here in Finland recently and even here in my home town, so of course I had to go and buy at least couple. I think Essence is really one of the best affordable nail polish brands and I'm so happy that I can just go and buy their products now on whenever I feel like, I don't have to order online anymore or travel some other European country to do that. So big yay!
The other one of the two themes for this week of #ablecs15 is My Newest Polish, so I chose to use two of my newest Essences for this theme as they really are the last ones I've bought at this moment.
We don't have that wide selection here, but at least something and I was happy that now I had the chance to buy some of those new gel nail polishes by Essence. I actually bought four different shades and a top coat, but I decided to use only two of them (+the top coat) for this manicure. I chose to use the vivid blue crelly called Electriiiiiic (hate that name!) as my base color and then the beautiful shimmery turquoise green called Prince Charming for the blobs.
Blobbicures have been really in lately, so of course I had to join in the game too! This was my first time trying this technique and it truly is incredibly easy and fast nail art. You don't really need anything else than couple polishes as you can do the blobs with the brush of the polish. I used a dotting tool for it just to have a little bit more control over the dots, but you don't really need to that if you don't want to.
This is probably a bit unusual color combo, but I loved it! I think these two shades looked really good together and they made this manicure really fun. Once again I was also really pleased with Essence's quality, both of these polishes were really great ones! Like I said, this is really one of the best affordable brands out there. I don't really like the design of the bottles and the brand isn't really very interesting, but the polishes are certainly worth of their cost and Essence has quite a few really beautiful shades in their nail polish line.
