Pink Wednesday ~ Essie Super Bossa Nova & Essence Circus Confetti
Happy Pink Wednesday! Today I'm wearing a pink that's been on my wish list for awhile. I picked up Essie Super Bossa Nova during an Apothica haul. Super Bossa Nova is a bright fuchsia that is filled with purple shimmer. The formula was absolutely flawless. It was opaque in one coat, but I applied two hoping to see more of the shimmer on the nail.
Super Bossa Nova fell a little flat for me. The shimmer on the nail doesn't appear as well as it does in the bottle. Although the color is not that unique, the formula makes it a keeper.
I decided to jazz Super Bossa Nova up a little bit more by trying a reverse gradient. I first saw this look on my polish friend Enamel Girl and knew I needed to try it. I sponged Essence Special Effect Topper in Circus Confetti on the bottom 2/3 of each nail. Circus Confetti is packed with pink, red, gold, black, blue, green, and silver glitter. The glitter dispersed well and was easy to apply.
Super Bossa Nova! Let me know your thoughts on this trend.
