essence Fall/Winter 2012 Collection

essence Fall/Winter 2012 Collection is available now.  Per essence, "essence is presenting a completely NEW and innovative colour & go nail polish range." This new collection per essence features 18 new trendy colors, brilliant gel-shine effects, fast drying formula, long lasting and perfect coverage.

essence colour & go polishes are free of harmful ingredients and come in new 8 ml bottles. The tops of the bottle match the color of the lacquer. How awesome is that? Love it!! essence colour & go also has a new patented professional brush that allows for better steak free coverage! They now retail for a suggested retail price of $1.99.

Take a look at the colors I'm going to review today:

From left to Right:
Sweet as Candy, Ultimate Pink, Grey-t to be Here
Fame Fatal and Break Through

Fame Fatal is a Deep, rich, gorgeous red. This reminds me of a blood red. This applied with no issues and the color pay off is amazing. It's an amazing red creme and will give Zoya Rekha (here) a run for the money. The new brushes on these essence colour to go is fabulous. It is similar to the Sally Hansen spatula brushes. The shine on these are amazing as well and the formula is excellent. 

Looks like a gel finish! 

Grey-t to be Here is a a normal grey color with a surprise pink shimmer to it! Grey-t to be Here separates itself from the rest of the grey cremes out there! This one applies great!! I had no application or formula issues. I really liked this one. I, also, received a lot of compliments on this and how the pink pops in the sunlight!

The pink shimmer in this Grey is Amazing!!

Break Through is a dark pinky-purple. I had some issues trying to get it to photograph the correct color. This is the closest I could get with out totally screwing up the pictures. This polish is another amazing one! I can't say enough about the new essence colour & go polishes!!

Appears just a tad darker than in person.

Ultimate Pink is a bright hot pink creme polish! This like a lot of the others are a surprise to see in a Fall/Winter Collection, but I love it. We don't have to be drab and wear all browns and cream colors in the Fall. Having pops of color always looks good. I'm really loving this one! There were no issues at all and the color pay off is gorg!!

Sweet as Candy is a very soft sheer pink color. This polish is very elegant and sophisticated and perfect for the office. This is a girly color as well. It does remind me of Dr.'s Remedy Purity Pink (here). Sweet as Candy is gorgeous and has no issues with formula or application.

This creme gives the look of a gel finish as well.

Overall, I am really impressed with essence. They make high-quality products with a low price! That's always a plus in my book. The colors here are amazing and the formula and application is something to rave about. I really like these polishes. For more information visit their website here.
essence also has a Facebook for North America here.

North America: essence is sold at ULTA, HEB, Fred Meyer and was launched in Canada this March. In Canada essence can be found in over 900 Shoppers Drug Mart stores.
