If you saw my recent Fragrance Direct haul, you will have seen that I managed to buy three stunning Essie nail polishes from the Encrusted Treasures collection from 2013 for only £2.25 each. One of the Essie polishes that I bought was On A Silver Platter which couldn’t be more fitting for a self confessed magpie. Essie describe On A Silver Platter as having holographic violet glitter pieces within an antique gold base, which I agree with however I’d describe the glitter pieces as being a royal blue rather than violet. There is no doubt that On A Silver Platter is incredibly beautiful.. it sparkles every time I move my nails, with the holographic glitter catching the light.
The polish applies so evenly and is opaque in only one coat, however I added a further coat for a more intense effect. Glitter polishes are renowned for being a nightmare to remove, but On A Silver Platter is the most difficult and stubborn glitter polish I’ve ever tried to remove. I do really love the prettiness of this polish, but the laborious removal has put me off ever applying this polish again.
