I try to always be aware of Essence trend editions, but somehow this Winter wonderful! collection skipped my attention – so you can imagine my surprise when I spotted it at a local drugstore. The A Winter’s Tale top coat looked gorgeous on its own, but the snowflakes on its caps made me buy it at the end.

The polish is full of tiny and even tinier irridescent glitters, that give the nails an etheric glow. I applied it over white so that I’ll have snow-like nails. I sponged them to make sure I have enough glitters on my nails with only one “coat”, but before that I made sure to use some cuticle defender to make the cleaning part easier. After applying I used a matte top coat to even out the surface, then a shiny one to make it sparkly. It “only” took an hour, but I’m still indecisive whether it was worth that much time. :):)

Actually I really really like how my nails look with this polish on: sparkly, but not tacky, simple, but super elegant. :) So what’s our final decision? Was it worth to buy it? :)

    For sure you had to buy it. The packaging is cute and the result is so elegant… But i ask to myself: why to use first a matte topcoat then a glossy one and not two coats of the glossy one? Is the matte one better to give a perfect surface?ReplyCancel

      It seems to me that the thickness of the matte top coat makes it easier to completely even out the surface of the nails. :)ReplyCancel

    Definitely worth! It looks so great over the white base (btw what polish it is? ;)) It’s waiting on my desk to by tried out and now I can’t wait to paint it all over my nails! :) Oh, and same question here: why you used that matte top coat?ReplyCancel

      Oh, you’ll love it, I’m sure. :) So yeah, it seems to me that it’s easier to even out the surface of the nails with a matte top coat, because they’re usually thicker. :)ReplyCancel
