Okay, for some reason this name cracks me up. I mean who talks like that? When people are looking for parties, they don't say "Where is the party?" they say "Bro, where's that awesome party goin' on?"

Where Is the Party makes me think of a really proper British person wandering around nightclubs and walking up to people with a map saying "Excuse me, good sir/madam, where is the party?" The fact that it's all capitalized makes it sound even more stilted in my head.

Anyway...
This is Essence Where Is the Party?

This is two coats. As you might be able to tell, this is a duochrome. I almost dropped to my knees and cried when I found this in my Ulta because their Essence selection sucks. All they carry is the Colour & Go's, and they usually only have like five of them in stock. I had given up hope of ever finding this but lo, there it was! I'm still tempted by Choose Me every time even though I already have Zoya Charla (which Choose Me is a dupe for). I'll probably cave eventually.

Anyway, this is a purple/greyish/green duochrome. It's very pretty. Kind of like Scherer Chameleon Calypso except darker and more purpley instead of pink. Also, this one doesn't need to be layered over black. Though I wonder if that would have any effect... *ponders*

Anywho, the formula was nice and I think maybe I built this one up too much because I'm feeling kinda "meh" about it. It could be just because I was having a kind of blah day though, I'll have to give it another chance.

So tell me: Where is the party?

  1. Yeah, you gotta tell me where is the party!!

    I love the shade of this polish! I have Chose Me but still haven't got the chance to try it;;

  2. I always think the party is wherever I am! My Ulta sucks big time. It doesn't have many brands outside OPI, china glaze and Essie and of course Ulta. I rarely go there for my polish needs. I'm an online shopper!

  3. looks ok, but I skipped this one because it seems too frosty in all the swatches I've seen. Now I'm kind of debating in my head again. I have over 40 shades from this line and not this one... hmm.

  5. @Nailderella: OMG! Try it soon! It looks gooorgeous.

    @Fingers: Online shopping scares me 0.o I hate shipping prices!

    @hermetic: It's pretty nice! I would say get it if you like duochromes. It wasn't very frosty to me. :)

    @Holly: Thank you!

  9. Lol, I love your intro.

    And I've been avoiding Ulta for exactly this purpose...I do not want to be tempted by all of the neat little polish brands :P

  11. This kinda reminds me of Chanel's Black pearl but this has purple under tones while Black pearl has green undertones.
