What do I think? Well, Essence, leaving the silly name aside, I think this sweet little polish was a bloody brilliant buy, that’s what I think. A creamy orangey coral, in the bottle this has a fine gold microshimmer that is virtually invisible on the nail. The colour is a wee bit brighter than it looks in the bottle, and it goes on a little streaky, but for an obscenely tiny amount of money what you get here is an almost identical dupe of Chanel’s Orange Fizz -- a polish I occasionally visit in Brown Thomas but never quite got around to taking home with me.
Don’t believe me? Check out this great comparison post by Short n Chic.
You’ll find Essence in selected pharmacies along with larger Dunnes and Penneys shops. The Colour & Go polishes are €1.29 per bottle.
