Guest Post by Nails and Noms: Essence - I Like

Please enjoy this guest post by my girl Rie from Nails and Noms!

Hello Everyone!

I was quite surprised and flattered when Kellie contacted me asking if I could do a guest post for her blog this week! Kellie's site was one of the reasons my polish obsession exploded, which eventually led to me creating my very own blog. :-D I racked my brain (and my polish collection) trying to figure out what I could share with you all and quickly decided on this lovely polish by Essence (a German cosmetic brand) that my friend Dana from Ohio sent me. All swatches for this one are with Seche Vite top coat and Sally Hansen Nail Quencher base coat.

I Like I Like 
I Like is a beautiful seafoam green polish that's filled with subtle ice blue and light green shimmer. The brush on this one is quite wide with fat bristles that hold a lot of polish, so I had to be a little more careful with application to avoid overloading the brush. That being said, the formula was very smooth, self leveling, and highly pigmented. I only needed two coats. :-) I Like 
Here's a macro shot so you can see the delicate shimmer on this one, it's so pretty! :-D I Like (with flash) I Like 
And here's two shots of I Like with my camera flash, doing its best impersonation of the sun. I work midnights so this is the closest to the real thing as we're gonna get. ;-)

Final Thoughts:

Pardon my redundancy here, but I really like I Like... A lot. :-D With the wide brush I was able to cover my entire nail in one stroke, and pale greens like this make me weak in the knees. :-) I Like is part of the Blossoms Etc... Collection released by Essence this past April. They are perfect colors for the spring, but I'll probably wear this one year round because I love it so much. My friend Dana found them at her local Ulta store, but I hear they are selling out quickly so if you want I Like or any of the other colors I suggest you act fast!

Purchase Info:

I believe the only place to find the Blossom Etc... Collection in the US is at your local Ulta store, they retail at $1.99 per bottle of polish. I hope you all enjoyed this post! ^_^ - Rie
