Essence Here's My Number and Hey, Nude! (Sparkle Sand Effect) + Giveaway

Hi, everyone! Today I have for you swatches of 2 Essence sand nail polishes. I have to say, I was very excited, when I heard, that they'll release sand polishes, but then I was disappointed over color choice, because they released only 3 shades (black, beige, red). I really though there will be more colorful shades. Red one never convinced me, so I never took it for myself. But I did get black and beige polishes and these 2 I'm showing you today.


Here's my Number is a black shade with silver glitter and holographic shimmer. It's very similar to P2 Classy, only less black (the comparison will come tomorrow, when I'll show you another sand polish from black color family). Its formula it's ok and mine bottle has a nice brush, that makes application easy. I used 2 coats for this swatch.


I was on a hunt for Hey, Nude! for so long, because it was always sold out, and in the end I was disappointed. It's not the problem in the formula or anything, but in the color. From first swatches, that I saw on many blogs, I could say, that this polish was more "white" or better said, brighter, not so beige. Hey, Nude! it's a true beige color with silver glitter and multicoloured shimmer, which isn't really visible on swatches. It's not a bad shade at all, but I don't like it on me. The formula is sheerer than by Here's My Number, I used 2 thicker coats and my nail line is still visible.  I didn't want to use another coat, because it would look too thick. It would probably be good for layering, but I haven't try it that way, because as I said, it didn't convince me. Both polishes dry quickly, but if you want them to look glossy, you can use a top coat. 


On Essence and Catrice event I took Here's my Number and Me and my Lover to give them away to one of you, but I decided to add to this giveaway my bottle of Hey, Nude! I haven't wore it as a manicure, I just swatched it in 2 coats on four fingers. Other 2 bottles are new, but this one is already tried, so if you don't like used polishes, don't enter this giveaway.
