This is a post for my good friend and secret make-up supplier H. – it is her favourite (red) nail polish!
at least she said so….
Anyhow. This polish, from the essence fairy tale collection, is not only unavailable, but also super old. The thing with essence polishes is, that once they’re out of stock, they aren’t really HTF or VHTF, they’re NTF (not to find), period.Unless, there is a blogsale or a beauty blogger fleamarket, which is also where I snatched up this baby. Yes, I called this polish baby.
I used two coats of Once Upon A Time. It is gorgeous. Glassfleck red, super vibrant, great depth, wonderful coverage, and the shine! Look how it shines! And sparkles! H., you really have very good taste. I wish a little bit I hadn’t sent this to you – but you love it even more, right?

I wish essence would make more such polishes. I really do. However, I’m lucky to have some Zoya glassflecks; and while I don’t have one exactly the same colour, I can, for H.’s sake, live without Once Upon A Time. Can you?
