Essence Blue Addicted

Today I want to share my swatch for Essence Blue Addicted, which was one of my first Essence polishes. I've read this is a dupe for Deborah Lippman Across The Universe, a polish that didn't spark my interest at all before, but once I put it on my nails... swoon!

Blue Addicted is dark blue/navy blue jelly packed with medium silver and green hexagonal glitter plus small silver glitter.

In my swatches I layered one coat of Blue Addicted over China Glaze Blue Year's Eve, a deep blue glassfleck, which turned up to be a perfect base for Blue Addicted, even if it lightened it up a bit.

This polish was very easy to apply, it was packed with glitter so I didn't have to juggle around to get them on my nails. I loved how the glitters look to be suspended on the jelly base. Blue Addicted is part of the Color & Go line of Essence, and retails for roughly $3 at my local store.

Thanks for reading!

Hola chicas! Hoy les quiero mostrar mi primer esmalte Essence, se llama "Blue Addicted" y he leído que es un dupe de "Across the Universe" de Deborah Lippmann, al principio no me llamó mucho la atención, me lo traje más que nada por curiosidad, pero una vez que lo puse en mis uñas... me encantó!

"Blue Addicted" es un esmalte azul oscuro, casi azul marino, jelly (translúcido) cargado de glitters hexagonales plateados y verdes, además de microglitter plateado.

En mis fotos usé una capa de Blue Addicted sobre dos de Blue Year's Eve, de China Glaze, que es un glassfleck azul muy intenso. Es la base perfecta para Blue Addicted ya que lo aclaró un poco y se pueden ver todos los glitters.

Este esmalte fue muy fácil de aplicar, como estaba cargado de glitter no tuve que hacer malabares con la brocha para que quedaran en la uña. Me encanta como parece que los glitters estuvieran flotando en el color.

Blue Addicted es parte de la línea Colour & Go de Essence y en Chile lo encuentras en tiendas DBS a CLP$1.690

Espero les haya gustado, gracias por leer!
