I regret buying them though, because regardless of basecoat, topcoat or whatever, they chip before the day is over. Just poor quality. But, definitely a better price-quality ratio than most drug store polishes!
I use them as craft paint now. Works great.
One of the best nail polishes I've tried!
Favourite nail polish when Im just on the go! It applies so smoothly, it's the perfect consistency for me, the brush is just does it for my nails and its dries fairly quick. I'm so happy there are good quality products out there that are inexpensive, this is definitely a good buy and worth purchasing again! :)
The colour has great pigmentation, but it's texture becomes quite sticky just after one or two uses. However, for being so cheap, you can't go wrong!
Better than many expensive brands
I love these to start with because the colors are great and the bottles are small which means they don't take up as much room in my polish collection. I almost never finish a full sized bottle of polish anyways.
The actual texture (is that the right word?) and brush of the polish make for the EASIEST application I experience- along with Revlon and OPI. This is MILES better than Sinful Colors or China Glaze which are notoriously finicky for me. The brush is really good quality, not like the Wet N Wild Spoiled/Megalast brushes. It reminds me of the other Wet N Wild ones in the thin rectangular bottles.
Bottom Line: REALLY GOOD!
I have about 10 of these!
Bought these at the local Shopper's Drug Mart for my daughter. She likes the crazy colours and I like the price. Well, I have used all the colours we bought and I have not been disappointed. I am a Shellac, OPI, Essie wearer normally, but the budget has been tight so these have fit the bill. I tried the first one when I want a dupe for Essie "Turks and Caicos". The colour I found is closer to Audrey by China Glaze but still looks great with an application of 2 coats. For less than $2 I can splurge and buy several colours at the same time. Be sure to topcoat!
Spring/Summer 2012 shades ROCK!
I received a few new shades from Essence's Spring/Summer 2012 collection, and the formulations are so much better than the polish I had purchased last year. Even the brushes seem to work better. Either my 2011 polish was a dud, or Essence has stepped up their nail polishes! The brush isn't the highest quality, but it's high enough where it doesn't drag the polish - you still get a smooth texture.
The shades I have in the photo are A Lovely Secret, Glamorous Life and Walk On Air.
Look forward to buying more.
I got my first Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish a couple of weeks ago for my 6 year old daughter because it was tiny and it was cheap. Only 89 cents! I used it today just because I needed a pink nail polish for my Pink Wednesday blog post and I used hers in Ultimate Pink. Loved it! It dried so fast and the color was so vivid. It was great. Two coats was all it took to get even, opaque coverage. There were so many colors to choose from so I definitely will be purchasing some more.
I have a box full of these polishes! ^_^
They're cheap, easy to apply (some of them just 1 coat), they've really good and precise brush, the range of colours is crazy and they look good for days!
They work great applied alone or used for nail arts, they're really easy to wash off (I never had leftovers, not even with reds)... just LOVE THEM! ^_^
