Essence A Lovely Secret

I hope you're enjoying your Saturday! Today I have a gorgeous color to show you that I've been dying to own for awhile. How satisfying is it to finally find something you've been wanting.

Essence A Lovely Secret is a lavender creme with subtle purple shimmer that flashes bright purple. It is hard to describe in one sentence. At first glance, it appears to be a light purple creme. Then you see it almost looks marbled, rather than filled with shimmer. The purple is matte and does not shimmer. Instead it adds amazing depth. Its not really visible in the picture until you click on it. The larger version gives you an idea of what I mean. On top of this unique depth, when the light hits this polish, the purple suddenly flashes bright and shimmering. Its very visible in the bottle and harder to capture on the nail. 

The application is great, as I've come to expect from Essence. This is two coats and completely opaque. 

Essence Colour & Go retails for $1 at Ulta, H-E-B, and FredMeyer.


  1. This is one of my favorite Essence polishes!

  2. I've never tried an Essence polish, but this is such a beautiful colour! Great colour for every day :)


  3. Lovely shade. I see so many things I would pick up if we had Essence anywhere near where I live. Maybe someday it will drift into my area.

  4. Essence is amazing! I wish we got more of their collections here.
