Adorned Nails: Essence Object of Desire Re-desired


Yes, you’ve seen this nail polish here before but the truth is, I was suffering from a very nasty headache when I was preparing for that post back then. That headache lasted three long days and after the ordeal, I thought that I could have done a better job with the photos.

Anyway, last week, I decided to paint my nails with Object of Desire again and try some stamping (which I didn’t do previously) using the Essence Nail Art Stampy Set: 01 Be Creative and the white nail polish from the Bourjois French Manicure Kit.

With a clearer head and a whatever-goes frame of mind (as I was actually not planning to show this here), I started stamping.

I was pleased with the results. So pleased that I decided to take a photo of it and document it here. This is, after all, part of the journey of my beauty awakening! I must let you know that the nail polish is more colour-true in this photo.


I could die happy and contented now.

I'm really happy that I have the same set, would love to try this myself :)

I got some essence nail polish as well today in fatal and groovy, but seems I need object of desire as well! :) It was my first time trying them out, and I'm quite happy so far (I just love the shine!)

So cute! Echt zo leuk met de bloemetjes! Ook een heel mooi kleurtje. Zet het even op mijn wenslijst.

En zo super irritant he als je hoofdpijn hebt...blehhh. IK heb zo nu en dan last van migraine...ook zo gezellig, maar dat komt meestal doordat ik wat verkeerds heb gegeten, waardoor ik een allergische migraine aanval krijg..:(

Arie said...

Sorry to hear about that bad headache :(.

@susies1955
Thanks so much, Susie! :D

@Beauty Vibes
I got a couple more myself too! Anyway, I think you can also try this with the Catrice colours that you have. I'm sure it would work as well. :)

@Nails 4 Stars
Dank je! Ja, best leuk hè wat je kan doen met producten die niet zo duur zijn. Lekker fleurig! :D

Dat is zeker niet leuk dat je migraine krijgt van eten. Hopelijk hoef je niet alle lekkere dingen te laten staan.

@Arie
Thank you for your kind words. Headaches and blogging sure don't go hand-in-hand! I'm glad this mani is to your liking. :)

@Mz. More
Heh heh! Yes, you're right. Practice and a relaxed attitude! :D

@Miss Tapia
I'm happy to hear that! :D

@Lily nail
Thanks! :)

@Lara
Thank you, Lara. You're very kind. One does feel cheered up looking at this happy colour. :D

@Danielle
Thanks so much, Danielle. I'm very pleased that you love this err...revised one. ;D I do feel better now as I felt that I didn't do the colour enough justice the last time. :)

So cute! How long does it take to do you nails usually? I'm wondering because it takes me quite long even though it's never as fancy as yours!

twinsouls888 said...

I love it, lovely stamping as always :)

Dina (XYYan) said...

Very pretty! i want to try me some Konads too :D

Shop N' Chomp said...

Haha...you like it that much huh? I can see why. It's so pretty! =D Sorry to hear about your nasty headache though, sweets. =\

Rebecca said...

I must get more Essence. Only one polish is not enough.

@Babybubblz
I'm not a pro, so I do take quite a while to do my nails too. It also sometimes depends on the polish and the drying time. This one probably took about an hour in total (and I did other things while waiting for each coat to dry). :)

@twinsouls888
Thank you, my dear! :)

@Dina
Thanks! And yes, you should give stamping a try! I'm sure you'll love it. :D

@Shop N' Chomp
Thanks for your kind words. I appreciate it very much. As for the nails, I felt that this was a first big step forward for me since I started trying my hand at stamping. :D

@Rebecca
Heh heh! You're so right. One bottle wouldn't be enough! :D

@Carine
It's no party for sure! :P

Golden said...

I love that nail polish. I don't know how nail stamping works (coz I haven't seen one) but I will say you did a good job at decorating your nails. :)

Lots of love,

@Golden
Thank you, my dear. I'm so glad you like this. You should give stamping a try one of these days. It's fun (and addictive!). :D
