Essence Let Me in Pink with Eclipse glitter

I think I need to purge my stash of all my dupes of this shade of pink:



This is Let Me in Pink by Essence, two coats.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a pretty colour, I just have serious deja vu right now. It’s too similar to other pinks in my stash and there’s nothing unique about it.

So what did I do? I covered it in glitter:



(Deliberately blurry to show off the pretty holo glitter).

I immediately regretted doing this. I felt like a ten year old. It was just too much.

There was a lot of pretty glitter in this polish, all holo bar glitter, micro glitter, larger glitter particles and even some stars (although I got one star out of the whole bottle). It just looked wrong on me. By the second day it grew on me just a little, but only enough for me to stop wanting to saw my fingers off.


Are there some glitters you just feel you can’t pull off?



  1. I think it looks pretty cool. And no, I love *all* my glitters. :)

  2. ooh - I brought that pink today :D I wonder if I have any similar :)

  3. Thanks :D

    It's a pretty generic pink, Sarah.. Not sure what I expected though!!
