Essence: Red Romance

Burgundy semi matte crème

“Red Romance” is from an old collection from Essence called “Dark Romance”. I can’t remember exactly when it’s from but it’s not from recently.

The formula is good and easy to work with. I used two coats for full opacity and the drying time was good.

I topped it with a red/whie/pink/black glitter mix, also from Essence. It’s called “Be My Town Homie”, it’s also an older polish.

Then I stamped on top of it all. The design is from the stamping plate “JR-58” and I stamped with a baby pink stamping polish without name from Born Pretty Store.

Here’s the result:

Essence "Red Romance" topped with one layer of "Be My Town Homie"
Essence “Red Romance” topped with one layer of “Be My Town Homie”


I like the mix on my nails.

Essence "Red Romance" topped with one layer of "Be My Town Homie"
Essence “Red Romance” topped with one layer of “Be My Town Homie”

This is two layers of “Red Romance” topped with one layer of “Be My Town Homie”.

This is “Red Romance” alone; two coats and no topcoat. The top has a sticker with the text “The Matt” on, but as you can see the polish doesn’t dry up completely matte.
