Featuring the top coat I hate more than anything, this is Essence Let’s Get Lost with a bonus appearance from Black Sheep Lacquer Vision in Blue!
This is one of those DAVIDsTEA teals I can’t resist, and actually the first Essence polish I ever tried. It’s lovely! They make such great quality and it’s only about $2 which is awesome. The bottles are smaller (like Julep) but I’m rarely finishing polish anyway, and at least they don’t have an annoying “mini” brush. Overall, I was super impressed and happy with Essence Let’s Get Lost.
The formula on Essence Let’s Get Lost was great, smooth and opaque, I ended up doing two coats. All the weird bubbling and damages you see are due to a Wet N Wild top coat that is the bane of my existence. I’ve managed to get through a decent amount of the bottle, but I want nothing more than to throw it out. I just hate throwing things out that aren’t empty! Finish faster, evil top coat.
Essence Let’s Get Lost probably isn’t the most unique colour in my collection, but it applies nicely, is glossy and lovely (why did I even put the evil top coat on in the first place?) and does a great job resisting chips, so I’m happy to hold onto it.
In fact, my major problem with Essence Let’s Get Lost is that it did such a good job not chipping that I was stuck with it despite the horrible damages done by my top coat, hence Black Sheep Lacquer Vision in Blue came to the rescue.
I’ve featured Black Sheep Lacquer Vision in Blue before (review here) but here’s a bonus shot of it over Essence Let’s Get Lost, which is actually how I wore it first. I think it looks so pretty together, the billion types of glitter are gorgeous but don’t overwhelm even when I put it over every nail. Also does a great job of covering up the blemishes! Like concealer for my nails.
What do you think of Essence Let’s Get Lost? Do you have a similar teal you prefer?
Also, what’s your favourite top coat? I’ve fallen in love with another one, but I’ll save that love fest for another day!
