Essence nail polishes

This is my little collection of Essence 'colour & go' polishes. Essence is a European brand, and I've never seen it sold in the U.K. in the usual make-up stores. However, my local chemist has a great range of their products, very obscure! The entire range is really inexpensive, the nail polishes sell for only £1.09, and they're actually lovely nail polishes, they all look great with two coats, and they don't chip for a good few days. 

From left to right:
61. fame fatal; a lovely rich red.

87. passion for fashion; looks blue in the photo but is actually a bright violet colour.

48. meet me now!; is a beautiful dusky mulberry colour. definitely my favourite.

01. cotton candy; nearly white with a tiny hint of pink, comes out almost translucent on the nails.

05. coffee to go; light beige with a hint of sparkle

07. cafe ole; nude with a little hint of shimmer

71. trendsetter; a creamy greyish brown


  1. Wow! They are a bargain! I love cheap nail-varishes, they just do the job right!
    Loving the cafe ole colour :) xx

  2. I know, Barry M & Essence all the way! I've compared these to some of my china glaze polishes and surprisingly they're so much better, and 6 times cheaper!
    Just checked out your blog, I love your style! :)
