Essence Planet Earth Splatter Mani

Hi hello and happy Caturday!!

  Today I have a totally awesome splatter mani. I haven't really been shy about my love of Essence Color and Go polishes. I really wish that the ENTIRE Essence line was available in the states. They release some really incredible stuff in Europe... I own some of that awesomeness thanks to the lovely Deborah but I just cannot get enough of these little polishes.... So, it had been a while since I busted out my Color & Go's and I was really wanting to play with some of these because I just love these little suckers. I have a really cool mix of colors and I always want to mix them in really contrasting ways... As such :D!
  So for this mani I started with alternating bases of Lime Up! and Underwater. Then I splattered with the alternating colors using a little coffee stirrer straw thingie. I love those because I can really aim at the nail and it makes it a little less messy and a lot faster for me. How cute is this combination?! It looks like pictures of Planet Earth from Space or something. I am just over the moon with this mani! To top it all off I added a coat of INM Northern Lights.
And there you have it! I love these polishes!! They are .99 cents and they are just AMAZING. They have outstanding formulas and great brushes. I love theseee!!! Go get some!! lool!!

Happy Caturday!!

  5. Brilliant. I never thought of using a coffee stir to do a splatter manicure!! I was using a pen I took apart and made a mess of anything and everything local! Ill have to add a couple straws to my collection now :)

  8. This looks awesome! I have yet to try a splatter mani!

    I was just saying the other day on my blog about how much I love the Essence polishes! I mean really, 99 cents?!? Can't go wrong there! And I have yet to find one that didn't have a wonderful formula, and I really like their brushes!

  10. This is a super cute mani! I love it. The colors really go well together too. I wish I could find some Essence polishes but the only place I know that they're sold is kind of far. Maybe one day I'll get some!

  16. It's funny how the grass is always greener on the other side :D I'm from Germany and I'm really not that big on essence at all. I get some of their limited editions, but I've never really paid attention to the regular range. Instead I'm coveting various US brands that would cost me an arm and a leg to acquire. To be fair, I have generally been disappointed with the durability of Essence. They all start flaking off after just one days or less. The formula might be great, but what use is it if I have to redo my nails all the time?

    Also, why on earth do they cost twice as much in Germany as they do in the US? Unfair *pouts*

  20. Maybe I am getting old. I just don't like this one. Where the yellow/green is hits my gut about like Trendsetter from fall China Glaze did and OPI fall whatever it was call about 'hurry up - Roll Down the Window! Naw - not getting old - just a tish more classic leaning than this I guess.

  21. That looks absolutely amazing! I especially like the light layer of glitter on top :)

  22. I love this mani! But I'm totally not understanding what you're talking about with the coffee stirrer or how to do it. I'd love to see something step by step!!!

  23. I tried this last week and made the biggest mess. I think I used too much nail polish on the stirrer. i'm going to try this again in the future but use less polish.
