Review and swatches: Essence Season of Extremes TE

I hate it when this happens – huge limited edition full of nail polishes that I have to have … but no time to swatch everything. This time – Essence Season Of Extremes TE is culprit for my dilemma. :biggrin:

Essence Season of Extremes TE nail polishes

This limited edition is roughly divided into 4 sections … and I bought at least one from each category. :blush:

1) Single nude polishes

  • The Nude The Better: yellowish beige creme nail polish. My brush was pretty bad – black particles in the polish, uneven bristles …
  • Did Someone Say Nude?: pastel green shade. Application is not perfect but top coat evens the “rough edges”.
  • Nude Or What?: grayed out cooler violet shade.
  • Nude Rules!: elegant cool brown nail polish.

2) Duo nude polishes

  • My Best Nude Friends And Me: base color is slightly on warmed brown side with tiny shimmer in it. In the detail photo you can see the combination with layering side. 2 coats + (layering polish) + top coat.

3) Single vibrant colors

  • Pimp My Bright: yellowish nail polish (not the sunny kind but more towards the orange side).
  • On The Bright Side: orange neon nail polish. Pretty sheer – VNL even after 3 coats … but that is nothing unusual for neon nail polishes. I usually wear them over white base. Application was not demanding. Satin finish.
  • Bright Alert!: pink neon nail polish. Formula is the same as in On The Bright Side.
  • Little Miss Bright: pretty purple shade, but the formula is not the best. Sheer, uneven application.

4) Colorful duos

  • We Are All Bright: base green comes in creme finish and is one of those lovely greens that look good yellowish skin tone. It’s little bit muted and as such more wearable. Layering side is pretty boring and flat purple shimmer.
  • It’s Two Bright: blue base is drool worthy cyan blue. Yellowish pink duochrome shimmer has grown on me … at least it looks “alive” unlike the We Are All Bright one.

  1. Omg… I want most of the nail polishes from this collection! :biggrin: Thank you for the swatches and the mini review, very helpful as always (my wallet hates you though :P ) :nails: Stavroula @drugstoreandbargainlover’s last post …Haul : Collective one (Essence, Sephora, Garnier, Priorities, Palmolive, H&M)My Profile

  2. Pastels and neons and shimmery shades all in one TE? meeeh.. And the colours are not that unique, right? My Best Nude Friends And Me looks pretty though :unsure:

  3. Najprej sta mi bila dva odtenka všeč, potem ko sem jih pa videla v živo, sem si pa premislila in nisem nič kupovala :yes:

  4. i really like the bright colours from this collection!

  5. Mene kolekcija sploh ni pritegnila. Po swatchih sodeč, bom enkrat ujela dvojčke, sta mi še najbolj zanimiva, sploh kremni podlagi. Sicer pa dokaj običajne barve. začuda mi je všeč oranžen neonček, vendar je očitno izjemno prosojen, tako da ne bom lomila šparanja zaradi njega. :biggrin:

  6. Did Someone Say Nude?, Nude or What?, It’s Two Bright :wub:
    P.S.: Danes sem dobila vaš paketek, najlepša vam hvala! :rose: Lakec je že sproban (bo kmalu full mani ;)), šminko imam pa tudi že na sebi – perfektna rdeča! :stars: Nuša’s last post …Swatches and Review: Wet’n'Wild Ice Baby Nail Polish CollectionMy Profile

  7. If I don’t had the Poolside collection from China Glaze already (6 neon polish) i will buy the neons! (orange and pink).

  8. Sicer jih v živo še nisem videla, a po fotografijah sodeč so mi lepi čisto vsi po vrsti. :stars: Mamy’s last post …My childhood homeTam, kjer sem domaMy Profile

  9. On the bright side je katastrofalen, zvečer sem si nalakirala nohte s tem lakom, naslednji dan je lak dobesedno popokal, odluščil se je z nohta. :unsure: Imam veliko lakov, ampak kaj takega pa še ne. Poleg tega je pa potrebno več plasti, zelo je prosojen. Odsvetujem, čeprav je lepa barva. Zelenkast lak iz iste kolekcije je pa odličen, tako da ni problem v celotni kolekciji :)

  10. kupila sem samo It’s two bright, ostalo me ni mikalo.sej so luškane barva, vendar nič kar moram nujno imeti :) (in predvsem, šparam za fruity le :D
    lp
