Swatches: New Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish

I finally found the new Essence Colour & Go polishes! The store didn't have all the shades, but I still think I managed to get some pretty ones. Can't wait to see the whole new line... until then, here are 7 of the new shades.

From L to R: Grey-t To Be Here, I'm the Boss, I'm Bluetiful, Date in the Moonlight, Chic Reloaded, Oh My Glitter, Stuck on You.

And the verdict? I absolutely adore the new bottles. They're curvy and chic and that's more than I can say about the old ones. The thing I don't like is the new brush. It's still flat, like in the old bottles, but it's wider, shorter and rounded at the end. I personally find it harder to paint my nails with the new brush. Maybe that's because I wanna be really precise with the application - some of the ladies will definitely like it for it's width.
The formula was good and most of the shades needed 2 coats for full opacity. With some of them 1 might be enough. The only exception is Oh My Glitter which is a 3 coater (in my case).

So, to sum it up - I like:
+ new bottle shape
+ 8mL bottle instead of the old 5mL one
+ interesting new colors and finishes
+ price (1,69 €)

I don't like:
- the new brush

Can you pick your favorite out of these 7 shades?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  4. Grey-t to be here looks like the dawn is broken from the vampires love LE last year.
    I like these a lot and I think I'm the boss and O my glitter are my favourites.

  5. I picked up quite a few of these yesterday, and wore Grey-t to be here. I wrote a post yesterday about it, and saying how much I LOVE the brush! But then again I love flat, wide, curved brushes.

  6. I'm not feeling the colours for some reason.

    Oh well, there'll be others :) .

    Essence promenio zastupnika za Srbiju - zato su ukinuli stalak sa posebnim lakovima na ona 2 i po mestima na kojima ih je i bilo, a i ovi obicni stalci im zvrje prazni, sa starim bocicma i one tri blede i smedje nijanse (a sa punom cenom - dakle, nije rasciscavanje pred novu kolekciju).

    Ne znam sta da ocekujem, posebno posle onoga sa promenom zastupnika u Flormarovom slucaju...

  8. I like Oh My Glitter. Pity it needs three coats for full opacity. I wish Chic Reloaded were a tad lighter. It reminds me of all those Mac Club/TF Label Whore eyeshadows.

  10. Mislim, da si kupila vse tiste, nad katerimi sem se sama navduševala. Potem sem si izbrala I'm the Boss, ampak vidim, da bo še nekaj jih moralo iti z mano, sploh Grey-t to be here me je impresioniral. Sicer so pa tudi meni nove stekleničke zelo všeč. Čopič moram pa še preizkusiti. :) Čudoviti swatchi, kot vedno. <3

    1. Ja, kot sem že rekla, trgovina ni imela vseh novih odtenkov, zato sem izbrala najbolj zanimive med tistimi, ki so bili na voljo. Sedaj opažam, da sem kupila večino mojih favoritov s preview slik. =) Še Walk on the Wild Side moram dobiti, pa sem dobra. He he

  12. Wow, I love every one of these colours! It'll be months before they get to Australia, but I'll keep an eye out for them.

  13. prekrasni su i svi redom mi trebaju :D

  14. Date in the moonlight and stuck on you are my favourites =)

  15. I really like Oh My Glitter :) Grey one looks nice to, even if I don't like grey shades on my nails ;)
    Isn't Chic Reloaded similar to Where's the party from old collection?

    1. Yes, Chic Reloaded is similar to Where's the Party. They're both green with purple flash (duochrome), but Chic Reloaded is darker and opaque in 2 coats whilst WtP needs three coats. It's definitely not the same polish.

  16. Chic reloaded je moj favorit...Zapravo od sve 44 nijanse, samo 3 su mi zasad na wishlisti :S

  17. Mene pa ne ganejo preveč :/ Hmnh..

  18. Oujea, novi čopič bo zame! :D

    Med tvojimi izbranci so mi najbolj všeč tisti temni, ampak vem, da jih sama ne bi nosila, ker bi večino časa izgledali črni. :( Me je pa na nek poseben način očaral "Grey-t to be here", ki mi deluje tako ... londonsko, sofisticirano deževen.
    In prisežem, da ni zaradi OI, ker itak nimam filinga, da se odvijajo v Londonu. :D

    1. No, vsaj za nekoga. Priznam, da sem s temi širokimi čopiči štorasta, da ni za verjet. =) Tisti iz starih Colour & Go stekleničk so bili najboljši.
      Grey-t To Be Here je res poseben. Verjetno bo postal popularen tako kot Catrice London's Weather Forecast. Tega imaš? Super sivko!

  19. O, super odtenki! Moram čimprej v izvidnico :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thanks for swatching these! When they're in the store it'll be easier to pick some now :) And I can only hope I won't dislike the brush as much as the new Catrice one then!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Woah! I've fallen in love! Can't wait for them to come out in Italy too :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sami sivi in modrikasti odtenki, ki so vsi čudoviti in že na moji WL, razen morda Chic Reloaded (duo in multichromi me nekako ne pritegnejo). Me pa Grey-t To Be Here rahlo spominja na en siv odtenek iz Vampire's Love kolekcije, z razliko, da ima tale nek roza odblesk in tisti je imel neke 'mušje flekce', drugače mi je pa baza zelo podobna

  23. I'm just watching new colors (bottle shots) and think that some of them are really interesting...Among your swatches I'd pick Stuck on You, really charming!
    I'm still afraid of new brush, I hope it's not as broad as Catrice one!

  24. Oh my glitter is adorable!! Thanks for the awesome swatches!!

  25. I'm really happy that they keept the colored cap because it makes it soooo much easy to store. It's actually the only brand i've seen that does that and i love it.

    1. I think the colored cap is a great thing as well. More brands should do this. I agree.

  26. The whole 7 could go for me! They're all somehow catchy. They're calling my name...
    BTW I'm still afraid of the brush. I need to try it myself, the old one was perfect to me :-(

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm one of the few who likes the old design of bottles (this one looks cheap to my eyes), but... Who knows how long will we have to wait to get them in Italy? I NEED new Essence colours *_*

    ReplyDelete
  28. Chick Realoaded and I'm Bluetiful...I gotta get those *__*

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm Bluetiful and Oh My Glitter seems really nice :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I have and am wearing date in the moonlight. It's a stunner!!!!!!! =0) it's like a greed out navy type color and the shimmer is more glass fleck than glitter - in blue, green, and purple!!! I swear its so gorgeous!!! I also love I'm The boss! It's got so many different shapes of the silver-y shimmer/glitter... It's also very special. WAY TO GO ESSENCE!!! These new C&G polished ROCK!!!!! These pix rock, too btw.. =0)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm kinda disappointed by the new line. I think the brush is really annoying (to big) and the price is something I dislike, just like the colors. It's actually the first time I dislike new Essence products.
    But I love your swatches!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. oh my! I absolutely adore those new shades!
    soem have very unexpected finish

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh My Glitter looks like everything I wanted A Lovely Secret (from the old Color&Go line) to look like. Awesome swatches :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Chic Reloaded is perfect, it's one of my favorite polishes lately. The rest of the collection disappointed me, not my type of colors. I agree about the new brush.

  35. all the colors in australia now - priceline has them
