Essence - Chirp Chirp with China Glaze glitter
Heya everyone! My Essence week was ruined yesterday when I didn't have the time to post, but no matter, we continue today. I have a not so typical for me polish to show you. Essence Chirp Chirp was a part of Natventurista LE and I didn't care for it at all. A nude stuff with pink shimmer? I'll pass, thank you! But then I saw swatches at Das Experiment. Naturally, on her *perfect* nails, the polish looked amazing. I wanted it immediately, but by then the LE was long long gone and I doubted I'll get it. Strange enough, Natventurista is one of those limited editions I can see in some forsaken jar in DMs even today. So I found my bottle of Chirp Chirp and I'm glad I did, it's one of those nudes I adore.
One in the nature, since that's the whole theme of the collection. Plus, you can see what I love about this most, my nails look so perfectly clean. :)
I tried to caught some of the duochrome shimmer Chirp Chirp contains, but it was really hard to in the dull weather I had when I wore it. On the photograph up you can see a bit of the pink shimmer and on the one below a hint of the green one.
The formula and brush were great on Chirp Chirp. Three coats, an no clean up. I love the final result. This LE caught me by surprise, I didn't think I'll get one thing from it. In the end I have 4 items from Natventurista, 5, if you count both brushes.
I layered China Glaze Marry A Millionaire on Chirp Chirp a few days later. It's a part of Eye Candy 3D Glitters Collection for Winter 2011, and I loved the Marilyn Monroe theme it had. Still, Marry A Millionaire was a disappointment for me, which I didn't expect, being a unique glitter in my stash.
OK, FYI, the polish doesn't look that bad in real life, my pictures turned out horrible for some reason. But I didn't like it as much as I thought I will. Oh well. Plenty other glitter to play with!
Did you get any items from Natventurista LE or Eye Candy collection?
Thank you for reading!
