Adorned Nails: Essence Object of Desire


Let’s have some bright and happy nails from a cheap and cheerful brand this week! This is from the German brand, Essence. You’ve heard about Essence before from that Nail Art Stampy Set that I got earlier.

This is Multi Dimension 3 in 1 nail polish in shade No. 44, Object of Desire. It’s an attention-seeking flamingo pinky coral colour with a hint of gloss. It says on the bottle “with XXXL shine”. I see some shine, but I think triple-XL is an exaggeration.

Application was problem-free. Imperfect strokes? They’ll disappear. Pictured here is with two coats, taken indoors in daylight. Not bad for a nail polish that cost less than €2! I believe this colour has been discontinued as I don’t see it in the stores anymore and neither is it on the Essence website.

I’m keeping it simple. I won’t torture some of you with images of my sub-standard nail art stamping efforts this time. Maybe next week.......

Your nail art stamping hasn't been sub-standard so I have no clue what you're talking about! :) I love that this polish is cheap and effective. It's a shame the color's no longer being sold. Good thing you snagged yourself a bottle!

I love the simplicity of your skincare routine. As long as it doesn't break me out is an important point for me too! ;)

I love coral shades. They're my favorite lipstick shades. I don't think I can pull it off though once I sport a coral shade nail color. It looks good on you though.

Lots of love,

I'm so excited to see the nail art stamping, I'll watch out for it ;).

I'm impress with this nail polish, you used only two coats yet it still looks pigmented, lovely on your hands ^_^

I agree that it's not ultra shiny but for that price, it's a good buy! I love the colour though...looks sweet!

Thank you! This is a nice shade but I think, in person, it looks even brighter. :)

@gildedangel
Bright coral pinks can be quite difficult to resist. :)

@tris1978ton
Thanks! :)

@Eli
Heh heh! It is a cute shade. :)

@Shop N' Chomp
Yeah, for the price, it's pretty good quality! :D

@Golden
Thank you! I think it's just a matter of getting used to seeing this colour on your nails. I'm sure it would look fab on you! :)

@twinsouls888
I'm glad you like this colour. As for the stamping for my next nail post, it may or may not be with this shade. We'll have to wait and see! ;)

@bowsnhearts
I must say that I'm quite impressed with the quality of this nail polish. It has held up pretty well! :)

@Carine
Yes, ELF! I'm wondering now if it would be Fire Coral or Hot Pink or something in between. :)

@Cynthia
I can see why it's your favourite colour. It's such a pretty shade. :)

@Romika
Thank you! I like this colour. It cheers me up everytime I look at it. :)

@Danielle
Good luck in your quest for Essence nail polishes there. You could also try e(vil)Bay. :D

Gosh, thank you for your very encouraging words about the stamping. Kind words like these give me the motivation to keep practising! Heh heh!

Daniela said...

Really nice shade. I've heard about essence before but I dont seem to find it anywhere and I know they sell in portugal.

@Daniela
Thanks! I hope you'll be able to track Essence down eventually. :)

Natalie Nguyen said...

Wow really pretty! It's great when the nail polish outcome is the same colour as the bottle shows!

witoxicity said...

@Natalie
Ha ha, yes, no surprises there with the colour on the nails matching what you see in the bottle. :)

I am on the hunt for the perfect flamingo pink...is this really it? Sad it's discontinued. I'll keep looking!

@~Elizabeth aka Lacquered Lizard
Good luck on your quest! Yes, it is sad that this colour has been discontinued. I'll see if I can show another image of my nails with this shade and then you will be able to see the flamingo pink better. :)
