Essence Colour & Go ~ Passion for fashion


Essence Colour & Go ~ Passion for fashion
Vivid purple crème


Purple is my favourite colour when it comes to nail polishes. Not pale purples so much, but deep, warm, vivid purples, they just rock my world.

This purple is from Essence’s “Colour & Go” series and is called “Passion for Fashion”.

The formula was tricky to begin with. Thin coats just don’t work with this polish, but make nice, thick layers and it works a treat. And it’s true what it says on the bottle: It’s a quick drying nail polish.

I applied two coats and then I was satisfied. Total opaqueness and total beauty! The colour is even prettier than it is in the bottle!

Here are two coats – no top coat yet:


Isn’t it just beautiful?

I couldn’t leave it like that though. I never leave crèmes as they are. I stamped on it using Konad’s plate M69 and Essence stampy polish in silver.

Here shown with a layer of Poshé top coat to seal it up:


I say it’s a must have if you dig purple polishes!!


Opacity: 9/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Durability: 8/10
Value for money: 8/10
Overall: 8.5/10
