Essence Colour & Go: Chic Reloaded

Essence Chic Reloaded (2 coats)

Yesterday it was 80 degrees outside, and today it is 50. Ugh! I know it's only going to last a few days, but it reminds me of what is yet to come. How is it in your neck of the woods? 

As I mentioned a few months back, Essence revamped their bottles, made them bigger, and raised the price (they are now $1.99, I think). I don't mind the price increase since we are getting more product, but one thing I don't like is the new brush. It not quite as big as the Sally Hansen brushes, but they are similar in that they are big and mop-like. I thought the old brushes were perfect for my nails, so I'm a bit disappointed in this aspect. Chic Reloaded is a new duochrome shimmer with purple and green/teal accents. The color change is more pronounced in the bottle, but you can still see it on the nail. For only $2, this is definitely worth it. With the brush, it was a bit difficult getting thin coats, and I got a little pooling, but I don't think it was the polish's fault.
