Essence "Red Ahead" - swatch & manis!

Hey beauties!

So my Sugar Skulls won Essence's #expressyouressence contest! How awesome! In honour of Essence, I want to show you one of their new polishes: "Red Ahead". 

I had really thought is was brown, and I guess it is a really deep maroon. Gorgeous. 
Here it is.

So many opportunities for such a pretty polish!

I did my fall nails for the Twinsie Thursday post swap with them. I also used it on two friends. One classy and one cute mani. Let's start with the cute! 

I based it on a design by Divine Caroline. I just used different colours. The red is also Essence, I forgot which one. I just used a nail art brush and a bobby pin (for I had forgotten my dotting tool). Now for the classy, I used another Essence: "My Fortune Cookie". I used tape and a nail art brush, because I didn't have my striping tape with me..

That's it! Will be back tomorrow, hopefully with my first Jindie Nails swatch! Oooohhh!!!




  1. I love those cute little owls!!! ^_^

  2. Beautiful polish! I won the essence contest too, but I'm not from America or Canada so I can't claim my prize... What was the prize?

    1. I don't know yet! Will let you know :) Congrats though, the honour is already quite fantastic, isn't it?!

    2. Thank you! By the way I LOVE your sugarskull nails! Yep, the fact they picked me is really amazing!

    3. I've seen your blog, and I really enjoy your manis! So you totally deserve the price :D


I love it if people leave comments, they make my day! However, please don't post links to web pages, because I will delete these comments!
