Opulent Essences 'Neptune' & 'Liquid Gold'

*Press Sample*
Hello lovelies! I have two more polishes from UK indie Opulent Essences to share with you. If you missed my swatches of the two new holographics last week, you can find my post here. Today's post will feature both 'Neptune' and 'Liquid Gold'. As always, read on for full swatches and more info!

Opulent Essences 'Neptune' & 'Liquid Gold' @acertainbeccaa

'Neptune' is a rich royal blue with a slight shimmer. I love how deep this is while still being vibrant. It is smooth and easy to apply, and very opaque. It does dry very quickly, so if you manipulate it too much it may drag slightly. I made my second coat a little bit thicker which avoided any pulling. Below is two coats and topcoat.

'Liquid Gold' is an almost bronze gold chrome. It is very nearly a one coater. As it is a chrome it does apply with brush strokes. However the majority disappear as it dries, leaving a gorgeous smooth finish. I found this a bit tricky to clean off of my skin, but I don't use pure acetone so that's probably why! Below is two coats and topcoat.

What do you think? Both of these pleasantly surprised me! I'm not a massive fan of darker blues but the deep vibrance of 'Neptune' really won me over. I was also really pleased by the finish on 'Liquid Gold', and the bronze tones suit my skin tone much better than a yellow gold would.

Both of these polishes are currently available on Opulent Essence's etsy store ('Neptune' here, and 'Liquid Gold' here). Remember to also check them out on Instagram here for more swatches.

Hope to see you in the next post!
