Essence Me & My Ice Cream polishes swatches and review

Hello ladies! Today I have some quick swatches of 3 of the polishes from the essence Me & My Ice Cream collection which was released recently. I am a HUGE sucker for the trend edition Essence polishes!! There are 4 polishes in the collection but I only managed to pick up 3 unfortunately. I went to every single Priceline I could to find Icylicious but no luck doh!

What they say:

"I scream: ice cream! essence invites you to make a quick stop at an ice cream cart in October and November 2013 with the trend edition “me & my ice cream”. Soft sorbet shades like beige, vanilla, apricot, pink, lavender and mint as well as awesome products in a cool retro look will melt your heart.. Strawberry, sweet woodruff, blueberry or apricot? The longlasting nail polishes in gorgeous pastel shades like pink, mint, lavender and apricot are sure to put you in the mood for ice cream – and summery nails, of course! "

Overall: There is nothing quite like a collection based on one of my favourite food groups!! I absolutely love these cute shades but that's about all that was really positive about the essence Me & My Ice Cream collection unfortunately. Application wasn't great and they were pretty streaky and it took 3 coats for opacity. The shimmer is really subtle and doesn't show up on the nail sadly.

Details: The essence Me & My Ice Cream collection are available from Priceline for $2.95 each.

Thanks for looking as always!! =)


  1. These are so pretty! It's unfortunate that they go on streaky.. I really like essence. Hopefully these show up to Canada.. I would like to get my hands on the makeup :P

    1. I love essence too!! Such a great brand at such affordable prices for good quality products =D Fingers crossed you'll get them in Canada!! The makeup is really cute too but I couldn't get my hands on any doh

  2. *hyperventilating* lols These are too cute. For $2.95 I'll patiently wait for the three layers to dry =) ❤

  3. You have the best manicured hands. Period.

  4. I tried to get my hands on a few of the products from this range but they sold out so quickly and I can see why! The pastel colours are too cute and I love the really glossy finish!
