Essence Color & Go polish in Break Through

*I won this as part of a giveaway that was hosted on Twitter by the brand. I was not asked for a post, but wanted to share a cheap thrill*

Essence Color & Go Break Through #132

Essence Color & Go

Many moons ago, Essence had a giveaway on Twitter. I won. I was excited. I mean is anyone not excited when they win something?

Well, there were a bunch of new things that I won, that was to replace some of the items that were in the current line (at the time).

The nail polish was one of them. Personally I loved the little cylindrical bottles of polish they had before, but I do like the idea of the reformulated line.

By the time I applied the first coat of polish on the last nail of one hand, the first finger had dried enough that I could touch it, and I wouldn’t see finger prints. I mean in that sense, it does satisfy the ‘Go’ part of the name. The time to dry does get longer with extra coats, and I would suggest that you let them dry well enough before you go ahead with another coat.

What I love about the line is the brush. Now, I didn’t capture it enough, but one of the things that make nail polish application a breeze, is the brush shape. You want one that flares in a way that it compliments your nail bed. That way you can follow the curve, and hopefully avoid polish all over the cuticles, and surrounding skin area. So that is why I was pretty happy with the cut of the brush. It flares rather nicely, and makes getting the right shape easier.

It also helps that the line is relatively cheap, and there are a bunch of colours that you can explore.

Wear was pretty decent considering it doesn’t cost very much ($2.49 if I remember correctly at SDM). I would suggest that despite the fact that it is super glossy on its own, to apply your go to chip-free top coat. For me, that would be the use of Gelous, which seems to be working quite well for me at the moment. Yay!

I should look in to checking out a few more colours soon :)
