Summery Geometry Manicure with Essence

I'm going through a nudey/coral/pale pink nail polish phase for months – they just seem to make my tan even prettier! On some photos it's not that apparent due to poor light (it was really cloudy with showers outside while I took these photos) but regardless – these shades definitely do bring out the best of your tan, make nails elongated, groomed and upright gorgeous! I'll forever be loyal to my blue and turquoise shades and poppy red is something I love to throw in to add diversity. I'm also quite handy with nail stripping tape and that is how this manicure idea was born! You could use one or two nail polishes to be honest, simplify it all and just split one nail into two colors while keeping the rest neutral but hey – I wanted to showcase these beautiful nail polishes as well! Summery Geometry with Essence features nail polishes from different ranges but they work so well together. I've painted all nails except the ring finger with Essence I love Trends The Nudes in 05 Pure Soul shade which is a gorgeous creamy, ivory shade. It makes me think of Essie's Allure or Ballet Slippers – it's semi-sheer and gives an extremely groomed and pretty effect with just one coat. I've applied two coats and got a pretty milky effect. 


Na blogu se sigurno odrazila moja faza kroz koju prolazim a to su lakovi za nokte u nudastim/ mlijecno beige/ blijedo ruzicastim/ koralnim nijansama – naprosto cine da broncani ten djeluje jos ljepse! Na nekim fotografijama to mozda nece biti primjetno u tolikoj mjeri zbog slabog osvjetljenja (dana kada sam fotkala manikir vani je bilo oblacno uz pljuskove kise) ali bez obzira – ove nijanse definitvno izraze ten, cine nokte i prste izduzenim, lijepim i urednim! Uvijek cu biti vjerna plavim i tirkiznim nijansama a mak crvena je nesto cime volim sa vremena na vrijeme zaciniti stvari. Takodjer sam se dosta ispraksala sa trakicama za nail art i kada spojite sve navedeno dobiti cete put kojim sam dosla na ideju da napravim manikir koji sada gledate. Bez problema bi mogli koristiti samo dva laka za slican efekat, ako zelite sve pojednostaviti. Ostavite, na primjer, sve nokte neutralne mlijecne boje a samo na noktu srednjeg prsta trakicom izdijelite noktanu plocu na dvije boje. Licno sam zeljela da koristim Essence novitete pa sam se poigrala sa vise boja. Manikir Ljetna Geometrija uz Essence sacinjavaju lakovi iz razlicitih linija lakova za nokte no mislim da sjajno medjusobno saradjuju. Sve nokte (osim na domalom prstu) sam namazala sa dva sloja Essence I love Trends The Nudes laka u nijansi 05 Pure Soul. Radi se o divno kremastoj nijansi slonovace koja me asocira na lakove poput Essie Allure i Ballet Slippers – polutransparentna je i samo jedan sloj cini nokte tako lijepo sredjenim, kao da ste posjetiti profesionalni salon ljepote. Dva sloja (kakva ja nosim) daju mlijecni efekat.

After finishing the base of my mani, I've applied two more coats of Essence The Gel Nail Polish in 04 Our Sweetest Day on my thumb and pinky finger. This is a shimmery version of Pure Soul – a semi-sheer pale pink/ivory base packed with silver and pink colored shimmer. One coat makes nails look frosted as if you've sprinkled some sugar on top od your cream. Two coats offer a more striking frosty finish. On my ring finger I've applied two coats of Essence The Gel Nail Polish in 25 Prince Charming which is a greenish turquoise shade with the most beautiful duochrome pearl shimmer (depending on the light, it goes from blue to green with a hint of purple). And for the finale, the middle finger (excuse the pun) was adorned with the help of stripping tape (any would do, even those from ebay!) and two shades I'd usually never pair together but I think they turned out nicely with the cream/ivory base, no? After placing my stripping tape, I've applied a single coat of Essence I love Trends The Nudes in 07 Hope For Love shade. It's a classic ‘dirty’ petal pink of a neutral undertone (borderline with cool). Below I've also applied a single coat of Essence The Gel Nail Polish in 11 4 Ever Young which is a juicy berry/red (very reminiscent of Essie Watermelon!). Now, neither of Essence nail polishes last too long on my nails (approx 2-3 days, depending on the shade) but I find that they're very good for nail art and/or if you change up your manicure frequently. 


Nakon sto sam zavrsila sa bazom svog manikira, nanijela sam dva sloja Essence The Gel laka za nokte u nijansi 04 Our Sweetest Day na nokte malog prsta i palca. Ovaj lak bi bio shimmerasta verzija laka Pure Soul – i ovdje je rijec o mlijecnoj ruzicasto/beige bazi ali sa srebrnim i ruzicastim shimmerom. Jedan sloj cini da nokti izgledaju kao da imaju glazuru, kao da je neko preko slaga posuo vanilin secer. Dva sloja pak daju dosta izrazen ‘frosty’ efekat. Na nokat domalog prsta sam nanijela dva sloja Essence The Gel laka za nokte u nijansi 25 Prince Charming koji bi bio tirkizna boja zelenog podtona. Ima jako interesantan duokromni biserno/shimmerasti finish (ovisno o svjetlu, varira od plave do zelene uz dasak ljubicaste). I za finale, nokat na srednjem prstu sam ukrasila uz pomoc nail art trakica (bilo koje ce posluziti, mogu proci i trakice sa ebay-a) i dvije nijanse lakova koje inace ne bih koristila zajedno – a cini mi se da su se ipak lijepo kombinovale. Nakon sto sam pozicionirala trakice za nail art, rub nokta sam presla jednim slojem Essence I love Trends The Nudes lakom za nokte u nijansi 07 Hope For Love. Ovo je klasicna ‘prljavo’ ruzicasta sa dosta neutralnim do hladnijim podtonom. Ispod nje sam izmedju trakica koristila jedan sloj Essence The Gel laka za nokte u nijansi 11 4 Ever Young. Ovaj me lak jako podsjeca na Essie Watermelon (radi se o berry/crvenoj nijansi bez shimmera). Na mojim noktima Essence lakovi ne traju narocito dugo (otprilike 2-3 dana, ovisno od nijanse) ali sam primjetila da su jako zgodni za nail art. Vjerujem da bi vam odgovarali i ako ste inace osoba koja cesto mijenja manikir.
