Given my love for nail colors, I was surprised that I did not have any Essence nail color in my stash because now that I have tried one, it is instant love.

The Brand Claims: Colour explosion! The huge colour & go range has the beloved gel-shine finish with a highly intensive shine and an extremely short drying time for perfectly polished nails in a flash. The patented quick & easy brush is particularly flat for an even easier application. The 8ml bottle has a cool essence design – with the usual colour-coded cap in the corresponding nail polish colour.

My Experience:
The color I got to try is called Juicy Love. It is a red but appears closer to fuchsia on first application. It takes 2 to 3 coats for the true color to show up. This is not much of a bother as the first coat takes less than a minute to dry and the later ones a bit longer. The applicator itself is pretty wide and covers the whole nail in less swipes.
The staying power of the nail colors does not matter to me because I believe it depends entirely on the base coat and top coat you are wearing and the frequency of your contact with water. Still, Essense Colour & Go's staying power is very amazing, about 5 days without any top or base coat. One thing that I noticed was that instead of the regular 11ml, Colour & Go carries only 8ml of the product.
All in all, Essence Colour & Go has made it to my favorites and I will definitely be buying more of Essence's nail colors.

Pros:
  • Each coat dries fairly quick.
  • Wide and sturdy applicator.
  • Doesn't chip for almost 5 days even without a base coat and a top coat.
  • Wide array of colors and finishes.
Cons:
  • Takes multiple coats for the true color to show up.
  • Contains 8ml of product rather than the regular 11ml.
Price & Availability: Essence Colour & Go retails for the price of PKR 295 (approx. $3) and are available at all leading stores across the country. You can also buy them online at Essence's store at Daraz. Join Essence Pakistan's facebook page for more information.
My Rating: 4.5/5
