LE series: Essence Road trip nail polishes

By Just Ajda - 1.8.14

Some time ago I saw the display for Essence Road trip limited edition and here's what I took:

Here's what Essence says about this TE:


Essence is packing its bags to spread the fun feeling of the legendary Route 66. Every girl is sure to love the practical duo and mini products that are coming along for the ride. In addition to cool duo pieces like eyeshadow & eyeliner and blush & highlighter, the highlight products include the allround balm and dry shampoo – absolutely essential beauty tools when you’re on the go. This summery trend edition is perfectly complemented by the travel bag, which offers lots of room for anything you might need on your beauty journey. 

There are four polishes in this LE, each has a different finish. You have leather effect, asphalt effect, gasoline effect and thermo effect.


And what Essence says about nail polishes:
Four different colors are ready to hit the road with four different effects: leather, asphalt, gasoline and thermo! For unique street styles!


I bought three polishes of the four, asphalt effect, gasoline effect and thermo effect.
THE BRUSH of these
THE APPLICATION/FORMULA is different on each polishes. I had the least problems with asphalt effect(2 coats, easy app, normal drying time), and the ost with thermo effect(awful application, streaky, 3coats). Gasoline effect was somewhere inbetween(a little streaky, 2 coats)

THE COLOUR of this one is to die for! An off-white base with gold/bronze glitters different sizes that dry gritty.

THE COLOUR of this one is another stunner. Duochrome effect, teal with blue/purple shifting. I guess it isn't all that unique, but it is pretty anyway.

THE COLOUR of this one is... not my cup of tea. In normal(hotter) temperature is this weird orange/nude/peachy colour, that I really don't like. When cold it turns into light brown, but the difference is very subtle, as you can see on the photos. All in all, I really don't like it.

FINAL VERDICT:
This limited edition is okay. I'd prefer different thermo effect, but otherwise the idea is great. And I love one of the polishes(On the road again). I really like the idea of limited editions with different finishes.

  2. I saw them in the internet last night, and I was very curious to see how they look.
    My personal fav is the last one. (I have no termo polishes yet, so I hope this collection will arrive soon in my country).

    Nice review.
