Autumnal nails from Essence - Gorgeous Bling Bling and Gold Fever

Ah isn't my sister so nice?  We went to the shops last weekend and had to have a look in the local chemist to see if there was anything new and exciting to take a look at.  Wouldn't you know, the Essence stand was full to the brim of the whole range of new polishes and so she bought me a few, ahhhh, sisters....

As I'm all about autumn (more on that next week), this one was the first one to catch my eye.  It's called Gorgeous Bling Bling and it's a rich russet colour with flecks of gold running through it.  It makes me think of harvests, Thanksgiving and the changing colours of the leaves.  This was fired into the basket first.  Yes, we got a basket in the chemist.  Joanne knows me too well.  I don't stop at just one polish, especially when it comes to Essence.


It goes on smoothly and evenly and I used just two coats here for the photos.  But I didn't stop there. 


This next polish, called Gold Fever, is a sparklicious glittery polish that is packed full of gold glitter and the teeniest amount of red glitter.  It'd be a good one to have for Christmas manicures.  I know, sorry about the C word.


I don't think it's polish I'd use on it's own as it's pretty sheer and I'd end up having to use about four coats but look at one coat of it over Gorgeous Bling Bling.  Sparkledy autumnal nails!


These polishes were a piddly €1.79 from my local chemist and are available from chemist nationwide along with Dunnes and Penneys.  We, and when I say we, I mean Joanne, bought six altogether so stay tuned for more stunning shades from budget brand Essence.

  5. I got the gold in its old bottle for 65c a while back, bargain or what! The name Gorgeous Bling Bling makes me want to heave but it's a great colour and it might be coming home with me tomorrow.... is it normal to bulk-buy polish before a self-imposed ban?

    1. Em, of course it's normal, it's the only way to get through a self imposed spending ban.... I'm not allowing myself in shops for this month in the hopes I can save spondoolies

  6. Absolutely love the combination of the two polishes! I adore Essence but not a fan of the new bottles, a little bit cheap looking.
