I hope you're having a great weekend so far! Here it is still pretty cold so I spent most of it snuggled up in blankets with a hot cup of tea on the couch. This cold weather is also messing with my cuticles. They've been pretty dry lately and I am moisturizing like crazy - my colleagues are already laughing at me because I reach for my hand lotion a dozen times a day ;) Speaking of hand care: Would my fellow readers be interested in a series about the products I use?! Let me know via the comments please!
Today I have for you the first polish of the latest Essence Limited Edition called Crazy Good Times. This refers to the carnival season coming up here and so this collection carries lots of rather crazy stuff like fake lashes, body tattoo stamps or body glitter as well as nailpolishes in eye-catching colors. And so is Candyction, a vibrant neon flakie polish!
Sorry for the picture spam ;) This one was a bit hard to capture right as it was freaking out my camera as all neons usually do. Finally I can say I like Candyction in the bottle. It is a crazy vibrant color and I am a sucker for multichrome flakies. Yet I did not really love this on my nails and I can't see myself wearing this in everyday life. It is however very suitable for carnival and parties I think. On other blogs I have seen this one layered over black or red polishes and I want to try that. Maybe the golden-ish flakies will stand out more when one applies only one coat over a darker base polish.
The Essence Crazy Good Times Limited Edition was supposed to be available in German drugstores throughout February 2012. However I could only find one display in one local drugstore (Rossmann) in the end of January and two of the colors where sold out already. Too bad the Essence LE displays are rather small and carry only 4 bottles of each polish :( I hope some more displays will show up in other drugstores this month! 8ml retail for 1,79€.
Thanks for reading, enjoy your Sunday!
