Essence - A Lovely Secret

(more photos on my blog - blog link in the source link bar)

Essence Colour & Go Quick Drying Nail Polish, A Lovely Secret is a pastel lavender with a blue hue also known as periwinkle. In the bottle it has a slight pink shimmer, but when worn on the nails it is barely noticeable, even in person I couldn`t see that pretty pink shimmer (I was a tiny bit heartbroken, I love pink shimmers in non-pink polishes). This is a new shade to their Spring/Summer collection for 2012, Essence seems to change up their permanent colors every year, plus it has that catchy "NEW" sticker on it.

$.99 (on / .16 fl oz / 5 ml

The first coat is streaky, uneven and a little thin, but the second coat gives you full coverage. The brush isn`t the highest quality, but it`s high enough where it doesn`t drag the polish - you still get a smooth texture.

This polish dries to a nice shine on its own. Although it has a slight shimmer, you will most likely see it as a creme.

I added a coat of Zoya`s Armor Top Coat and it really amped up the shine on this polish. As I was photographing this polish, it caught BF`s eye and he said this looked like "a really nice color", so I think I`ll be sporting this shade more often.
