Essie Decadent Dish

I’ve found a very interesting Essie nail polish back in October which I think is horribly underappreciated. If you love your burgundy colors throughout autumn and winter than you’ll love Essie Decadent Dish. There’s a funny story behind the purchase of this one as I actually used the money I won gambling on slot machines to treat myself with this stunner. I know – gambling, slot machines – livin’ on the dark side. I find that entire gambling thing pretty boring but at the time I had received a voucher to try my luck and I wasn’t disappointed as I ended up getting a color I now adore. Essie has the most interesting shade names and since I’m a foodie, I got the reference in a food kinda way. The term “decadent” is often used to describe food that is over-indulgent and rich in flavor; it is usually associated with food that is high in calories and therefore a “guilty pleasure”. Foods that may be described as “decadent” include: chocolate, caviar, wine, champagne, lobster, canapes and foie gras. Any type of food that is high in calories and rich in taste can be described as decadent. Well, I definitely think that the name suits the shade as it’s yummy and with no problem whatsoever can be described as a guilty pleasure.

Pocetkom mjeseca oktobra sam pronasla veoma interesantan Essie lak za nokte za koji mislim da je nepravedno podcijenjen. Ukoliko inace volite nositi lakove boje crnog vina tokom jeseni i zime na svojim noktima, onda cete se zaljubiti i u Essie Decadent Dish (17,85KM u odabranim dm-ovim kada je u pitanju BiH). Pozadina price kako sam uopste kupila ovaj lak je prilicno neobicna – kupila sam ga novcem koji sam ‘zaradila’ na igrama na srecu, tacnije na slot aparatima (znate one vockice koje se trebaju poredati na ekranu). Znam, znam – kockanje, slot aparati – zivim opasno. Iskreno, uvijek sam te igre na srecu a posebno kladionice smatrala jako dosadnim i bespotrebnim no bila sam u prilici da imam vaucer za te igre na srecu pa sam ih vise iz zabave iskoristila nego sto sam istinski drzala fige da nesto i osvojim. Ne mogu reci da sam bila lose srece jer su mi vauceri ipak priskrbili ovaj krasni lak. Essie inace daje interesantne nazive svojim nijansama a posto sam strastveni ljubitelj hrane, naziv ove nijanse sam protumacila u tom kontekstu. Rijec ‘dekadentno’ se u kulinarskom smislu koristi za opis gurmanske hrane koja je izrazito bogatog ukusa. Cesto se radi o visokokaloricnoj hrani poslije cijeg uzivanja nerijetko osjecamo krivicu (tzv.guilty pleasure). Tu se ubrajaju cokolada, kavijar, sampanjac, jastog, kanapei te foie gras. U sustini se svaka visokokaloricna hrana koja je bogatog okusa moze nazvati dekadentnom. U svakom slucaju, cini mi se da je nijansa laka sa fotki zasluzeno dobila svoj naziv.

Essie says: “Spice up your wardrobe with this daring dark brown polish with a hint of bronze shimmer. This manicure is a feast for the eyes”. I couldn’t agree more but I did struggle to notice the bronze shimmer or anything brown in this shade of polish at first as it looks similar to Essie’s Dive Bar which is a black base with blue/green micro shimmer that gives a metallic finish. I thought that Decadent Dish is a black base with burgundy metallic micro shimmer but under certain light, it does appear chocolatey brown and rich. It’s just a lovely, unique shade that totally filled any existing gaps in my burgundy polish collection. All those wine shades are mostly of a creme or eventually high-shine jelly finish so a metallic specimen adds a touch of excitement. It’s of a wonderful formula, you could get away with just one coat but the second one adds dimension. It dries fast and lasts at least five days on my nails – without a top coat. Highly recommend as Essie nail polishes aren’t just eye candy – they’re DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free.

Essie kaze: “Zacinite odjevnu kombinaciju sam ovim smjelim tamno smedjim lakom za nokte koji sadrzi dasak bronzanog shimmera. Ovaj manikir je festa za oci”. Apsolutno se slazem da je divan prizor ali stvarno nisam mogla uociti taj bronzani shimmer te uopsteno smedje primjese. Licno sam ga dozivjela dosta slicnim sa Essie Dive Bar lakom koji je crne baze i gusto je prozet plavo/zelenim skarabej shimmerom koji pruza metalik odsjaj. Mislila sam da je i Decadent Dish crna baza koja je obogacena finim mikro shimmerom boje crnog vina no pod odredjenim svjetlom ovaj lak stvarno se doima cokoladno smedjim. Prilicno je jedinstven, unikatan i lijepo je upotpunio moju kolekciju jesensko-zimskih lakova boje vina jer vecina njih je creme ili jelly finisa visokog sjaja. Metalik varijanta je dosta zanimljiva. Krasne je formulacije. Bio bi cak jedan sloj sasvim dovoljan ali sa drugim slojem mi dobije neku bogatiju, ljepsu dimenziju. Brzo se susi i traje dugo – barem pet dana bez nadlaka na mojim noktima. Toplo preporucujem ovog essica  ali i uopsteno Essie lakove koji ne samo da su lijepi na oko – takodjer ne sadrze sporni DBP, toluen niti formaldehide.
