Essence Aquatix Collection

{Purchased By Me}

I was lucky enough to have a friend in a Facebook group who was able to help me snag the Essence Aquatix collection. The Essence Limited Edition collections have been knocking it out of the park lately and this collection is no exception. I’m thrilled with it and was oooohing and aaaaahing at every stroke!

Essence Under Water Love

Under Water Love is one of the two textured polishes in the collection. This has the traditional texture finish but this is also a duochrome! It shifts from teal to dark blue. It’s absolutely amazing. It’s a little thick so you’ll want to try to use thin coats.

Essence Aquatix Bay

Aquatix Bay is the second texture in the collection. This one is a very, very fine texture. In facy, if I didn’t know it was supposed to be a texture, I might have just thought the shimmers were a little rough. This one really does look like the Caribbean Sea!

Essence Mermaid’s Secret

Mermaid’s Secret is a blueish purple with firey light blue shimmers. Here is how my husband described it, “That looks like a jelly hologlam flakie”. See? He totally knows what he’s talking about, right?

Essence Finding Dori

Finding Dori is a metallic duochrome. This one has some serious swoon factor. It’s a touch darker and more teal in real life. It shifts from a greenish hue to to a dark teal. This is probably the #1 must-have in this collection. It competes well with the duochrome indies on the market today! And it’s only a few dollars a pop!

Essence Under the Sea

Under the Sea is a light blue holo. I really love this one. It’s a scattered holo that you will see best in sunlight. This one reminds me of the sun reflecting off the ocean water on a clear day.

Essence Pearls are a Girl’s Best Friend

Pearls are a Girl’s Best Friend is the least impressive of the bunch. I like it, but I definitely don’t love it. I needed three coats for this one and it’s still quite sheer. I used this as a base for some upcoming nail art and I like it better in that post. If you’re going to skip any of the polishes in this collection, it should probably be this one.

So what do you think? Will you be hunting down any of the polishes from this glorious collection?
