Essence Space Queen

i spent today cleaning horse tack... it was so dirty it took pretty much the whole day! i was shocked by how much the saddle changed color once it was conditioned and oiled... i knew it would some, but it really got a lot darker. i put my new stirrup leathers on, they don't match exactly but they'll do for now. i'm not sure if i'm going to keep the bridle i bought... it's not the perfect color and i don't think i love it as much as i did in the picture. i so wish there was a good tack store around here, i much prefer seeing things in person first.

i decided to put Essence Colour & Go Space Queen over yesterday's post polish, Essence Black Is Back. Space Queen is an iridescent glitter in an ever so slightly peach tinted base. it goes on really easily and gives a great amount of glitter in one coat. i love how it looks over black, it really brings out all the colors in the glitter. you will want to add a shine topcoat to make the glitter really come alive.

one coat Space Queen, one coat Seche Vite, all over  Essence Black Is Back mani.

i'm loving this combo! i know i'm a broken record, but man, Essence polishes rock. Ria :)


i'd love to hear from you guys! let me know if you have any questions or advice :)
