Essie - Pink Works (Pink About It, Breast Cancer Awareness Collection 2013)


I'm in a pink flow here, so today I show you Essie's Pink Works from the Breast Cancer Awareness Collection of last year. This pink is described as a "fresh pink with reflective red shimmer"......welllllll.....it is pink, you can look at it as fresh I guess, but that red shimmer????? There is some slight shimmer in the bottle but it does not transfer to the nail at all. So you end up with a completely average pink creme on your nails.

This was three coats and it applied fairly good for a light creme pink. It is not squishy looking and it had no depth due to the disappearing shimmer.
Out of the two polishes from this Collection I prefer Pink About it; the shimmer is more visible (although not holografic as was advertised) and it looks more much more squishy. For me Pinks Works just does not work.
All in all this collection was a disappointment for me really, there are far more interesting pinks on the market then these (even Essie has them...).
