Essence - Best friends

Hello ladies !

Today I'll show you Best friends 06 from Essence... I have this little guy for almost a year now, and I never wore it before... And I can't seem to find a reason why. I remember not liking him at that time...

I've lacquered my nails with it yesterday as I was gonna do a half moon manicure, but I'll just keep it like this, it looks very feminine I think :) 
And my fingers look sooo long !

The downside of this polish is the finish, which is a typical pearl finish, and it's rather tricky to apply... as you can see, it looks kinda streaky... is there a trick to make it look more even ? Maybe a topcoat ? I'm not wearing one on the pictures.

What I liked about this one is that it's not really a white pearl, there's a little pink tint to it in the bottle... But I can't seem to find it on the nails... and that's a bit of a pity... Maybe in a different light :)
Do you own a lot of pearls ? Manage to make them not look streaky ?

  1. I really like this shade, it looks clean if that makes sense?! I have one pearl polish but it is very sheer and takes many layers to build up but this shade looks really nice. xx

  2. This is a really pretty pearly color! :) But you should try a half moon mani too. :P

  3. Very soft and pretty! Finishes like this can be tricky; I try to pay close attention when I'm applying so the brushstrokes all line up nicely but don't always succeed.

  4. I'm having a giveaway on my blog for a necklace from pie n the sky if you'd like to check it out. :) x
