Essence - Waking Up In Vegas . . . or awesomeness in a bottle :)

Sometimes I just don't get me :)) I wanted this polish sooo bad and I didn't even wore it once since I got it back in December. I don't know why, because it's AWESOME!
Attention!
Picture Spam ahead :P 
This is one coat of Essence Waking Up in Vegas over 1 coat of Avon Wicked. Wicked is actually a very dark red polish with shimmer, which inspired me to top it of with the flakies. :)
The Essence flakies are very dense and I had to be careful to apply just a thin coat, otherwise you wouldn't have been able to see the polish underneath :) I also had to add a little bit of thinner to it, because it was a bit thick.
The following pictures show you the color change from green to red:  
Wow!! I have no words for this :P Most of the time the flakies look like on the picture above, mostly red and orange but in daylight they look amazing! Look:
The last picture kinda reminds me of Jamaica, cause of the red, yellow and green :D
This is my very first flakie polish and I'm glad I stressed out my mom to get me this beauty. I think she went to every store in the city to find it and eventually she did. Thank you so much mom!! :))  

Do you like flakies? Which ones are a must-have? :) 
Thanks for reading and have a great day!

  4. AAww i was SO on a hunt for this... but I couldn't find it anywhere :((
    Either the SA didn't even know what I was talking about "what? trend edition?? I think we don't have it yet...." Or it was already sold out.

    I think I have to go with Essies Shine of the Times instead...

    Great layering!!
