Essence recently released a collection of outer space-inspired nail colors, and over the course of several trips to Shoppers Drug Mart, I couldn’t help picking up, well…all of them:
- Outta Space Is the Place (01)
- Across the Universe (02)
- Space Glam (03)
- Beam Me Up! (04)
- Intergalactic Adventure (05)
- We Will Spock You! (06)
- 1000 Light Years Away (07)
The packaging is very sleek and feels a bit fancier than their usual product packaging, with squared glass bottles and mirror-shine caps. All the shades are also various types of iridescent shimmers and glitters. The price reflects these details, and the 9 mL polishes retail for CA$3.99 instead of the usual $2.99 for the 8 mL Gel Nail Polishes.
Today, I’m reviewing Outta Space Is the Place (01), a pearly iridescent white that is—very happily—opaque!
Application is smooth and quite even, with two coats giving full coverage.
I love the opalescent shimmer that flashes green and pink, and even though the finish does veer a bit frosty, I think I still really like it. It’s the perfect snowball nail polish!
Definitely check this one out if you like the look of it!
