Features Gifted Product in Exchange for Content
Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday! It is Tuesday right, haha? Between long weekends & crazy work hours, I’m definitely feeling out of whack. But I’m excited because I was recently gifted some beautiful shades by Essie as part of their Essie x Révolutionnaire collaboration. For those who don’t know, Révolutionnaire.co was created by Nina & Justice, & is a brand & platform committed to celebrating diversity and inclusivity, and fighting for social justice.
& they’ve teamed up with Essie for a beautiful collection of Expressie shades. I was lucky enough to be gifted the whole collection which includes 6 shades — Take the Espresso, Cold Brew Crew, Buns Up, Millennium Momentum, Daily Grind, & Always Transparent. I have full Swatches coming, but in the meantime I just had to do a fun coffee inspired drag marble after seeing these beautiful colours — &, okay, maybe the polish names inspired me slightly too.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
- Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
- Top Coat: Essie Expressie Always Transparent
- Essie Expressie Buns Up
- Essie Expressie Daily Grind
- Essie Expressie Cold Brew Crew
- Essie Expressie Take the Expresso
- NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio (I use the tiniest end)
This was my first experience using Essie Expressie shades, & they’re just lovely. I’ll get into all those details with my swatch post, but they were awesome for this drag marble look. Sometimes when you’re using so many shades, they can start to dry too quickly, but I didn’t find that happened with these. However, the polish over all did dry pretty well , especially after I topped them with Always Transparent. No pulling, or smearing, either.
I love how much these reminds me of coffee/latte art. As a self confessed coffee addict, I love anything coffee related. & these shades just called to coffee inspired look!
What do you think about this coffee inspired drag marble? Does this look remind you of coffee? Have you checked out the new Essie x Révolutionnaire collection? You can purchase it via the Révolutionnaire.co site, or at your local Shoppers Drug Mart. Collection is out now!
