Adorned Nails: Essence Spot On



This is so not me, but I like variety. I thought I should take a short break from my usual dark and/or loud colours. It says "New" on the bottle but really, Essence Spot On has been around for a long time. I must have had this bottle for at least half a year.

The quality of Essence polishes isn't too bad, especially those from the Multi Dimension range like this one here. They don't cost much either, just €1.59 per bottle (8ml), so I can't complain.

I'm wearing two coats here. Application: Superb. Drying time: Not that fast. Durability: Average. I would describe Spot On as a crème dirty pink, a dusty rose. At times, it looks like a cross between berry and brown. Neutral and subdued, it's certainly an office-safe, meeting-safe colour. You can't go wrong with this shade.

@Appu
I'm glad you like this, Appu. Those little ones you mentioned must be from the Colour and Go range. I haven't tried those myself but they do have some pretty bright colours in the range. :)

I love the simplicity of the color! & indeed its good to try something different once in a while! The dull shine has a nice cooling effect on the senses :)

I own some Essence but I don't think I ever actually wore an Essence polish, I only use them for swatching....
Looks as a great base for stamping this one!

@PolishSis
Now, that's the hallmark of a pro - that you have Essence only for swatching! Impressed, I am! :D
