So, here they are, the polishes we’ve all been looking forward to – essence’s new color3 polishes, curtesy of their recent change in stock. I bought 5 of the 6 available ones, and I’ll show you these today.
The color3 polishes are supposedly 3 polishes in 2, because you can (according to essence) wear them alone or on top of each other. As one of the colours is the opaque one and the other one is a topcoat, you can wear them alone, just as you could wear any topcoat alone, but chances to get that opaque are slim. So I’m showing you the “base”colour first, and then what it looks like with the topcoat on. I used 2 coats of basecoat on each swatch.

essence “party all night long” over “shopping trip in soho”. I like this combination a lot, although it isn’t unique or special. I think I’ll grab some of my CNDs and layer them over pink, and then I’ll have the same combination.
essence “city that never sleeps” over “midnight date”. “city that never sleeps” is a flakie topcoat, green flakes in a purple jelly base. I tried swatching it on a nail wheel, and I put on 4 coats so it became somewhat opaque. Pretty, nonetheless.
essence “it’s just a little crush” over “boys are back in town”. This topcoat sparkles in blue and pink, depending on the angle the light hits. Nice, but again, not unique. But definitely a first for essence!
So, what do you think about them? Worth the fuss, or not what you expected?
