You Big Flirt! Ralph Lauren The Big Pony Fragrance Collection For Women essie Sensual Set #2 Review, Photos, Swatches

This spring, Ralph Lauren and essie are getting on board the matchy-matchy train! The two big brands have created four limited edition fragrance and nail sets available now in Canada. The sets come in two formats:

  • 30 ml fragrance, 50g body mist & essie nail polish ($47 exclusively at Jean Coutu in Quebec) — the one I’m showing here!
  • 50 ml fragrance & essie nail polish ($67 available at The Bay and Sears)

I received set #2 for the Sensual Woman. She’s pink, flirty and 100% fabulous. :)

Appealing to the sensuality in every woman, #2 carries a sensual fragrance that could only be bottled in pink. Accessorize the feminine hue with a few criss-cross lines, reminiscent of laced ribbons.

essie Polish in #2 Pink is a fuchsia creme. I found this to be on the thick side. One coat gives great coverage, but I decided to go with two to cover some uneven spots. Inspired by the nail art created by nail art Rita Remark created for the collection (more on that later!), I tried my hand at nail art myself: polka dots!

I paired Pink #2 with a red, essie Polish in A-List. Cute, no? I think it perfectly suits the sensual woman this set represents.

When one is a beauty blogger and not specifically a nail blogger, she must improvise on how to show off the nails in a non-macro setting. Watch and learn. Clockwise from top left: “The runway model”, “The fake laugh”, “The come hither, not to be confused with the finger”, “The oops I did it again!”

Unleash your inner geek, girls! Life’s too short to be cool. Just have fun with it. :)

The Ralph Laurent Pink #2 fragrance is “a floriental fruity with the key ingredients of cranberry & tonka mousse.” It’s a light, fresh fragrance that is perfect for the warm summer months, when you don’t want to smell like you’re wearing a perfume at all. I don’t usually wear fruity scents, but the floriental notes in this balances the fragrance nicely so you don’t walk around smelling like sweet fruit. Glitter Geek likes! :)

Just grin and spray it on. Just don’t eat it like I did in this photo. I should’ve closed my mouth, LOL!

Aim lower, Geeks! Not at your face!

For these limited edition collections, Rita Remark, lead nail artist for essie Canada, created four nail looks to go with the personality of each Big Pony set. Which one is your favourite?

I’m biased, but I like #2 the best! Here’s a tutorial Rita Remark did at FASHION magazine, highlighting the nail look for the #2 set!

    Beautiful, Arianne! I love how you matched your lips and nails. Beautiful color! YSL really makes great fuschias. Do you recommend any fuschia lipsticks by Chanel? :) For Asian NC25 coloring with yellow undertones. Thanks!

    omg I love what you did with this post, too adorable! My personal favorite: “The come hither, not to be confused with the finger.” LOL totally thought it was a very seductive version of giving the finger at first.

      Hahaha seductive flip off, I love it MM!

    Haha your snapshots are super cute :) I’m pretty impatient with nail polish application (even my most patient looks pretty bad compared to all the amazing nail-painting-guru-experts-etc out there) so I usually spend forever trying to find the right angle to show my nail polish swatches
