Essence Spam

Hey everyone! Today's a mass swatch post on the brand Essence, which I've showed you two of them before - Surferama and Hang Loose. But here's some more from their other collections, etc.

First is Essence Color&Go Absolutely Stylish, which is a chocolate brown creme with green shimmer. The green is more noticeable in the bottle rather on the nails though, which sucks because I haven't seen such a combination of color & shimmer like this. It took only 2 coats to be opaque to reach bottle color and I added top coat as well :D

Next up is Essence Humpty Dumpty from their Fairytale Collection, which is a metallic purple silver. It looks awesome and I only needed 2 coats. :) The only thing is the weird bottle shape, it's fatter but shorter, lol.

This is Essence Multi Dimension in Purple Cherry, which is a glossy dark purple creme. It took 2 coats to reach bottle color and it's darker IRL, almost like a glossy black creme... same goes for the next polish too. :\

This is Essence Multi Dimension in Midnight Rocker, which is a dark navy blue glossy creme. This, like Purple Cherry took 2 coats to reach bottle color and it is darker - like a glossy black creme IRL. At first I almost couldn't see the difference between PC & MR when I swatched them until I was resizing the pictures.

The final Essence of the day is Essence Multi Dimension in Must Have which is a charcoal silver shimmer. It's basically the typical charcoal silver shimmer - I remember swatching a Sinful Colors one and another similar polish would be Misa Wishing on a Star that I swatched a long time ago (lol). This was 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat.

Hope you all enjoyed and happy polishing! :)


  1. Oh my goodness I love all of these, Essence is really rockin' with the colors. Have you found a place in NYC that sells Essence?

  2. GothamPolish: Unfortunately, I haven't found a place that sells them - I got these from swaps :\. If anything you could always order from ulta.com because I've seen Essence polishes on their website :D I haven't ordered yet because I'm broke T_T
