Nails: Time for Romance

Argh! It’s so hard to think of titles if the shade name sounds so good. This is the second Essence Nail Polish (glitter topper) that I tried. Time for Romance is a purple jelly base with a large amount of purple glitter and large hexagonal bits. I bought this at SM Makat for only Php99.


It looks soooo pretty in the bottle. Will it look just as pretty on the nail? Check it out below!


I used two coats of Dazzle Dry Strawberry Macaron as base for all fingers except the ring finger. I then applied one layer of Time for Romance on the tips of the thumb, pointer, and middle fingers in a french tip manner. The ring finger has two coats of the glitter topper alone. The pinky has one layer spread all over Strawberry Macaron.

Time for Romance has an almost opaque purple base that it can actually be used alone (check out the ring finger). It looks almost the same as when topped over Strawberry Macaron. The jelly-looking base really reminds me of strawberry or grape jam that I used to spread on bread when I was a kid.


Check out the sunlight shots! Yummy glitter!
