When this little number landed on my doormat I was intrigued. I'm not ususally a huge fan of effect nail polishes like this as they don't tend to have the intended finish and they seem a bit gimmicky. Denim effect nail polish, for example, is not really my thing. The ones I've tried just don't look like denim, more of a weird metallicy blue!
So I was pleasantly surprised when I tried Essence's Latex* polish. I was expecting more of a pure matte finish but it's weird!! It's like a shiny matte, like latex! It's so hard to explain but if you've ever had PVC leggings (or leather if you're fancy) then you will know the effect I mean.
The inner rock child inside of me really liked this polish. I added some studs to jazz things up a bit but I thought the polish worked well on its own too. I haven't tried any Essence polishes before this and was pleasantly surprised with the application. A few bumps showed underneath as it is semi matte which makes flaws a bit more visible but overall coverage was very good. Clean up wasn't too bad either.
Have you tried a finish like this before? What did you think?
