Essence – Nails in Style nail polishes: Swatches and Review

Essence Nails in Style nail polishes Swatches and Review

A collection named Nails in Style just had to attract my attention. :D When I saw the first press releases I knew I had to check this collection out and take a very close look at its four nail polishes. In the promo pics we already could see that one of them would be a duochrome and I was happy to see that in person it really is a beautiful duochrome.

Nails in Style includes two foils and two shimmers with one of them beeing this gorgeous duochrome. Let’s take a look if you might want to add any of them to your wishlist. :)

01 Style for Summer Nights

Style for Summer Nights (or Style for Summernights on the bottle) is your basic silver foil. It is pretty but not very unique. The formula was great though and it was opaque with two coats.
02 Style Me Holo

A duochrome! *squee* :D The name of Style Me Holo still shows the known issue that Essence calls duochromes holos but this gorgeous nail polish makes up for it. Style Me Holo reminds me of Blue Ray from Essence’s Holographics.com collection but it’s darker and the blue is yellow-toned – almost teal. Love it and highly recommend to pick it up if you have the chance.
It was a bit more sheer than Blue Ray and I applied three coats for an opaque look.
03 Style Me Love

Style Me Love is the second foil of the Nails in Style collection and to me much more unique than Style for Summer Nights. I don’t have a warm pink foil like Style Me Love in my collection yet and I am glad I picked it up. It’s so pretty and the formula was also great and I applied two coats to have an opaque finish.
04 Style-ish Baby

Such a summery color! Style-ish Baby is a pretty light and bright aqua blue with teal undertones. Sadly it’s a bit frosty and causes some brushstrokes. I applied two coats but I think three coats might have been better.

The formula of all four nail polishes from the Nails in Style collection was good. I am so glad to see another pretty duochrome with Style Me Holo and a pretty pink foil with Style Me Love in this collection. I definitely highly recommend to pick both up if Essence is available in your country.

This week I saw a few fresh displays of Nails in Style so you still might have the chance to pick them up here in Germany. I hope this collection will be released in the US soon too – usually the Essence limited editions are available a few months later than in Germany.

Are you planning to pick something from Nails in Style up? :)

Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥

    • Nails in Style was released here about a month ago or even a bit more so I hope that this collection will ne available in the US in the next months too, The Lacquered Lady! It’s so hard to guess when Essence’s collections make it to the US. I wish Essence would publish a separate US release schedule for you guys. :(
