Day 5 - Blue - Essence Underwater

For day 5 of the challenge, I chose a blue from Essence called Underwater. In the bottle is has a gorgeous micro-glitter which I was so excited about. It applied easily in 2 coats and overall I'm really happy with the color. I did have the issue of cleanup... if any of the polish got on the cuticles it was difficult to remove even with pure acetone, but I think this is common with a lot of dark colors. Also the glitter didn't transfer to the nails as I would have hoped, it showed up as random glitter specks instead of what is seen in the bottle.

Here it is using two coats + a topcoat in partial sun...

In the shade...

This one shows the micro-glitter in the bottle (click to zoom in), but as you can see not much of it transferred to the nail...

I had a plan for nail art, but ran out of time, so I'll try to do it tonight and show you tomorrow... :D

  1. It's a really pretty colour, but I was a bit dissapointed too that glitter isn't visible on the nails.

  2. Thanks! I like this color a lot even though the glitter hides :)
