Essence Make it Golden Nail Polish - Review

Essence Make it Golden Nail Polish is another shade I picked up while on holiday,
I'm a sucker for a chunky glitter polish especially those that can be layered over other shades
and for just over a euro there was no way I was leaving this little beauty behind!

Make it Golden is constructed of large and small chunky bright gold glitter flecks
suspended within a transparent jelly polish, I say transparent which is partly true but it also features
tiny flecks of golden shimmer that don't alter the shade of any polish underneath as they are so subtle.
Make it Golden on it's own does take around five coats to become fully opaque which is time consuming
but achievable should you wish.

I have layered it over Essie Off the Shoulder.

Although a glitter polish this is not at all gritty but feels really smooth on the nails,
it applies fairly well but for best results I do recommend dabbing the polish on for the best glitter effect.
The brush is a good size for the small bottle but the one downside in my opinion is that it does take
quite a while to dry...I have no patience!

Sadly Essence is not readily available within the UK but you can pick it up on eBay etc
or check out Essence's web site for more information - link.

Nail Polish Disclaimer - I no longer comment on the wear time as we all apply polishes differently (top/base coats etc) and as I change my polish almost daily sometimes several times a day due to swatching purposes I do not feel that I can fairly comment on wear time.

  1. I own and love this nail polish! Have you tried using it on its own? It took 3 coats for a whole glitter effect on my nails and it looked fab (although a bit difficult to remove I have to admit).

    1. I did but it took 5 coats until I was happy haha!

  2. I love glitter as a topcoat on colour, this works really well together
