Estessimo Tins Nail Polish Haul

March 7, 2011

At the recent Beauty Asia trade show, I saw a good range of Estessimo Tins nail lacquer. Made in Japan, this brand is popular for its sparkly and holographic colours that produce beautiful gradating nail designs, among other artistic nail creations. Its name on the bottle (‘TiNS’) is often mistaken as ‘SNiL’, thanks to the slanting font and cut-off ‘T’! :D

At slightly under S$16 per bottle, they weren’t the cheapest polishes at the fair. However, their unique sparkle and shine impressed me and I couldn’t resist hauling a few bottles.

I purchased:

  • Tins Color in 314 Swan Lake – An opalescent teal with a reflective purple sheen, the duo-chromed nature of this gorgeous nail shade made it difficult to pass up. Green + purple = ♥!
  • Tins Color in 057 The Lucky Star Jet – At first glance, it seems like a simple glittery silver but a closer look reveals coloured sparkles, of which the largest are blue in colour; adding a shot of interest to the enamel.
  • Tins Color in 058 The Frozen Star Icon – A twinkly rose beige with multi-coloured shimmer, this would be excellent as a base for a gradating nail look.

I also snagged Tins Color in 088 Miss Photogenic, a limited edition sparkle polish from November 2010. It is apparently infused with genuine sterling silver lamé (wow!) and only 2000 bottles were produced. It has since sold out in Japan. The distributor revealed that its retail price was S$60 but I was able to purchase this at only S$20. ;)

    Very pretty! any pics of these polishes on your nails to share? I’ve recently been getting into nails too, and was sad to have missed the fair. That said, I picked up a couple bottles of Orly Cosmic FX from Far East yesterday and can’t stop staring at the sparkle!
