Review and Swatch: Essence Metal Glam Steel-ing the Scene (+Comparison+Fall Manicure+Giveaway)

Hi, girls! Today's post will be photo heavy. I have for you a review of Essence golden topper from Metal Glam collection, but beside that also few other stuff, like swatch of a polish I used under golden topper, comparison, a fall NOTD and last but not least a giveaway. :)


Let's start with a polish, that I used as a base for topper. This is Coral Prosilk 153, a nail polish from a brand called Delia Cosmetic. I got it last year in Nama, it was on Eveline stand, although I can't say, why, because it's obviously not Eveline nail polish. It's a dusty greyish blue shade, that contains a tiny shimmer. First I though, that it's a creamy shade, but after application the shimmer is more noticeable. It has more liquidy formula, so it has to be applied in thin coats, but it applys very nicely. It's opaque after 3 coats. It's very pretty shade, I don't have anything similar in my stash, but I was a bit dissapointed, because I really wanted, that this would be a creamy polish, not shimmery.


And now let's go to the Steel-ing the Scene, a golden topper from Metal Glam collection. First I wasn't planning to get this topper, but more swatches I saw, more I liked it and when I found 2 bottles of it in DM, I had to bring it with me. And I don't regret it, because it's very gorgeous polish. It contains big and smaller golden flakies, that are in clear base, and the formula is really amazing, because it goes smoothly on nails and also flakies do transfer nicely on nails. When you apply thin coat, there are less flakies on nails, and when you apply thicker coat, there more of them on nails. The prize is 2,19 € for 8 ml of polish.


The reason, why I first didn't want to get it, is in 2 other similar polishes, I already own, but when I saw, it's completely different from them, I changed my mind. The polishes, I'm talking about, are NYX Girls Gilded Glitter and H&M New Moon


Flakies in H&M New Moon are smaller and sheerer than in other 2 polishes. NYX Girls Gilded Glitter has flakies from very tiny ones to a bit bigger ones, but none is so big as in Essence topper. Flakies in Essence Steel-ing the Scene are the biggest (although there are some smaller ones too) and the most yellowish. Obviously none of these is a dupe. They are all in clear base and flakies from all of them transfer nicely on nails.


I also made a comparison on nails over the same polish, because in upper photo they're applied over different polishes. As a base used Bourjois In the Navy.


Guess what? In this post I also have a fall coloured manicure. First I was thinking to post it in a separate blogpost, but god knows, when it would be posted, so I decided to include it in this post. First I did a gradient manicure with Essence It's Peach Not Cherry, Essence I'm So Very and P2 Before Sunrise. In the end I layered over it Essence Steel-ing the Scene. This is the manicure, I'm wearing on my nails this moment and I really like it.


Did you manage to break through this post till here? Great, then I have a little surprise for you. I manage to get 2 bottles of Essence Steel-ing the Scene gold topper and one bottle will go to one of you. But there are some rules, you have to follow, if you want to win this polish:
1. You have to be follower of my blog via GFC or Bloglovin.
2. Leave a comment under this post saying anything you like, but it has to refear on post (why do you like Essence polish, what do you think about my fall manicure or Coral Prosilk shade ...). Comments, that will say "Great giveaway, I'm in." and nothing else, won't be consider. Please, don't forget to mention, that you want to enter this giveaway, because I know, some of you already have this polish and you may wouldn't want to enter this giveaway.
3. Giveaway is open only for Europe and it will close on Saturday, 12. 10. 2013 at Midnight.


Uf, that was quite a long post. So, tell me, what do you think about Esence Metal Glam collection? Did you get anthing from it? What about this Essence topper, do you like it? And my fall manicure? Thank you for reading!

  1. Zdajle mi bo pa žal, ker vidim, da ima večina blogerk ta topper:) No jaz bom tudi sodelovala v giveawayju. Tvoja jesenska manikura pa mi je ekstremno všeč, sploh kombinacija rdečih odtenkov in zlate.

  3. I really want to get this essence polish, but it's still not in croatia...and when limited editions come, if I miss it the first day, sometimes all the great products get grabbed away and i miss them... hopefully I will manage to find it, I really wouldnt want to miss it, it looks so stunning...especially over the gradient. I like this essence polish so much better than the other two you have swatched. Maybe I should travel to slovenia hehe ;)

  10. ooo kakšna lepa manikura.... tvoja jesenka manikura zgleda kot listje s prelivajočimi rjavimi odtenki:) Tale gold topper sem gledala v trgovini pa se nisem zanj odločila, pa mi je zdaj žal, zato bi tudi jaz sodelovala v tvoji nagradni igri :)

    Ta ima še najbolj take zlate lističe- v primerjavi s H&M in drugimi:)

  11. Zlat glitter sem ravno predkratkim iskala.. Samo sem si potem premislila. Ni bilo lepega. Tile pa so prav čudoviti, najbolj mi je všeč od NYX in Essence-zlati lističi. Mogoče bo pa kateri moj. Zdaj ko vem kej iskat :D

  12. Super manikure! <3 Tale topper videvam po vseh blogih in mi je zelo všeč, ampak ga sama še nisem utegnila poiskati (no, Essence topperji so itak zakon, sploh za nas, ki smo mahnjeni na bleščice). :) Z veseljem sodelujem v nagradni igri.

  15. vau, odlične manikure i super giveaway!
    ono što obožavam kod essence lakova je mala cijena za super izbor boja! baš sam potrošila svoj make it golden lakić u u potrazi sam za novim zlatnim nadlakom i ovaj je kao naručen (nadam se da će me sreća pratiti pa ga i osvojim :D)
    i još jedna zamolba: možeš li napraviti post o tome kako napraviti savršen gradient?! :)

  22. First of all I adore your fall gradation manicure (that P2 seems to die for)! I don't think that Metal Glam will be distributed in my country (it seems we won't get also Superheroes, I really hope I can find the polishes I'm lemming at the Supernova or Qlandia DMs) and the golden flakies are intriguing...So count my entry in your giveaway please (following through GFC and Bloglovin)!

  24. Tale essencov topper res noro izapade na vseh manikurah, še posebej pa mi je všeč na modri (palec in mezinec :D) in te ombre manikuri :) Sem bila v dmu, ko je bilo še polno stojalo s to kolekcijo pa nisem vedela, da je ta topper tako lep in ga nisem vzela. Tako, da ja, sodelujem v giveawayu :)

  25. Z topperjem si popestrila jesensko manikuro, ki izgleda svetovno! Zeelo mi je všeč. Izbrala si zelo lepe barve, topper je pa kot pika na i. Z vsakim postom in novo manikuro me vedno znova presenečaš in sem zelo navdušena nad tvojimi manikurami in idejami :) Drugače pa tudi jaz sodelujem v giveawayu.

  29. Coral Prosilk 153 me podsjeća malo na Catrice Up in the air. Lak je divan, a u kombinaciji s essencovim topperom izgleda odlično!

  33. Ajme, uopće nisam obraćala pažnju na ovaj topper, pitanje dal' ga uopće više ima u mojem dm-u. Nadam se da ću ga uspjeti nabaviti ako već neću imati sreće u giveawayu :) Preko jesenskog gradienta mi posebno lijepo izgleda. Kad malo razmislim, ovo bi bila idealna manikura za 1. dan onog našeg ljetnog izazova i temu ''warm colours'' :D
