Essence - Passion for Fashion

Finally! I got a new Essence shade. This one is from a permanent line of Colour & Go polishes, so I think it won't be that hard for you to get it. There's just one thing I have to mention. This polish photographs badly. It's nothing like on these photos in real life. It's a true blurple creme, similar to Models Own Blue Gem and Nails Inc Belgrave Place. But only similar to and not a dupe of those two.

THIS is how it looks like. Well, the closest I could get to the real color. Isn't it amazingly beautiful?

Although you might think this polish is blue, it's clearly purple. The most perfect blurple (but still more on the purple side) I've seen so far. Yep, I think it's better than Blue Gem and Belgrave Place. It applies nicely and it need 2-3 coats. It all depends on the first coat - if it's thick enough, you can get away with two coats, and if it's thin, you'll probably need to apply three coats. I wish it was a definite 2-coater, but for a color like this, I can't complain too much. It's a definite winner in my book.

  4. Guess what's on my nails right now! ;)
    Your pictures are gorgeous, but the color is indeed much more purple. Either way, it's so pretty I don't want to get it off.

    1. I'd say it's cool toned. But it's the kind of color that would suit almost everyone.

  14. Considering I'm a purple freak... The moment I saw this post I literally rushed to the nearby store selling Essence. Too bad we don't have this one in Russia, at least in the stores I visited. ): I bought Break Through instead to satisfy my lemming, which looked much purple-r in store lighting, but as I came back I was disappointed how pink it looked. Still not a bad shade, but not quite what I wanted. Is this shade a new one or was it around for quite a while? Because it's freaking gorgeous, just the perfect shade of purple.

  16. What I said about Let's Get Lost applies here, too :) .

    Too bad our Essence stands are depleted.
