Essence Snow White TE Swatches (Part 2)

Hi guys!
Today I'm showing you the second part of my Essence Snow White Trend Edition Swatches! :) You can go here if you haven't seen the first part.
I've already showed you two of the 'Dwarfs' and two glitter toppers. Today I'll be showing you the last glitter topper and 2 of the 'Dwarfs'. :)

Thank you to Sharon who helped me get my hands on the rest of these babies! :D

If you didn't see my Aussie Christmas post yesterday, you won't know that I have kind of changed my nail shape! I rounded them a bit. Still not 100% sure how I feel about them, they might have to grow a bit more before I like them.

Dopey is a really gorgeous pale lavender with really pretty silver micro glitter. This one is probably the sheerest of the collection but I don't mind that at all. :) I think it needs to be sheer so that the micro glitter can show through the base.
3 coats, no topcoat.
Dopey - sunlight
Dopey - artificial light
Evil Queen is a chunky purple glitter in a clear base. This is made up of only large purple glitters, which I personally love! I love huge glitter pieces! The formula on this was a bit thick but not too hard to work with. The glitters did want to clump together in certain areas but it wasn't too hard to move them around.
1 coat over Dopey, no topcoat.
Evil Queen - sunlight
Evil Queen - artificial light
Grumpy is a super bright cobalt blue. This one is supposedly very similar to Nails Inc Baker Street if you want a dupe of that for a much cheaper price! :) The formula on this was great! No complaints here!
2 coats, no topcoat.
Grumpy - in the shade
Grumpy - artificial light
Happy is a butterscotch sort of yellow. Very different from every other yellow polish I've ever seen! This colour actually almost matches 'Happy' from Snow White's hat! Some of the other colours in the collection don't match the character they're named after, though. This polish was a bit thicker than I usually like, but not too bad. I'll add some thinner I think.
2 coats, no topcoat. It looked a little streaky in person, so I probably could've used a third coat, maybe.
Happy - in the shade
Happy - artificial light

Overall my favourite of these four is definitely Dopey, I love lavender colours like this! I think I need a back up of that one because I'm in love. Evil Queen has to be my favourite of the glitter toppers in this collection!

Also, a reminder! My HTF China Glaze "OMG" auction ends tonight at 11:59pm - which is about 12 hours from when I'm uploading this post :) Go and put in your bid if you're interested HERE!
