Essence - Pink&Proud

Hello everyone!

Today I want to share with you a polish from my last shopping trip.

Essence Colour & Go - pink & proud (154) is a metallic lilac creme polish with a silver shimmer. The formula is good and application easy. It was opaque in 2 coats although there was still some VNL when holding my hand against the light. That is why I applied a third coat to see if there was any difference, wich there's not. :-)

As you can see in the pictures above, there are some visible brushstrokes, but they did not bother me that much. I still wanted to try to level them out with topcoat and did a little comparison there.

On my pinkie and ringfinger I used essence gel-look plumping top coat XXXL volume.
On my middlefinger and pointer I used Seche Vite Dry Fast Topcoat and on my thumb I used essence studio nails all in one complete care.
I think the shimmer is very nice
You can really see the metallic finish in this shot and the brushstrokes are nearly gone!
I think that Seche Vite and the essence all in one worked best. You can hardly see those brushstrokes anymore.
I really like this colour on me, but I think it will look even better with a tan.

What do you think of this polish? Do you like the metallic shimmer?


  1. I'm not a huge fan of metallics but this lilac is super appealing! Really goes with your skin tone :)

    1. Thank you Mili! I also don't like them that much, because of the brushstrokes. But with a good topcoat they are wearable! Btw: checked your blog. ❤️ it!
