Essence Choose Me

Today's NOTD is Essence Choose Me. This is a beautiful Blue-y green duochrome glitter polish that reminds me of the sea. It flashes from blue as shown in the below photo, to a sea green (which I couldn't capture at all!) . It's very much in the same vein as Zoya Charla, OPI Catch Me in Your Net and Orly Hayley's Comet, while I don't have those other polishes I believe this a dupe for them.  

And really close up

Application of this was perfect, although I always this the brush is a little stubby on the these colour and go polishes, but it's perfectly fine to work with and it's just me nitpicking, for less than €2  I can live with it!  The pictures show 2 coats topped with a coat of seche vite. Wear was good I got  about 5 days out of this before minor chippage started appearing. 

I have to say this was a grower on me, I loved it in the bottle and was slightly dissapointed when I first put this on first but the more I wore it, the more I loved it particularly the duochromeness of it! 

Have you tried this or one of it's many dupes? What did you think? 


  1. I love blues but not too keen on greens so I am not too sure about this shade! It's funny though how some colours do grow on you. I normally love or hate a colour straight away from the bottle but occasionally, one I am not too sure of will grown on me. Nice post.

  2. I love it :) looks fab x

  3. Helen99- it's weird isn't how your perception of a colour changes over time

  4. This polish does look fab over a purple Rimmel one which I can't remember the name of! It changes the 2 of them to more amazingness!
