Where Is The Party? is a frosty purple with a green duochrome and it was just awful to apply: really thick and goopy. I've never read anything about anyone having problems with the application of Essence polishes, which is why I think mine was a one-off issue. Because it had been opened, I think it might have dried out a little and that's why it didn't apply all that smoothly. It dried really fast, but because it applied so thick, it bubbled on me. A layer of topcoat smoothed it out, but I could still see the bubbles, which is why I added Sprinkles over the top. Sprinkles has a clear base with silver, green and pink glitter in it. It disguised the bubbles nicely.
Left: Sprinkles. Right: Where Is The Party?
The result was really pretty. Because it's a duochrome, the pink glitter really stood out when it flashed green and when it flashed purple, the green glitter stood out. It's not very dense glitter, but it added a nice amount of sparkle.
Looking straight on, it's purple.
Angled slightly towards the light, it's purple with green tinges at the edges.
And angled even further, it's a greyish green.
This is my Essence nail polish and although my experience wasn't the best, I'm willing to try it again because I'm pretty sure it's a one-off.
