Essence Metallics

Hello beautiful! How are you tonight? I'm having a great weekend with my family. Hubby and I had a movie date and yesterday he picked up Glitter in the Air for me. How cool is that? I just had to have it after seeing L's, Bright Light's Big Color, beautiful swatch. I'll post pics tomorrow but today I'm sharing one of my lemming's from the Essence Metallics Collection. I've been waiting for them for so long and they finally arrived!

One of my favorites from the set is Copper Rules. I was afraid it wouldn't contrast well with my skin tone but I must say it looks great. I used the magnet from my L'Oreal polish because I couldn't get the Essence magnet to work. Please let me know if you have any techniques or tricks to share. I just couldn't figure it out, lol.

Its a shame these magnetic polishes weren't released in the US. They're a lot of fun and the design is an attention getter.

Well I have to get back to my family now. Thanks to everyone that entered my giveaway. I'll post results soon. Oh and I hope you can see the picture. It looks like image shack is acting up tonight.


  1. wow it looks like your nails have a raised design on them

  2. Amazing!
    I couldn't buy these nail polishes, but it looks great on you! (^_^)

  3. That is awesome. I have this set, I really need to wear it. When it was sent to me by a friend, she sent a different magnet and encouraged me to experiment with magnets and holding them different directions. I've not tried it yet, but those were the tips she gave to me. She told me not to bother with the essence magnet.

  4. Thanks so much ladies for the sweet compliments ladies :)

    @LWTT. I was so excited to get them and couldn't wait. Next time I'll just try a refrigerator magnet. Thanks for the tip!

    @Stacy. The L'Oreal magnet is very strong and did raise the polish. I like how it turned out. Sort of 3-D.

  5. Oh man, I'm in the US and want these so bad. How did you get them?

  6. your magnet is just fantastic! unfortunately I have only the essence one, which can create only stripes, and those are far not so pretty as this flower design. :(

  7. I love the design you ended up with - it looks 3-dimensional!

  8. I love this magnet design! A shame we can't find this loreal one anymore...

  9. Thanks so much ladies!

    @MoLo. I received them in a swap. If you add them to your wishlist maybe one of the International ladies can help you find them.

    @Bratankowa. Essence is coming out with a new magnet. I'm not sure if its star-shaped but the shape on the box is a star, so there's hope :)

    @Beauty Addict. I agree. So many of the old lines are amazing.
