Essence Limited Trend Edition: Circus Circus My Sparkling Acrobat Review

Essence's Circus Circus trend edition got released this week here in Australia and is exclusive to Priceline. I immediately knew that I wanted  needed the 'My Sparking Acrobat' polish in my life! A duo consisting of a lovely shiny black creme and a mix of golden glitter particles interspersed with larger square glitter pieces, My Sparkling Acrobat is absolutely stunning and pretty unique. Personally I think the entire 'Circus Circus' trend edition is pretty exciting and the release of more of these double-ended polishes is awesome. I have my eye on the eau de toilette from this range too!

Originally released in December 2011 for other countries this has just landed here in Australia and it looks like a great collection so run (don't walk) to your closest Priceline!

So I began with one coat of the black creme and can I just say WOW!!!!! This is seriously one amazing polish - super shiny, with a perfect creme finish and it applies like a dream. Oh and it's a one coater too! Love, love, love it!

Here is a picture of the black polish on it's own.

Then I did one coat of the gold glitter. This is also, super impressive, as it is a very dense glitter and you don't  need to arrange the glitter at all. It too applies wonderfully. Here is a picture with one coat of glitter! How impressive is that? seriously....a one-coater dense glitter top coat!!! :)

I then added another layer of the glitter but this was totally unnecessary and I think I prefer it with only one coat of the glitter. Oh well, I know for next time! I then used essence's 'gel look XXL Shine' top coat. This glitter does need a topcoat to feel smooth.

Overall this is definitely a polish to get excited about.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend :)
