Essie Belugaria

Today I have another polish from Essie's upcoming Encrusted Treasures to share with you! Essie's Belugaria* ($9.95 CAD) is a very unique and interesting polish, unlike anything I've ever used before. I think that this polish will either sit very well with you, or completely turn you off.

"Live like a czarina in this richly ornamented jet black laced with highly textured matte glitter with flashes of holographic rainbow." - Essie

Essie's Belugaria is a very, very thick polish to apply, as it's half polish, half glitter pieces. This makes it almost impossible to have a perfect application. I used two coats of Belugria, and this polish is very pigmented. Belugaria dried very quickly, and to an extremely textured finish. This formula has mid-sized holographic glitter pieces and black glitter pieces that are supposed to resemble caviar. Belugaria is striving to achieve the popular caviar manicure in just one step, by including the glitter pieces in the polish formula. I myself haven't tried any caviar manicure sets, so I can't tell you how well Belugaria compares. Just be warned that this polish does dry to an extremely rough and textured finish. I mean, I can't even run my hands through my hair without getting my nails caught! This finish isn't up my alley, but I know that some people will enjoy this new look. If you wanted a look with a bit less volume, I'm sure you could use a layer of plain black polish as your base, followed by one coat of Essie's Belugaria.

As I mentioned earlier, I think that this polish will be pretty hit or miss with most people. Honestly, this polish was a miss for me, just because I found the textured finish finish so annoying. This may not be such a turn off for you, but I thought that I should point it out. This almost resembles dried lava on your nails! What do you think about Essie's Belugaria? Are you a fan of this textured look? The new Encrusted Treasures Collection will be hitting shelves November 2013.

  1. That is taking textured polish to the extreme!! I definitly fall in the "miss" group. If I want to be brutely honest, it looks like road tarmac LOL. I'm really surprised this came from Essie... Thanks for sharing this post, but I think I'll pass :P

  2. That looks so cool! I don't think it'd be good as an everyday polish but I can see myself getting creative with it for Halloween.

    1. It was a bit easier to remove than a traditional glitter polish! But it wasn't as easy as removing a cream polish. :)

  7. This is just weird. I was all for the opi liquid sands and loved how quick they dried. Definitely a miss from me.

  8. That looks vile! :| How could Essie think that people would want to buy something that leaves that sort of result? >.<
