Nails: Greens and Golds

Posted on: August 19, 2013

Not a very original title, but that’s basically what I did here. I wanted to try out Essence nail polishes, and I was enamored by this shade, Gold Fever. It has a clear base with a lot of gold glitters, along with a bit of red glitter. I bought this at SM Makati, for Php99 only.

Since this is a glitter topper, I chose my favorite Dazzle Dry Me d’Forest Queen as base color. The deep green will showcase the golden glitters very well, and I was right! Check it out!


I made a mini nail art of it as well, by applying the Essence glitter topper in various ways. Too late when I realized that the brush can be used on its side!  It looks much better on my right hand.

I made sure to leave the ring finger with just the Essence Gold Fever to show you how it would look on its own. It’s a little sheer so I used three coats. The ones on the green are only two coats.

And check it out under sunlight! The gold just glitters out at you!

Have you tried any Essence glitter toppers? How did it work for you?

Essence nail polishes are 5-free and cruelty-free.
