Swatches - Essence ~ Party Princess, Studio M - Volcanic

I was originally just going to swatch Volcanic by Studio M but I smudged my middle finger and added the glitter from Essence on top to avoid re-doing it. So it's swatches of both, but the Essence is on my middle fingers only.

I'm soooo excited about this color. Holy moly, is it bright! It's a neon orange pink, mostly a pink-ish color, with very unique undertones that really come out in low light and with the flash on a camera. It's GORGEOUS. I didn't realize how pretty it was. I think I got a bad bottle though cause it looks a bit funky and it applied pretty crappy. (Again, my other Studio M's aren't like that I think someone may have opened it in store. -_-)

Volcanic turned out to be a matte jelly like finish. Definetley matte at the very least.

The Essence is so-so. Don't love it, don't hate it. At least it distracted from the smudges. I'd like to try it over darker colors.

I realize these are more summer nails but I wasn't able to buy any new polish for the past 4 months or so, and was really wanting some neons. Definetley summer nails, though!

Dang. My nails have never been this long. By now
they would be driving me crazy. (Usually!)
You can kind of see the matte finish here a little even though
I used a top coat.
