Yes, you read correctly, Essence has a polish with flakies! It’s from the Colour & Go line and it’s called Glisten Up! Look at this beauty …

Beside flakies there is also shimmer and glitter in this tiny beauty. Love it!

I swatched it on its own and I also layered it over Essie – Mint Candy Apple and Essence – Meet You In Budapest.

Glisten Up! is really sheer. You can see that even after three thick coats you can still clearly see my tips. I mean, it’s lovely on it’s own, but it’s awesome layered over another dark polish. Here’s a macro shot of Glisten Up! layered over Meet You In Budapest.

  1. It looks really nice, when I saw it at pinkmelon I really wanted to have it. But now I see its super sheer, so because of my nails, it would look that good. :ermm:
