Layering NOTD: Essence – Waking up in Vegas over BB Couture – Dragon’s Breath

Essence 01 Waking up in Vegas from Re-mix Your Style over BB Couture Dragon's Breath Dragons Breath layering swatch swatches

There is no such thing as owning enough flakie top coats, right? A few weeks ago Essence released their much anticipated Re-mix your Style collection here in Germany. A collection only including nail polishes. Re-mix your Style includes six base colors (five cremes and one shimmer) and four top coats. Five delicious top coats.
The most hyped top coat from the Re-mix your Style collection surely is 01 Waking up in Vegas – the flakie top coat! :) I purchased so many of it and I am still not sure if I bought enough. I maybe need to go back for one or two more because I love to franken with it and sadly there is no perm top coat like it available here.

Waking up in Vegas is not unique. It is similar to beloved flakie top coats like Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure, Nubar 2010, Gosh Rainbow (I wish I would own this one :( *le sigh*), the Maybelline Shimmer Girl top coat or a Golden Rose one but like I said: there is no such thing as enough flakie top coats! πŸ˜€

After wearing BB Couture Dragon’s Breath I wanted to add a simple layering so I layered one coat of Waking up in Vegas over Dragon’s Breath today.

Coats used
Essence – 01 Waking up in Vegas: one
BB Couture – Dragon’s Breath: three
Base coat and top coat
Base coat: OPI – Nail Envy Matte
Top Coat: Essence – Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer β™₯
Essence Re-mix your Style nail polishes contain 8 ml and BB Couture nail polishes contain 15 ml.

Yum! The opal flakes in Waking up in Vegas seem to be less dense as in Maybelline Shimmer Girl for example but it’s still flakie deliciousness. A flakie top coat with a clear base is always fun because you can basically layer it over any nail polish you are wearing.

Have you purchased anything from the Re-mix your Style collection? I hope it will come to the US too because you need the top coats!
My second favorite top coat is 01 Feels so good (another 01? odd) which reminds me a lot of the CND Sparkle Effects. It sparkles green, gold, pink or purple depending on in which lighting you look at it. Stunning.

Thanks for looking and have a great week! β™₯ :)

  1. This is limited edition I’m assuming. :/ I’m only saying that cause guess what? Remember the Holographic (*cough* duo *cough*) line? My local ULTA just put it out and I only got 3 of the 5 shades. :/ It’ll be a long wait.
