When in drugstore, I always stop by Essence cosmetics‘ counter and take a look at their nail polish section. I own many nail polishes by this brand and I’ll keep buying them because I have no objections to their quality.
Colour range is great, and they often add new beautiful trendy colours and finishes to the collection. I think everyone could find a colour for themselves. With majority of Essence’s nail polishes, you’ll need 2 coats of polish to get complete colour opacity, without your nails showing through, but some of them (darker and intensive colours mostly) need only 1 coat.
Most Essence Colour & Go nail polishes have high shine finish, very good longevity (although, I always use base coat and top coat when doing my nails so it’s individual) and really affordable price (cca 1,5€) for the 8 ml bottle.
This time, while browsing Essence’s counter, I stopped by a beautiful dark purple polish infused with dark magenta/violet microglitter. Purple lovers, watch out! You’ll hardly resist it.
I couldn’t, and that’s the story how Essence Colour & Go 193 Best Dressed nail polish came home with me.
It’s quite hard to capture what it looks like on nails because the colour changes according to how glitter catches the light. However, it is a vampy, gothic dark purple shade, and microglitter makes it look lit from within. Very pretty. This is how it looks like in shadow and in direct sunlight.
Give it a look in person if you can! Also, give me your recommendations for purple nail polishes, please
