3 new Essence Colour & Go Polishes!



Hi girls! Yesterday I went to Kruidvat, the place where the sell Essence and Catrice, and guess what I found? New Essence goodies! I grabbed 3 new Colour & Go colors, and 4 of the Colour 3 (double ended) polishes. Today I'll be showing the Colour & Go ones :).
The first one is also the one I think is most special. This is 3 coats of A Lovely Secret. The consistency kinda felt like waterbased paint or something, you have to be careful applying this one or it'll end up pooling your cuticles. It isn't majorly patchy though like most pastels. What makes this one stunning is the darker purpler shimmer and the pink flecks that, unfortunately, show up less on the nail than in the bottle but luckily still do a bit. This polish kinda looks like a grey melange shirt to me in structure or something. I don't know, hard to explain! I do like it a lot :).


Next up is Glamorous Life. Most people have trouble picking up purples, I have major trouble picking up pinks. I really would love to have some daylight bulbs, maybe that'll work better.


Anyway, I needed 3 thick coats for this one on my see-through swatchicle, but just 2 on my nails. I don't have much white on my nails and the sparkle in this polish is kinda heavy, so even though the base is a true jelly I still liked the result at 2. With longer nails this might be more of a problem though.



Then there is I Want That!, a more bubblegum pink than shown here. Again, hard time capturing this one.


The shimmer is really pretty and it also covers ALMOST in 1 coat. Nice! Nice consistency, flowy but slightly thick so it will not pool your cuticles like a bish. Also shiny and that shimmer makes it stand out a bit more. Perfect for the toes in summer I think!




























All in all 3 nice new polishes, I haven't seen the complete new line since I need a big display for that, but hopefully I will tomorrow.

How do you like these so far? Anything you must have?

  2. Those are all nice, actually.  A Lovely Secret is my favorite--wonder if they'll send it over here to Ulta.

  6. These are all so pretty!  The first one looks like one of the new OPI colors.  And the last has to be my favorite! I hope these colors come to the US!

  7. These are so lovely. It's a shame that my local ULTA hasn't restocked the Essence display in several weeks.

  12. Yes not in color since it's a true lilac but the finish looks like two of those Holland polishes! If they don't, maybe we can arrange a swap sometime :).

  14. These are all really pretty!! I Want That is my kind of color.  I wish I had easier access to Essence.  They have some great polishes.
