notd | ticket to the show

I've completely missed the opportunity to do any Christmas themed nail art this year, my nails have been in such bad condition (fingers crossed that Santa brings some OPI Nail Envy) that I've been trying to lay off the nail varnish as much as possible to give my fingertips a break. 
As you can see from the title, this is a nail of the day so that thought didn't really go as planned. Oh well.
Ticket To The Show is very dark, almost black shade with lots of multicoloured shimmer that although look gorgeous in the bottle fails to show up as much on the nails. The shimmer is very subtle and is only visible when it catches the light.
Front Row Or Backstage? is a golden brown, and is more sparkly than it's counterpart. Both took three coats to be opaque.
Neither of the shades had very good staying power even with a top and base coat but for only a few euros you can't expect too much. You can also create a third colour by layering the two shades on top of each other, I've seen a similar design with these nail polishes by Andrea Fulerton.
Essence Colour³ in 06 Ticket To The Show
As the nail polish is by Essence I'm afraid they aren't available in the UK, but if you're in Europe be sure to give any Essence stands you see a look!

Merry Christmas!
