Essence colour & go nail polish in #112 Time for Romance [review w/ swatches !]
At the Bloggers' Event I was invited to
organised by PharmaMT (importers of Catrice and Essence)
we were introduced to the NEW and improved packaging of Essence nail polishes.
They hold more product now, (8ml vs 5ml)
and the packaging is more appealing.
They have reformulated the formula
so now it claims to have a gel-like finish without the need for a top coat.
They have kept the old shades,
and launched new ones too.
I personally LOVE the new packaging!
It's far more appealing
and it's still quite tiny if you like to carry nail polishes in your bag.
The fact that it has more product
doesn't really affect me
because I hardly ever manage to use the whole nail polish before it dries up.
As for the formula.
It's basically the same.
I must admit it dries a bit faster than it used to.
and seems to be glossier.
As for colour payoff,
it varies from one nail polish to another.
This one (112 Time for Romance) needed 2-3 coats.
The wand is now better as well,
At least, I like it better.
The brush seems to be made of fibre bristles and it is quite sturdy.
It isn't too big, but it's bigger,
it's also flat and a bit fancier.
I like this brush better personally.
A beautiful burgundy purple packed with gorgeous glitter and 3D effects.
I hope this post was helpful,
and till the next post,
