Nails In Foil

As usual, I'm posting the swatches of a limited edition in a very timely manner, i.e. after a year after its release : ) But that's me, and my blog is a very direct reflection of my personality. Anyway, today 2 pretty foils from Essence Nails In Style LE - a little flashback to the last summer. 


The first one here on the pictures is Essence Style Me Love, a very thick and opaque warm purple foil - works per-fect for stamping by the way. One coat (!) on the pictures. Dries fast but chips even faster. 



Close-up below. The "foil" actually consists of purple and silver shimmer, you can see the texture very well:

And now onto the second polish, Essence Style For Summernights, which is a tiny bit less interesting - I find. Just because you can find a silver foil everywhere now, and if you missed this LE of Essence you can grab Zoya Trixie or China Glaze Icicle or China Glaze Cheers To You. Or many others. Two easy coats, but my favourite thing is to mattify it. If you have foils, I do advise you to experiment with matte top coats, you'll love the effect :)





So, yay or nay to the foils? I know, the best season for them is winter, but I just can't switch to spring/summer shades. Not yet. What do you think?

  1. Ты не права, второй тоже ну очень хорош! Я лег так замечательно, никаких полосок, и правда металлическое покрытие, ну супер! Короче, мне оба нравится. Интересно, а эту коллекцию в принципе можно найти в продаже?
    А я покупаю новинку сразу, а показываю ее невесть когда )))

    1. Я думаю, их найти уже нереально, даже на ибее нету - год назад выпустили ведь. Я и не знала, что тебе металлики нравятся :) Я тоже новинки которые лимитки хватаю сразу, те, что в постоянной коллекции - раздумываю много перед покупкой :)

  2. Yay for the foils! =)) They both look great on you and I wore the pink one just couple of days ago. And I don't think they're more wintery polishes, I wear them when I feel like too. ;) I'm just not the pastel/creme kinda girl, I need shimmer and lots of it! ;D

    1. Wiiiiii I'm glad I have readers who enjoy the foils as much as I do!! Although I'm a very pastel/creme girl, I love foils and glitters too :)

  3. Yay to the foils! I have many many of shimmery polishes and I love what happens when you mate them. Just totally different color and therefore different polish. I love the silver one.

    1. Absolutely! You got my point!! Although sometimes I encounter epic fails when trying to mattify shimmers lol. Since then I try everything on a nail wheel first :)

    1. Oh you should! It looks great both by itself and matte - I have matte photos, but they look too shimmery, not like in real life.. that's why I didn't post them.

    1. Thanks! You're totally right about everyone showing same stuff right after release! But that's okay, what I get bored of is seeing 20 previews of the same new collection in a row, lol! :)

  10. I'm a big foil fan. And Again, I'm regreting not getting these two, only because they look so amazing on you. But I have a similar purple from Color CLub, so that's not too bad. :)

    1. I also follow this pattern :D
      I have the photos of silver foil matte, but they didn't turn out good - matte is almost not visible. I'll try to add asap!
