Essence Me and My Ice Cream nail polish swatches

Yesterday I showed you the Essence Me and My Ice Cream nail sticker with the beads on it - which is a really excellent little product. Today I have swatches of three of the four polishes from the collection.  I'll talk about the application and formula at the end of the swatches.

Always on my mint - a very very pale mint green with a silvery shimmer. All of these are very sheer

Ben and Cherries- a pale pink with a silver shimmer.

Icylicious - a light peach with a silver shimmer.

There is one more in the collection - Ice Ice Baby which is a pale lilac shade.  

All these shades are very pale, only just off white really and the formula was sheer.  They all needed four coats for opacity.  I also found the brush really stiff, which meant it dragged through the polish and would leave brush dents as I wiped.  But after four coats and a coat of Essence Gel Look top coat, these were super glossy and shimmery. 

The Essence Me and My Ice Cream collection will be available exclusively at Priceline stores in October/November..

Products provided for review.
