Finally! Essence Colour and change swatches

12:24 AM colorfulbottle 21 Comments

Today I'm finally showing you Essence colour  change swatches I bought recently =)

I bought 3, there are 4 in this line, but the orange one didn't seem attractive enough so it stayed on the shelf =)

The first one I swatched  was unexpected galaxy because I thought it will have matte finish, but instead it surprised me with a lovely metallic finish.
I applied only one coat and it was completely opaque, so  I had to check if it stamps well and it does, but I'll show you the picture later =).
I like this colour, it is a very dark metallic silvery purple which changes to IMO prettier purple when  TC is applied.
Lets take a look at the pictures:

 Sun


I played a little bit with one of my top coats an got these looks:

In this combination I prefer the one with TC


 Next on is sweet suprise
This one is also a one coater and it stamps great too =). It immediately remembered me on CG Admire, but in fact they are quite different. This one has chrome finish so you have to be really careful with ridges and application.

I got these looks when I applied TC:

I was really impressed with this colour combination as well.I had to choose I'd pick pink over red. 



The last one is a shade called wonderlicious green. I don't know why they decided to name this polish green since I don't see even a tiny bit of green colour in this polish.
This one is one coater as well. Application was great and as the other 2 shades this one dries fast too =)

This is what I got after playing with TC:
( you can clearly see that I ran out of ideas )

On my pinkie I used a really thin coat of TC so the colour change effect isn't that visible, but this only happens with the blue one, with other two I didn't have problems

I must warn you! This picture is really not colour accurate. The colour changed blue should be a bit darker, but I failed to capture it. I really like the darker blue in this combination.


This is how they work with stamping:
( please forgive me for such a bad quality picture)
L without TC, R with TC ( If I used another TC desings probably wouldn't be smudged that much)


My overall opinion:

I was really impressed with them. They are easy to work with, great for stamping, colour contrast is really visible, but you have to make sure that you apply enough top coat. Their price was about 2,2€ which is much less than BarryM Chameleon  
Essence congratulations, you put another great stuff on the market for a very reasonable price!


I already have one pretty nail art in mind with 2 of them. 
I'll probably use them a lot for stamping, because they stamp pretty well, and when I'll get sick of on colour I'll only add TC and get a completely different combination =).

I also tried what would happen if I stamped TC on colour change polish. I discovered that this doesn't work, because the layer of TC is too thin.

What do you think of them? Are they a must have or they don't catch your attention? 

Which one of  this shades is your favourite?

  4. Did you really get the design just by applying top coat,like the hearts and dots? These are awesome polishes!

    1. Thalie, this polish changes colour when you apply a TC, and I drew those dots, lines, hearts.... with dotting tool or a nail art brush. This polish itself doesn't make this shapes =)

  6. These are gorgeous! I love the new polishes they've been coming out with lately that change color with sun exposure or, in this case, top coat - very fun! <3

  7. Hvala za tole recenzijo. Lepo je vedeti, da deluje katerikoli nadlak, da mi potem ne bo treba kupovati še njihovega nadlaka. Namen imam vzeti vse razen pinkija, ker pink itak ne nosim, čeprav z rdečo izgleda super kombinacija.

    1. Taya, ko sem gledala okrog njihove police sploh nisem opazila, da imajo kao neki posebni nadlak zato, in sm kr kupla te lake, potem pa pridem domov, in vidim da piše step 1 =))). Sem šla potem kasneje v trgovino, in ga videla, ampak seveda sem že prej sprobala in je delovalo tako da ni bilo potrebe =)
      Tudi pinkija priporočam, je precej lep =)

      To je pa novi header. Mi je veliko punc napisalo, da je moj blog brez headerja dolgočasen, potem sem se pa potrudila in nalepila slike skupaj, ni najboljši, ampak za prvi header bo že mogel biti dober =)
