S-he Stylezone - 471 plus essence Special Effect Topper

After 4 days I have finally taken my summery gradient mani off. It's been a long time since I have worn a mani for any length of time but I particularly enjoyed wearing this gradient and there was hardly any tip wear. I wonder if this was due to do with the new Essie ridge filling base coat and lack of Seche Vite top coat?

Today I want to show you another two of the polishes sent to me by Mateja...
S-he Stylezone - 471 is a very pale blue foil which applies wonderfully and only requires two coats. I'm not the biggest fan of foils but this one is quite nice but I can't put my finger on why. May be it's because it's not too silvery? I remember Mateja on her blog putting a glitter over this foil so I decided to paint a layer of the Essence Special Effect Topper she also sent me which contains a mix of blue and peachy iridescent hex glitter is different sizes in a clear base. The colours remind me a little of Deborah Lippmann's Glitter In The Air, however, on the nail combined with the foil it reminds me of Mermaid's Dream but obviously lacking the green. Don't see it? Never mind! This glitter like other glitters requires some strategic dabbing but overall a lovely topper that dries well and would look great over so many colours. Do you have these polishes?

Do you have any suggestions what other polishes I could layer the glitter over?
*off to file my nails they're getting a bit long!


  1. What a lovely combination! I have that Special Effect Topper too, but I haven't found a way to use it. This looks very nice =) xx

  2. Oooh, such a pretty combo!!

  3. Oh, so pretty! I like the little bits of gold that are mixed in with the blue, it reminds me of fish scales.

  4. I love this combo!!!
    I would love to see the glitter over some pastel colours.

  5. It looks gorgeous with that glitter on top!

  6. Thank you ladies for your comments x

  7. I just bought that Essence polish and can't wait to try it over silver now that I've seen this!
