NOTD: Essence Rock My World

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

It has been a while since I got any new Essence products. The brand has recently updated the shelf at Shoppers with a number of products marked as "New". I certainly shop happy :)

Let's bring the brand back to the NOTD scene today with Rock My World, a new permanent shade from the Galaxy Flakes effect line.

Essence defines this effect, with multiple flakes, gives the nails a cook and skillful shine, which is a step up from their Sand effect line. I would say it is the iridescent version of Zoya Pixie Dusts.

See that iridescence I mentioned here?

This is 2 coats of Rock My World without base or top coat, for swatching purpose, to preserve the texture and opacity of the shade.

To wear it though, I would suggest a base colour to avoid sheer spots, which are more visible in pictures than IRL. I love the colour and finish so much that sheerness does not bother me at all.

I hope Essence brings more Galaxy Flakes to Canada, especially warmer and darker tones, as I would buy them all. The $3.49 price tag helps too!

  1. I haven't seen any new Galaxy Flakes polishes down here either. I wish I could pop over to Europe once a month just to browse all of their awesome essence displays!
