For those of you who are regular readers of Strikeapose you will know that in the last few weeks I shared a rather exciting collaboration with essence cosmetics. You can read about the announcement of launching my own palette with essence cosmetics as well as a the full write ups, including swatches and reviews of my own palette as well as Diana’s, Serena’s and Palmira’s.

Also in the collection are 4 nail polishes, the 4 were designed by each blogger to work well alongside their palette.

01 Be Happy + Smile is Diana’s shade, linking with the essence cosmetics touch up to go one for all palette. Subtle and sweet this mild pink shimmer has a satin effect, semi matte finish. A perfectly pretty pale.

The only metallic in the nail polish collection is Palmira’s, 02 Hello Beautiful! The tones work well with her eye palette, Vintage Rose. A classy colour for day or evening wear, although you can see from my pictures I struggled with streaking.

My own nail polish is shade 03 All Eyes on Me. The name is linked with the on screen, Hollywood theme that ran in my palette shape & shadows shade names.

The nail varnish has a matte effect making it a subtle grey, cool toned nude. I find it very high coverage, only needing one coat.

Lastly Serena’s polish add’s a pop of colour to the collection. Chosen to work perfectly with glowing skin or a lovely tan this colour works wonderfully with her essence cosmetics the glow must go on bronzing & highlighting palette.

    These look lovely, I love the accent nail you have done. I hope you don’t mind me asking but are your nails natural or falsies? If they are natural how do you get such a uniform shape to them all? Do you go for regular manicures or take care of them yourself? If falsies which glue do you use and how long do they stay on for? Thanks xxx

  • These look fab!, I’m loving the metallic one!
