Essence Cute as Hell Collection

Wednesday, March 3, 2010


Hi dear reader!
Today I received two packages: one from Models Own, and one I've been dying to get my hands on: the Essence Cute as Hell collection! This collection isn't available in the Netherlands, but is in Germany, so Jeannette of the Swatchaholic was so sweet and send me these! Thank you so much! Of course I had to swatch these immediatly after getting them.



First up is Bad Girl. This is a soft orange, the picture makes it look too bright because it isn't. It's very pretty but I don't think I'll wear this too often since orange isn't my favourite colour. ;)



Then we have Naughty but Nice. It's a pastel yellow and I don't think there's anything naughty about it, it's just a very sweet spring colour. I think it looks like China Glaze Lemon Fizz (that I will receive very soon) and it looks a little like Models Own Lemon Meringue (see Michèle's blog: Lacquerized). I might so some comparing later.



Here you see Not Just Cute, my second favourite polish of the collection. I almost never wear pinks, they're not my colour of choice, but this one is so sweet!



And last, but not least: Date Me! I'm so crazy about purples and this lavender colour makes my mouth water! I know, it looks a bit blue in the picture, but it's really a tad darker and a little more purple toned.

Overall I'm very happy with this collection, I'm all in the pastel trend, love it. I've applied three coats of each (except for Date Me!) and I must say: they apply very nicely. Too bad Essence is only selling this in Germany!

How do you feel about pastels?
Thanks for visiting!

They are just SO lovely on you, I do love your swatches <3 I think I prefer Bad Girl, cause it's a color I don't get to see that often on hands, and it's so pretty <3

Als je gaat ga ik mee, Duitsland is voor mij nu zo ongeveer het nagellak Walhalla met alle P2's. ;)

I know, I almost started hyperventilating when I got them. How sad! :')

Michelle said...

They're definitly spring colours, love it. Also fun to do some skittles on the toes, I think. :)
