30 Day Challenge - Day 8 & 9 Essence

Hello everyone! I am sorry I did not post day 8 yesterday. I was having some issues with my computer and cannot blog from my phone because I am ridiculously slow to learn new things on my phone. But I am posting day 8 and 9 today and I decided to make them BOTH Essence polishes. This is the first time wearing both of these. I mean obviously, it is a challenge for 30 days of untried polish lol.

This first polish is called Choose Me! I bought this at ULTA for $0.99.
This is another one of those polishes that make me feel like a Mermaid. It is an amazing shade of blue with lots of pretty gold sparkle. If you can't find this polish don't worry. There are a few just like this. The dupes include Zoya Charla, OPI Catch Me in Your Net, and Orly Haley's Comet. 

This next polish was also $0.99 at my local ULTA. 
This is Essence Where is the Party?
This polish is a duochrome. It is a gunmetal grey polish that flashes purple and green in certain lights. The purple is much easier to see than the green. I used 2 coats for these pictures. 
 I generally do not like darker colors but this is just light enough that I really dig it. And the duochrome effect is gorgeous.

Which one do you like more? 
I apologize for the pictures of Choose Me! I was actually just getting off work and had not eaten all day. I was so shaky and could not get good pictures!

  1. super pretty!!! Choose Me! is in my untrieds as well!!!

  2. I am pretty sure I have Choose Me in my untrieds also!

  3. I love Essence polishes! Seeing that I've never, ever finished a polish (and top coats don't count! lol), I think the size and price for these are just right. I already have the Orly dupe for the first one so I didn't pick up the Essence onee.. I got the second one because the duochrome looked really amazing in the bottle, but I haven't gotten around to trying it yet :x
