I first spotted these cute bottles of color at my local Ulta and thought they were a new kind of brand, not soon enough did I realize they were a favorite overseas.....for a few years... oops :) Ok, but I admit that I wanted to find out more about the brand. I heard from very few bloggers that colour and go collection was meh...but to me, me thinking it was a new brand, haha, I actually liked the colors....At first I picked up only 1 color (Get the Fever)......but later returned to add 6 more to my collection....
I love the array of colors they offer...not only are they priced pretty good, 99 cents per bottle, but they are perfect in 2 coats, which in the world of nail lacquer addicts is good, really good :)
So, I tried out the Essence Colour and Go nail polish for the first time using Get the Fever, a rich, warm tangerine creme color....It was perfect in 2 coats and finished shiny, not streaky, and was smooth. Next, I moved on to the color What do you think? which is a creme apricot coral color which dries sort of like a orange-creamsicle color, it too was perfect in 2 coats. My final color test out was with No More Drama, a light pastel purple creme, to me resembles OPI Puerta Valarta Violeta. This color has outstanding purple hues without being too white nor too purply, it was the perfect pastel purple. Perfect in 2 coats.
So far so good......

Buy again? Yes
Pros: Fair color selection, smooth application, fast dry time, lasting quality good, fair price - 99 cents per .16 fl oz.*
*if regular bottles are usually .5 fl oz that would mean a full bottle of Essence would be about $3, which is a really good price!
Cons: only that the small bottle holds .16 fl oz, So you'll have to keep buying replacements when you run out....regular NP bottles hold .5 fl oz.
Scale of 1 to 10: I give this polish a 9!!!
If you like Essence nail polish, which is your favorite color?
:) Have a great weekend girls!!
