Essence Colour and Go - quality and value plus

Thursday, May 31, 2012

 I am excited to share two Essence Colour and Go nail polishes with you. 

Essence is known for high-quality, on-trend products at incredible prices. Glamorous Life and Luxury Secret are two of the 22 colors available in the Colour and Go line and I can't wait to tell you all about them. So let's talk polish!

Glamorous Life is a glorious shade of red that leans toward a fuchsia shade. It has tons of micro-flakes giving it a shimmer and shine that make me want to dress up and go out on the town. The photos of both colors are with two coats.

 The camera just couldn't seem to catch the shimmery prisms so I headed outside to try a shot in full sun.

You can barely see the nail through the polish. Another coat would have provided complete opaqueness but I was happy with it after two coats. 

Luxury Life is a gorgeous steely, gun metal gray. Two coats of this silky color provided complete opacity.

One more test - I love to use my stamper but finding polishes that stamp well can sometimes be difficult. Does Essence Colour and Go work well with a stamper?

It worked wonderfully! It is nice to add a polish to my collection that works for stamping. 

Essence Colour and Go polishes boast a quick drying time and in fact they dried within minutes.The brush is flat and makes application a breeze. The colors are rich and vibrant.

Bottom line: Essence is a quality polish at a value price making it a brand anyone can, and should, add to their collection.

Essence Colour and Go is 4-free and costs $0.99 making it quite the value. Learn more about the Essence product line and see the rest of the colors at

Essence is available at ULTA, HEB, Fred Meyer and recently launched into Canada where is is featured in more than 900 Shoppers Drug Mart Stores. Essence is distributed in 55 countries.

Happy Polishing!
