Essence week: Glam Rock Trend Edition

By  | 

I saved the best for last. These are, in my opinion, the best nail polishes Essence ever made. Glam Rock was limited edition released in December last year. Among other things, it included three shades of nail polish, which hit me straight in the heart and became my “precious” polishes. I have a story about how they have become my “precious” :biggrin:

I’ve never really cared about new Essence collections, because they were never anything special to me. And I didn’t expect anything special from this one either and then I saw photos on the net. First I saw a shade called Gothic Girl and it was love at first sight. I knew I am going to have difficulties getting the collection, as the Essence Trend Edition collections are very quickly sold out. I made the hunt. No luck. I told all my friends to please look around. I had no luck and almost gave up. And than one day Nati called and told me, that she found all three shades for me. I jumped from joy up to the ceiling. And that’s how these polishes became my “precious” polishes. Nati, thank you again!

Anyway, I got all three shades. I should probably mention, why they are so special. They are holographic :wub: As a rainbow in a bottle .. Let the photos speak for themselves…

Unfortunately the pictures don’t give enough credit to the holographic shimmer. Indeed, the holographic effect is much more noticeable IRL. I’m so happy that I have these beauties!

    Manuela, pozdravljena! Ti laki so bili omejena izdaja oz. posebna kolekcija konec leta 2008, ki je zelo hitro pošla in jo je skoraj nemogoče še dobiti. Vsaj jaz ne vem, kje bi se jo še dalo dobiti. :think:

    wixbetty, this is an European brand. It is sold in drugstores like Müller and DM. And I can tell you this brand is really cheap. The polishes are sold for about $2. Unfortunately, I don’t have any Kaleidoscopes to compare. I have one OMG TMI and what I’ve seen from the pics, I’d say that Kaleidoscopes have larger holo particles. Glam Rock polishes have similar particles than OMG’s.
    The best thing about these polishes is also the perfect application and coverage. I mean, the black one is almost completely opaque in one coat. The second coat is for the depth and to correct the mistakes. Just perfect! I just can’t understand, why do they make such great shades LE… :cwy:

    Meant to ask-  how do they compare to the holo shimmer in the ChG Kaleidoscope collection?

    Just jaw-droppingly gorgeous! Especially the black…love it!

    I know you said they are hard to get ahold of, but where do they sell this line of polish?

    Prva dva že imam, sploh s Pink Punk sem zelo zadovoljna. Obstojnost je naravnost neverjetna in kako je lep :heart:

    iii čudovite slike. Mislim, da si res zadela odtenke. Holografski šimer pa se čudovio vidi tudi na stekleničkah na slikah. Me veseli, da sem te razveselila :)  S tole kolekcijo je Essence kozmetika res zadela terno in škoda, da tega nimajo v redni prodaji.  In to bi bilo res nedopustno, da Maestra tega trojčka ne bi imela  svoji zbirki :w00t:
