Essence Colour & Go Quick Drying Nail Polish

Monday, 27 February 2017

I’ve been using the Essence range of nail polish since highschool because it was always incredibly affordable and they often offered so many colours to choose from. I feel like their quality has substantially improved over the years, where they’ve definitely kept track on trends and created a brush and formula that works really well together.

The price:
So the Essence nail polish retails for R29.95 (which is incredibly affordable, considering I’ve never actually run out of a colour I’ve purchased).

The formula:
The Essence nail polish formula is quite thick and usually dries pretty fast. With some colours, I can get away with one coat, whereas with others I just have to do two coats. On my nails, I can go about 5 days without the nail polish chipping off (which is really awesome). I find what helps is preppy your nails before applying the nail polish, by buffing them and applying a base coat.

These are my favourite brand nail polishes, simply because they work for me in both budget and quality. I haven’t had any issues with the product and I now probably own about 30 colours.
