This autumn a lot of nail polish brands have chosen glitter finishes, foil finishes and shimmer finishes for their collections. You have Zoya with two collections Wicked (the fall collection), Fire&Ice (the winter collection), Orly Cosmic Fx, Orly Tis The Season 2010 Holiday, China Glaze with their Vintage Vixen, China Glaze 2010 Holiday collection etc. Sure, there’s been some cremes too, but the glittering, the shimmering and the sparkling ones have been the nail polishes everyone was talking about.
After all the glitters, the shimmers and the foils that I’ve been wearing the last couple of weeks, I needed a crème, a nude one, so I’ve chosen Essie Body Language. Last time I was wearing Essie’s Body Language was last spring, and I remember I liked it so much I didn’t want to remove it from the nails for about a week (now, that’s a maximum amount of time for me). The color is very pretty if you are into nudes. You have a milky surface, not quite white, with a touch of pink and gray. But somehow this time the Body Language interacted with my base polish, and I got all those bubbles which my top coat (China Glaze Fast Forward) took care of and now there are a lot of tiny holes in the nail polish!! I think I should have used Essie’s 3 Way Glaze as a base, not the one I use now (Orly’s Nailtrition)! I’ll try to remember this for the next time I use Essie’s Body Language.
I wanted to take the pictures in the daylight but by the time I got home from work, there was no daylight left. So, here it is, Essie’s Body Language photographed at night!
