I was debating for days over this nail varnish and whether I actually liked it or not, as to be honest, although I love both of these nail polishes, I don't think the way I have applied the glitter as a top coat is to my liking! I initially chose this combo 'a sprinkle in pink' as it works out cheaper than buying the two nail polishes separately, and I thought they would look lovely together! I am a sucker for pink and glitter polishes so this was perfect. The two nail polishes in this combo are 'figi' and 'a cut above' which you can actually buy seperately, I really like the combos that ESSIE offer, but I do think the selection is quite small, this is the only one which caught my eye!

I think rather than applying the glitter as a top coat, I will applying to just the tips or to one nail on each hand instead. Do you have any other ideas?! I am completely useless at nail art!

Do you have many ESSIE nail polishes? Leave me a comment below :) 


  1. I'm a big fan of glitter nail polishes. I personally prefer how they look after a good 2 or 3 coats as that really builds up texture. I'd really love to buy this set but it's just to pricey for me so I'll be sticking to Barry M for now! :)

  2. Oh my goodness those nail polishes look so pretty together! I saw someone on Instagram apply the glitter to just the tips and it looked gorgeous :)

  3. Love this, it looks gorgeous! So tempted to grab a duo! x

  4. These look stunning paired together glittery but not over the top so nice: Essie has some gorgeous nail colours so nice

  5. These colour are gorgeous and can see why you couldn't resist. I totally understand what you mean about the top coat, I just did a post about nails in glitter polish and found it quite hard to deal with. I normally just do one nail with glitter and the rest normal. xxx
