After a month of delay Essence We Saw It First (WSIF) TE finally reached our drugstores.

If I understand Essence correctly – then this collection is preview of new products that will reach our stores this fall as part of the regular line.

Our kind Saša managed to find all four polishes and matte top coat for me.

Essence: We Saw It First nail polishes (bottles)

What Do You Think? is interesting mix of peachy and coral shades with added gold shimmer. Application strongly resembles that of the pastel shades, so it’s a little bit more demanding.

Shimmer is almost invisible on the nails. You need really strong light to be able to spot it, that is why I used detail from the bottle.

Take a look what do you get if you add top coat over What Do You Think?:

Lime Up! is totally Shrek color. Yellow green shades are not my favorites, so I don’t imagine I’ll ever wear this polish again.   Application was very similar to that of What Do You Think? shade.

Proof that this is “Shrek like” color: :D

I made comparison between Essie Matte About You and Essence Matte Top Coat. Effect is almost identical, I just hope that those nasty white dots will stay away from Essence matte top coat.

My favorite from WSIF collection is Movie star. Darker gray color with creme finish looks really lovely. Application was also great.

And mattified with Essence Matte Top Coat.

Darkest shade in this collection is named Absolutely Stylish – dark brown color with green (almost turquoise) and pinkish shimmer. Application was OK.

“Must have” from WSIF are for me Matte Top Coat and Movie Stare, others I could live without.

Price for 8ml of matte top coat is 1,89 EUR and 1,49 EUR for 5ml of Colour&Go shades.

Now I’m anxiously waiting if I’ll manage to get my hands on Denim Wanted! TE. Now those polishes I really want!

Which one is your favorite from WSIF TE?

  1. Jako mi se sviđaju Lime up! i Movie Star :wub: Tko zna kad će ta kolekcija doći kod nas (ako uopće i dođe). Matt Top Coat super izgleda. Ja imam Alessandrov i isto je odličan, ne ostavlja mjehuriće i fino matira, ali voljela bih isprobati i ovaj :yes: Hvala za swatcheve :wink:

  2. Hm, they changed the colour of “What do u think?” a bit. In March, when it was released first, it was without shimmer and a bit darker. I’m very impressed of the matte top coat, I like it a lot!
    Is there a similar grey tone to “Movie Star”? It looks so similar to maybe Catrice’s “London’s Weather Forecast” or Essence Sufer Babe “Point Break”.
    In Austria the Denim Wanted-Collection is now available at Müller. In dm approximately next week.

  3. kako sam ljubomorna! 150 km južnije i  jedna granica koja nas dijeli i nama još ne dođe kolekcija! no, predomislila sam se, nabavit ću je cijelu!

  4. Mene pa zanima primerjava sivkota s Catrice Londons weather forecast. Danes sem ga imela gor in sem stala pred stojalom pol ure in ga primerjala s stekleničko… :whistle: enostavno sta se mi zdela zelo podobna, takšnih 2 pa res ne rabim (čeprav mi je super barva!) in ga potem nisem vzela. A se samo meni zdi, da sta si malo v sorodu? :blush:
    Imam pa po novem mat nadlak! :wub:

  5. Aaah i want the matt topcoat so bad ! But this TE isn’t availble in Belgium :angry: Although i’ve read somewhere that the topcoat will be released in the regular line as well ? I hope so ! :undecided:

  6. :wink: čudoviti so! Sploh zelenko, moder in ta zadnji :) upam, da bom jutri imela kaj sreče po trgovinah :)

    Imam pa eno prošnjo/vprašanje: a bo kdaj mobile varianta parokeets? V Nokiinem brskalniku mi prikaže stran samo na pol, v Operi mobile pa se vse prekriva. Zato bi bilo kaj takega res dobrodošlo.

    • Bomo pogledale kaj se da narediti. :yes:

      HTC in Samsung normalno prikažeta stran, tako da niti nismo vedele, da so pri Nokii težave. Hvala za obvestilo. :rose:

  7. Wow, these colors looks pretty awesome! I really like the gray shade and the top coat. I hope the top coat will came here too and the gray Movie Star will be soon part of my collection thanks to you.  :wave:

  8. Moja denarnico bo počivala, ker mi noben ni tako zelo všeč, da bi ga hotela imeti, najlepši na tvojih nohtih je gotovo Movie Star, vendar enostavno ni odtenek, ki bi ga nosila. Edino mat nadlak me je zelo lepo presenetil, hvala za primerjavo z Essie, točno na to sem pomislila ob začetku prispevka in očitno je matiranje na enaki stopnji. Edino tele bele pikice ne vem kaj so, to se začne pojavljat pri mat nadlakih slabše kvalitete? :undecided:   Tako da se bom zdaj verjetno odločala med Essence in Manhattan mat nadlakom. :)

    • Ne vem, če gre za slabšo kvaliteto ali le za bolj občutljivo formulo in srečno roko pri izbiri. Dosti jih nima nobenih težav z Essie MAY, medtem, ko se meni kljub rednemu čiščenju vratu stekleničke neprestano pojavljajo bele pikice.  :hmm:

      • Aha, hvala za razlago! :) Pomoje bom kar tega Essencovega vzela, že dolgo cincam pri mat nadlaku.

  9. Zadnja dva su mi prekrasna.  :wub:
    Prvi je još ok, ali ovaj Shrek mi je baš grozan.  :unsure:
    Ali Matte top coat mi se čini odličan!!!  :thumb:

  10. Thanks for the swatch! Those haven’t arrived here yet but I’ll hope they will. I’m not a big fan of that blue shade but I do like the Absolutely Stylish, especially after mattified.

  11. What do I think definitivno nije moja boja…a ostala tri plus matte nadlak…jedva čekam posjet dm-u :wink:

  12. I reaaaaally like Movie Star ! But hell, I absolutely love this kind of color so it’s no surprise ^^

  13. wow.. thanksd for the swatches.. i love i love every color i’ve been wanting shrek color though im not sure if it will fit on my skin tone.. but still i love to try it… :haha:
