Essence Dare To Kiss




This is easy to use, easy to apply and various drying times. Let me explain....1 thick coat takes ages to dry - I painted this on my right hand (about 12 minutes). 2 thin coats dries a lot quicker - left hand (about 3 minutes a coat). The brush is quite thick but found it okay with my nails. I'm not sure about the colour...I'm not really into nudes....but I do love the finish! Husband was like why did you buy it when it's not your colour!!!! MEN! ;-) Lasted really well.

Rating
Easy to use  = 8/10

Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2 on left in photos
Finish = satin
Removal = easy
Overall = 8/10
Purchased from = Wilkos

My Personal Rating = 6/10 :-) Good quality, just not my colour!

  1. I sometimes wear nudes and this is a very pretty shade! I also like the finish :)
    Tell your husband it's like a football match: you suspect who'll win, yet it may happen another way :D

    2. Oh and today it happened that I was wearing nail polish in a hue I usually don't like and I like it because of a great finish :)

  3. The finish is really nice, but frankly speaking, that's not my colour at all.

    Kind regards,

  5. When my husband blames me because I have too many nail polishes or because I complain about a colour that doesn't look nice on me, I always remember him the huge quantity of Wii games he has, and the large number that he has played for one day or two only because he doesn't like them. :D

    1. My husband does moan about me having too much but he does tolerate it! It is the same thing isn't it! At least we actually try them and wear them! But your husband has not finished those games.... ;-)

  6. It's very elegant but if it's not your colour it's better to try another. xoxo

  9. LOL Men indeed - they don't understand why we buy colors we don't like just because of a finish - or because of the blog :D
    This color is the same as the silky vintage ladies underwear ;)

  11. I agree with you about the color...But the finish is awesome *__*
    And men...They just can't understand, my husband often tells me "why buying all those polishes, you'll never use them all up" :D
    I'll never tell him how many I own ^__^

  13. it truely looks like satin. i love it. i'd love to wear this style. what's the difference with pearly and shimmery tho?

    ReplyDelete

    1. It really does :-) Glad you do!

      Pearly is shiny and often iridescent and like pearls!
      Shimmery is like iridescent - it has base colour and a shimmer that is often a different colour. Like a pink with a blue shimmer. :-)

  15. I think its a shame your undecided about the colour, I quite like it! I have new york city call from the satin collection and I can agree with you about the finish, I love how soft and delicate they look! I'd actually think about picking this one up if I get the chance to! xx

  16. haha "why did you buy it if it's not your color?" if it was your color then it would be "don't you already have that color??" you can't win! I'm usually wearing blue or purple but i love a good nude sometimes :) I really like the finish on this one too
