Essence It's Hot Stuff

Thank you everyone for your kind wishes. I'm feeling a lot better :-)

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). It's a thermal but I don't think the change is really that dramatic! I found in the first few photos I was quite warm and it was hard to capture the original colour. You can make out the two colours in some of the photos though. I wish it had a better effect! Lasted okay.

      It really is too subtle. Hehe I guess it does look squishy! :-)

  9. Glad to hear you're feeling better! :) I can see the two colors but it's not as dramatic a change as I've seen with other polishes... Not as subtle as the thermals that I bought though!

  17. Perhaps the thermal pigments are too old? I have heard that they wear out over time :)

  18. Essence is sold in Spain and I have had things of the brand but not that colour. Lots of hugs. Although I have only seen your nails I am almost sure that you are one of the most beautiful women that I will ever know in this life, because you are wonderful inside and you take care of your nails like nobody else, that is sexy as well :)
