The one with Essence Twins Gabriella+Troy

Hello all! It's almost the new year! I started this blog on January 4, 2011. I've been blogging for almost one full year :) Well, I didn't start blogging about polish and beauty products on January 4, but that's the date I made my first post. Who knows, there might a 1 year blogaversary giveaway coming up soon!

But what do I have for you today? It's another set of Essence twins! This time I've got Gabriella and Troy (are they are High School Musical?) Gabriella is a rich, vibrant grape-y purple with an awesome blue shimmer. She's gorgeous alone, and I was tempted to wear her on her own :) Pictured is one coat.

You can really see the shimmer in the flash photos. It's just a beautiful color! So, as you may have noticed with the Essence Twins, the second "half" of the combo is  a glitter. Troy is a clear jelly base with purple and blue glitter. All of these photos are outside in the sunlight.
So what do you think? Is this a winning duo? I kind of like Gabriella more on its own than with the glitter on top.

**DISCLAIMER**  I was not paid for this review by anyone. I either purchased these polishes myself or were given gifts as friends because I could not find the particular shade I wanted myself.  I am not a professional nail tech, nor do I want to be. I'm just someone who enjoys polishing my own nails :)
