I’ve bought quite a few taupe shades lately. Why? You’ll think I’m, crazy (I know I do). I saw this girl with taupe shirt and turquoise design printed on in … and now I want to have that exact combo on my nails.

I’m obsessed – I admit it. “Normal” person would probably go on a hunt for shirt … not he polishes. :D

So – how alike are Essence Walk Of Fame, Most Wanted and Manhattan 96P (part of Spice Up Your Nails LE):

I found out I’m not really into the “pure” taupe colors – I prefer lighter gray-brown shades with purple tones.

So it’s no great surprise I loved Manhattan 96P the most. 96P is chameleon color thou – in cool light you see the purple tone and in warmer light you don’t. I loved the application and brush of 96P and Walk Of Fame. Add good formula to the mix and you got to love them.

Most Wanted didn’t do anything for me. Color, brush, application – nothing worth mentioning.

Before I removed the polish I added one layer of Essence matte top coat.

  1. :nails: I’ve always loved taupes.  Now everyone has them in their collection.  Pretty good for me.

  2. Thanks for the comparison. It would also be interesting in which way Essence “Walk of Fame “ is similar to Catrice “From Dusk to Dawn” and p2 “Rich & Royal”. I love the purple undertone. And there’s also a small similarity between Essence “Most Wanted” and Catrice “Lost in Mud” (I compared only the bottles) or maybe Essence Into the Wild LE “Desert Fox”.

  3. Še dobro da imam Manhattnčka drugače bi še morala imeti Walk of fame :blush: Most wanted pa me ne pritegne :undecided:

  4. Sva tri mi se sviđaju :wub: Walk of Fame imam danas i baš sam ga htjela pohvaliti, kad ga stavim na blog, kako se lako maže i OK prekriva :yes:

  5. Znam kako ti je kad vidiš lak u trgovini…tako je i meni,umjesto da trošim na garderobu,cipele i torbe ja pičim po lakovima :biggrin:
    Od ovih gore najinteresantniji mi se čini manhattan.
    p.s.Ima koja klinika za liječenje ovisnosti od lakiranja noktiju i kupovanja ‘samo još jednog laka’? :nails:
