First Polish Review

If you haven't noticed I have come to love Essence Nail Polish!  I love the colors, the formula and the fast drying time.  Plus they are very inexpensive.  The only disappointment is that in the US we can only purchase the mini bottles! :(  Last Tuesday I contacted Essence to see if they would be willing to send my some polish for review and guess what I came home to on Thursday?




This lovely package was sitting on my kitchen table!  And look at what was inside!


I did have a small bit of disappointment because right away I knew that I already owned one of the samples, Wake Up!. I thought that I also already owned the yellow one however on closer inspection I saw that it was a shimmery yellow!  I couldn't wait to try them out!





Just look at these beauties!  Both polishes had everything that I love about this polish.  The application was flawless, 2 coats, the colors are amazing and they dried quite fast. It is hard to see the shimmer in the yellow in the pictures but believe me it is there and it really makes this yellow stand out!  And look at that blue!  I am very happy with these polishes and they further add to my love of Essence Nail Polish.

Of course I am not one to walk around with just a plain polish so I added a stamp using the opposite colors and RA103.  It looks very 80s to me!

    1. I have seen a larger variety of Essence polishes on other blogs that are not available in the US. That's what I was talking about. :)

    2. they are from limited editions or from Multi Dimension line, which was discontinued. Colour&Go are all only 5ml :)

  6. The Limited Edition polishes tend to be a slight bit bigger :) I love their stuff too!

  7. Thats so great they sent you polishes! I've only been able to find them at ulta too, but its kind of a drive and when I've gone there it's been so shopped over theres barely anything on the shelve :/ So I've never had the opportunity to try them. That blue looks amazing tho!

    1. I order them online, because of the same reason! The whole rack usually has nothing on it!

  8. At least you can get mini bottles. Us poor sucks in Canada are stuck without them, and also without shipping for Red Angel plates. And Konad costs a fortune up here.
