NOTD ~ Off To Miami by Essence

*Effortlessly gorgeous nails alert!!*

I just can’t get enough of Essence it seems. I have bought yet another nail polish from them and this one is a massive favorite. 109 Off to Miami is a peachy salmon color that goes on your nail effortlessly, dries off real quick and last for eons. Honestly. The formal is extremely superb.

I have been reaching out for Off to Miami so much these days. It is just the perfect color to wear in this confused weather where we are not sure whether it is summer, autumn, spring or winter out there or all four of them at once. It suits all skin tones and goes well with neutral colored dresses as well as colorful ones. You don’t need to change your nail color for the evening *woop woop*

I’ve been getting quite a lot of compliments on it and people often ask which nail polish I am wearing. It’s such a fabulous feeling, ha. Essence nail polishes range impresses me yet again. Can’t wait to go back and purchase another gorgeous shade.

What do you think of Essence Nail Polish range? Do you like this color? Do let me know in the comments below! 🙂

NOTD ~ Flashy Pumpkin by Essence

If you live in the Middle East, summer is never really over. While other countries celebrate spring in full swing, we wait on just the tiny ruffle of leaves. It’s not false to say we mostly experience season summer year round. Well it does give us a privilege of wearing summer clothes, accessories and do summer bits like go to the beach for a swim and not bundle up in our sweaters and stay home when we don’t feel like it, ha, and this is when I present a new nail color which goes well with our hot weather.

Flashy Pumpkin (does it ring a bell? :D) by Essence is a bright/neon orange color that goes with about anything and I do mean anything. It even looks amazing with black and grey dresses, what else would one need. I wanted to get it from a while but when I went to purchase it I was dissuaded by a friend but once home I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Hence I had to make another trip to Essence’s counter the very next day.

I have been enjoying this color very much. I love wearing it with anything white. It gives the right pop of color any plain dress or tee-shirt requires. It is such a happy and bright color and I often reach out for it more than I do for Wanna Be Your Sunshine, again from Essence. Another reason why I love Flashy Pumpkin is because of its name as it reminds me of The Slutty Pumpkin from How I Met Your Mother.

Now that Halloween is just a few days away I think I have an idea what I want to dress up as, ha. Flashy Pumpkin, you are going to come very handy this year. *evil laugh*

Have a good day everyone!

Nail Polish ~ Wanna Be Your Sunshine by Essence

Wanna Be Your Sunshine by Essence (famtaqblog.wordpress.com)

Wanna Be Your Sunshine by Essence (famtaqblog.wordpress.com) 2

After buying That’s What I Mint (link here), I was so impressed by the quality of Essence nail polishes that I went back to purchase some more and as 145 Flashy Pumpkin was already on my wishlist (link here) I had to go back anyway. I entered The Sultan Centre Qurum to get only that but ended up buying another bright shade that had me at hello. 😀

137 Wanna Be Your Sunshine is a bright shade of yellow and makes you want to instantly change in to your swim suit and go off to the beach or wear a flowy sundress in white and show off your pretty sunny nails. It is such a happy shade that it lifts your mood too. (Tried and tested, my friend)

It took me about two coats to get a flawless texture and opaque nails. These lasted long too like That’s What I Mint. This is exactly what I love about Essence. They have such pretty nail colors with amazing quality and at such affordable prices. RO 1 for a nail polish is not a bad price especially if you compare it to brands like Rimmel/Revlon that start at RO 3.500 or what we get from exhibitions here (which are considered to be low priced but are not and their quality is super bad too).

I love the packaging too. The bottle is pear shaped and the brush is wide enough to cover your nail in one go. It can also be easily carried in a bag if you are rushing out and don’t have time to paint your nails.

I am very happy I got this color in my nail polish collection.

Which is your favorite sunny nail polish from?

Love
