Momma's Choice! Essence Edition

Hello darlings...

  I had an "ok" weekend. I'm hoping for some answers from my doctor this Tuesday but there is still a few more tests and things that I need to have done.
  So, if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you may have seen that we made a new addition to our family. This was the best part of my weekend. And this is why I had my mom choose me my Monday mani. See we adopted a lovely kitty whom we named Truffles. A big thanks to one of my lovelies, Jenna Lynne, for the name idea :)!
Some of my lovelies have already suggested "Truffle Thursdays :)"... lol
  She is Eight months old and came from the coolest, cleanest, no kill, kitty shelter you have ever seen. The Cat Depot in Sarasota, FL. Currently they had a lot of kitties in need of homes and there were sooo many sweet boys and girls. If you live in the area and are looking for a pet friend I highly suggest you check The Cat Depot out.  
  So anywho, Muffin was far too distracted by her new baby sister to pick me something so I had my awesome Mamacita help me out :). She picked for me Essence's Underwater and No More Drama. She liked both too much to decide and I looooved the combo. For this mani I took inspiration from Deniz at Emerald Sparkled.
  Underwater is the Navy Blue and No more Drama is the soft Lilac tone. I beyond love these Essence Color & Go polishes. Only .99 cents, excellent formulas and cute colors. Oh and I can't forget the fact that they have GREAT brushes. They resemble O.P.I Pro- Wide but like a scaled down version so it fits in the bottle. For both of these colors I only needed Two coats of color and the formula could not have been more pigmented or smoother. You cannot see it but Underwater has scattered light Blue glitters in a dense creme base. It looks very pretty. No more Drama is a simple Lilac creme. very flattering and totally up my alley. I really like how this mani turned out quite a lot :). Thanks for the awesome color choice Momma!

Have you guys tried these polishes?

  5. Nice colors mamacita! I'm not even a blue fan and I might have to get underwater. I only have one Essence I got recently and I haven't tried it yet.

    Aww, Truffles is sweet. Cute name too. You should have had him try to pick one out lol. Does muffin like him?

    My VDay mani is to die for! I used China Glaze Anchors Away for a sailor themed lovey mani.
