For the past couple of months I've been trying out new colours on my nails and I've fallen in love with pastel and bright shades. And then I've found Essence and decided to try one of its nail polish. Of course I went for a pastel lilac one and not only because it's pastel and bright but also because it has the best name in the history of the best names of nail polishes: "Hello Mashmallow!" How cute is that? The lilac nail polish also comes with a subtle blue shimmer. It is almost invisible but it makes the nails look really great when they're in the sunlight. I'm so in love with the shade I've been re-painting it on my nails for about three weeks!
Essence claims its range called "Colour & Go" has a gel-shine finish and I can partly agree with that. I would rather say it has a medium shine finish. The nail polish dries quite quickly which is good because if you want to have a opaque bright colour on your nails you have to put at least 3 coats. With a nail polish drying fast, the layering takes much less time. Applying the nail polish is very easy as it is equipped with an amazingly angled and quite wide brush. As for the longevity, "Hello Marshmallow" wears for about 5 days without any chipping, which for a cheap nail polish like that is pretty well.
I'm definitely going to be try more of Essence nail polish. I'm definitely going to go for a pale pink one called "Sweet As Candy" or a coral one called "Off To Miami!"
