NOTD: Space Glam by Essence...

Out Of Space Stories is Essence's current limited edition seven-piece nail polish collection, and is now in Wilco stores.

What makes this collection exciting is that it contains holographic, duochrome and foil finishes - for £2 each!!

Do you really need anymore incentive to go out and track down this collection, after hearing that?!

Essence describe Space Glam as being a "holographic, iridescent and metallic nail polish, [that] comes in a purple colour", but I think it applies as more of a rose gold as the sheer pink/mauve formula has a strong goldish micro-glitter shimmer, that has a subtle green shift which dilutes the shade that you see in the bottle. The micro-glitters lie nice and flat on the nail, for a lovely foil effect finish. I find this polish rather reminiscent to Dream Dust by Nails inc [Dream Dust is a bit darker].

The slight iridescence to the base of the formula means that it leans towards the sheer side - after three coats I could still see a hint of nail line, which is subtle enough to not bother me - but if you are a stickler for VNL, then make sure that you are using a tinted base coat when wearing Space Glam. The coverage of the polish is smooth, even, non-streaky, and the coats all dry quickly. This polish wears pretty well [no chips for two days on me] for the type of finish of the formula; but for a UK £2 drugstore brand you aren't going to find many unique shades and/or finishes, so I highly recommend buying this, despite the longevity not being great compared to other, pricier, brands.

Buy Space Glam from a Wilco store, or from the site here for £2 [9ml bottle].
