Essence of Color

Sunday, May 6, 2012

A wonderful co-conspirator in the polish realm send me some lovely Essence polishes. I had never tried Essence before and was anxious to see how these little beauties would look on my nails.


  • Ultimate Pink
  • Glamorous Life
  • Where is the party
  • Choose Me
  • Breakthrough
These are positively gorgeous! They applied wonderfully. When I applied the first coat I thought they would be rather sheer. But the second coat sealed the deal with great coverage.

The brushes were wonderful and the polishes dried relatively quickly. 

My favorite? I have no idea. I loved the glitter polishes but the cremes were amazing also.  The red looks like a creme in this photo but it has tons of micro glitters in it that shimmer and shine. Now that I have tried these I am going to have to put this brand on my stalking list.

Which of these is your favorite?

Essence Where is the party

Essence Glamorous life

Essence Breakthrough

Essence Ultimate pink
Essence Choose Me!



  1. I always look at these at Ulta, but have never picked one up. I may just have to now! Thanks:)

  2. I can't decide either! They are all so nice!

  3. I have Glamorous Life and Where is the party untried at home. Maybe I should change that! Very pretty polishes.

  4. They're all beautiful but Choose Me looks gorgeous!

  5. I am so in love with these little Essence colors! I bought a bunch of them when I made the pilgrimage to Ulta last month. I wish I could get my hands on some of the older ones. Choose Me and Glamorous life are gorgeous. I love the shimmer in them!

  6. Choose Me! is definitely my fave. How many coats did you have to do in order for it to look like that? I know the glittery ones usually require more coats of polish on the nail than nonshimmer

    1. Almost all of them were two coats. But I think the glitter ones were three. I do remember that the second coat covered quite nicely.

  7. I'm legit going to ulta after I see how my new Avon nail polishes look. I want to compare and see the difference between them. And essence is only about $1 at ulta, so we'll see how it compares to the about $3 avon polish

  8. I just got to Ulta and was able to get Choose Me!, Where Is the Party, Glamorous Life, and Glam in Blue (a light slightly shimmery blue). Can't wait to see if they're as gorgeous as your pics!


I may not always have time to respond to your comments. But I read each and every one of them.
