I've been rekindling my love affair with my Essence polishes and I'm ashamed that this one has gone untried for so long! I love these polishes, they're a great price and totally decent quality with lots of colors that appeal to me.
Shown above is three thin coats of Grey-T to Be Here over Nailtek II Foundation and sealed with OTD. It's got a light grey creme base with subtle pink shimmers that peek out just a little bit. The color and formula was slighty sheer so it took three coats but it builds so nicely that it wasn't even an issue. The pink/grey color combo works so nicely as well, a pleasant surprise! My lighting setup washed out the shimmers a bit though, they are a bit more noticeable to the naked eye.
And I know it seems to be totally hit and miss and I'm sure I'm in the minority here but I ADORE the brush. The shape and width of it completely fits my nails and makes application super easy. I've seen a decent amount of dislike regarding the brush but I'm personally a huge fan of it. It's a bit on the wide side so I can see why those with smaller nails/hands might not be too keen on it, though.
