Essence - 11 Vrienden (= 11 Friends)

This summer we had the Soccer World Cup and Essence had some polishes in the color of our national flag: red, white and blue. This blue polish is called 11 vrienden, wich means 11 friends, because a soccerteam has 11 players. I don't know if players on the team are actually friends though.

We hadden natuurlijk de voetbal wereld kampioenschappen deze zomer en essence heeft toen 3 lakjes uitgebracht in de kleuren van onze vlag. Deze blauwe lak heet 11 vrienden, maar ik vraag me af of de 11 spelers wel echt vrienden zijn.
Dark but extremely bright blue. Believe me, it's way more pretty and darker and bright in real life. These pictures are the best I could do, my camera freaked over his polish.

Donkerblauw, maar wel heel fel. geloof me als ik zeg dat deze lak donkerder, feller en mooier is in het echt. Ik heb mijn best gedaan op de foto's maar dit is het beste wat ik ervan kon maken, mijn camera flipte van deze kleur.
It's a very smooth jelly polish, application was great, the bottle is very small, but the brush is wide and spreads out nice over the nail. I don't know if I used 3 or 4 coats...I believe this was 4 coats.

Het is een hele fijne jelly lak, opbrengen ervan ging fijn, het flesje is erg klein maar het borsteltje is best nog wijd en spreidt uit over vrijwel de hele nagel. Ik weet niet meer of ik nou 3 of 4 lagen heb gebruikt...volgens mij waren dit er 4
I used tiny golden balls and cute small flowers which I gently pressed into the wet polish.
My colleague Suus brought those ans some other nailart stuff for me as a souvenir from her holiday.
These pictures are without topcoat.

Ik heb wat kleine gouden balletjes en schattige kleine bloemetjes voorzichtig in natte nagellak gedrukt.
Mijn collega Suus heeft deze en wat ander nailart spullen voor me meegenomen als souvenir van haar vakantie.
Ik draag er geen topcoat overheen
These are just swatches, so I don't know if these tiny balls stay on well if you were them for one or more days. I can imagine they stick out alot so you'll loose them easily while digging for something in your bag if you've lost soething in it again

Dit zijn alleen swatches dus ik weet niet of die ieniemienie balletjes goed blijven zitten als je ze voor één of meer dagen draagt. Ik kan me zo voorstellen dat ze nogal uitsteken en dat je er makkelijk wat verliest als je in je tas aan het graven bent omdat je er weer eens iets niet in kan vinden.
Thank you so much for watching
I hope for all my interational readers that you have better weather then we have here in Holland.
