[GIVEAWAY – closed] Essence Limited Edition “Cookies & Cream” nail polishes [Update]

Hello everyone,

I am so happy to announce that I am hosting my first giveaway!

[THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED – the winner was announced here]

Essence Cookies and Cream LE giveaway


Please read this post carefully.

I can not believe how lucky I am to already have so many people who like my blog. People who supported me almost from day one, when I started 2 months ago and in general people who followed and come back daily to see what I have want to show you.

To show my appreciation, I am hosting this giveaway.

I am sorry, but this time there will only be one price. I thought it might be more intresting to enter if one person can get all of the polishes from this LE at once. Especially for people who live outside of Germany and can not get these in their country. Please respect my decision :)

Maybe for my next giveaway there will be more prices.

The winner from this giveaway will get all four nail polishes from Essence current Limited Edition “Cookies & Cream”.
As you can see on the picture, you will also get 2 sets of stickers who came with these polishes.

Sally Hansen 460 Save the date vs. Rival de Loop 704

Hello everyone,

today I want to show you two more of my favorite polishes.
First I bought this Rival de Loop Long lasting nail polish and fell in love with it. I don’t even know what this color is called or how it would be best described as but you can see what it is.
Sadly when I contacted the company, they told me that they neither produce nor sell this color anymore so I was very frustrated. This polish is one of my go to polishes when I have no idea what to put on.

So I was looking for a dupe, which is not easy to be found.
While I was in New York this January, I saw this beautiful Sally Hansen Diamond Strength no chip nail color ( 460 Save the Date). I thought it looked pretty similar to the Rival de Loop one and since I heard so many good things about Sally Hansen polishes this was my first ever Sally Hansen nail polish. It contains 13,3ml and was about 6 $ I think. I put it on immediately that night and was very impressed. It went on very smoothly because of it’s liquid consistency. The only thing I am still getting used to is this super thin and loooong nail brush^^
I don’t get it, because the Fuzzy Coat I bought later on has a much nicer brush.
On the other hand, my two Xtream Wear polishes from Sally Hansen have the same thin brush.
I don’t know, I think they should switch all the thin brushes to the ones from the Fuzzy Coat, because it makes it much easier to apply the polish.

The polishes are very similar looking in the bottles.

When you apply them you can see the slight difference though.
The second finger on the left was painted with the Sally Hansen polish, the second from the right is the Rival de Loop polish.
As you can see, the Sally Hansen polish is a bit more purple with a golden shimmer. The Rival de Loop polish is more dark red with golden shimmer.


I think these are both gorgeous polishes, but the Sally Hansen polish is not really a dupe to my Rival de Loop polish.
Means I will have to continue searching for a dupe.
Meanwhile I will try not to use my Rival de Loop polish as much.

I hope you enjoyed this post.
