REVIEW: Essie help me grow 5-day growth base

Hi everyone!

Those who follow me on my Instagram know that I started testing Essie help me grow 5-day growth base coat few days ago. Today is day 5 and I wanted to share my results with you.

What does Essie say?
- Formulated with argan oil and micro-nutrient rich algae extract to help protect nails from
damage and breakage. Provides a smooth surface ideal for colour application.

What i think?
- My nails break often when they grew up to certain lenght, that's why I decided to try it. I applied the base coat only on one hand to be able to see the difference between growing my nails with and without base coat. It dries really fast and gives you smooth and shiny finish. The application is very easy due to handy brush.

 After 5 days, the nails with base coat grew longer than the ones without, but the difference is not so obvious, which I expected. I will continue with this for the next 5 days for better results.

Here are my nails during 5 days:

These are my nails from day 1:

and these are after 5 days:

Have you tried this product? What do you think?

Thank you for reading! :)

REVIEW: Essence Cinderella

So... Cinderella is officially in town!
I was looking for it in DMs but like always they are very behind with new editions, so I was very excited when I saw it in Müller. I only wanted to buy the blush because of its cute packaging and bright peachy color and I ended up buying lipglosses and two nail polishes too.

price: 1,49 € for 8ml/0.27fl.oz

01 sing, sweet nightingale
02 bibbidi-bobbidi-boo

I picked two nail polishes (01 sing, sweet nightingale and 02 bibbidi-bobbidi-boo). The first one is light rose color and the second is purple with a little gray, but both of them have nice and smooth porcelain finish.

The application is very easy and surprisingly I have to say that the nail polish dries very quickly, unlike all the other Essence nail polishes I have.

02 bibbidi-bobbidi-boo
01 sing, sweet nightingale


The blush was on my wishlist since I saw the previews of edition. I liked the color and of course the cute packaging too.

price: 3,59 € for 8g/0.28oz

The blush is quite pigmented and vibrant peach color to me, but what I noticed is that it's very similar to the silky touch blush 60 life's cherry. The only difference is that the silky touch blush is more pigmented and a little darker.

Here are the swatches to compare them:

I also bought two lipglosses, one pastel pink and other bright red. Both leaves sparkle effect on lips and are not to sticky, just a little.

price: 2,19 € for 4ml/0.13fl.oz
