NOTD: Essence - Object of Desire


I love this color. It's a gorgeous pink deep coral with a subtle silver pearl to it. The first picture is the most color accurate in daylight, second picture is full on sunshine. I'm honestly so impressed by Essence nail polishes, they apply so smoothly, no bubbling at all, and are opaque in two coats without being too thick. And they are so inexpensive being one of the cheapest drugstore brands in the German-speaking realm. If you have Essence available at your drugstore, definitely try out one of their nail polishes. I'm not a fan of their other products but the polishes are good. Unfortunately the color range is rather limited but I've picked up a couple of these now and haven't been disappointed with the formula yet.

What's on your nails? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I'm wearing China Glaze in grape juice! I tried China Glaze after one of your video's and I must say I haven't been disappointed. My nails have a lot of natural oil and polish usually only lasts a couple of days. The CG polishes last for several days with no real signs of wear. I'm in the middle of trying a new cuticle oil right now that smells wonderful. My cuticles are horrible. I'll let you know if it works or not!! One junkie to another!! LOL

  4. Have you tried "Rock It, Baby!" (essence colour & go)out already? it's simply amazing!

    What's on my nails: Rimmel London 60 Seconds nail polish #819 "Green With Envy".
    You should really check if you can get it where you live because it's sooo vibrant and unique (at least I haven't seen any nail polish like this one yet :D).

    Two other ones I really like: Nivea Beauté color mini in "Yellow Sparkle" & basic nailpolish # 76.
    Hopefully you will be able to take a look at those :D.

    Keep it up, Antonia.

  7. I'm currently wearing Done Out in Deco by OPI. It's a grayish purple color. I've not worn polish on my hands in many years. At least not since I used to wear inch long acrylics. You've inspired me to focus on my nails again...only this time...my natural nails. Your nails are gorgeous!! Thanks for the blog and videos!

  9. The Green with Envy is a great colour!! I was looking at it yesterday while shopping! I have a pigment that matches!! So nice!

  10. I have a very strange bottle of Done Out In Deco by OPI. I say strange because none of my other OPIs 'behave' this way. The brush applicator is so stiff that each time the bristle touches the nail, it 'scratches' the polish away, leaving a hole there. I do mean hole and not streaks.

    2ndly, I knocked the bottle over in an accident and it rolled a tad. Nothing flowed out which is strange.

    3rdly, first and second coat of this polish streaked. After putting on the 2nd coat, I could still see streaks if I put my nails against light.

    Finally... I love the colour. I think it is gorgeous! Willing to put up with all of the aboe cons because of the colour. =P

    I usually only have time to do my toes and my poor fingernails always break, so I rarely do them.
    On my toes right now, I have "Lost Without My GPS" from Sephora by OPI. It's a pinky coral color. :)

    By the way, I do think your nails look better when they are shorter. But thats just my opinion :-) Keep it up girl!

    Derzeit hab ich gaaanz kurze Nägel (mag ich am liebsten) und hab einen Nudeton mit goldenen Schimmer drauf. Kennst du p2? Ist auch eine sehr sehr günstige Marke und sie haben supertolle Nagellacke in vielen Farben, die sehr gut halten. Müsste es auch in der SChweiz geben.

  17. I absolutely love coral and orange nail color, even more than pink, and the one you're wearing is LOVELY. Right now I'm using Pure Ice Coral Reef, which I just bought and it looks a little similar to the one your wearing. =)

  21. That's a gorgeous colour, especially with your kin tone! I hate when people post amazing drugstore brands not available here =[ It makes me so jealous.

    On my tips is Kreme de la Kremlin by OPI and For Audrey on my toes =]

  23. I'm wearing Zoya Jordana. It looks like a pink with yellow undertones. I must say however even with Seche Vite it doesn't wear very well and the most I've been doing is typing.

    I love that color. I have one essence nail polish. It's the color psychedelic, or something. But I love it. It's a juicy red-pinkish color, very pretty.
