Essence Modern Romance

Hi everyone! I have another Essence Colour & Go polish to share with you today. Modern Romance is a pale, pastel peach with pink shimmers.






The pink shimmer that is so pretty in the bottle unfortunately doesn't show up much once on the nails. The formula for this is somewhat runny and streaky, making application a little difficult. The thin, runny consistency has a tendency to pool around the edges of the paddle brush, no matter how many times you wipe along the neck of the bottle. This resulted in coverage that was thin in the middle and thick along the edges with every swipe of the brush. I did two coats for the swatches, and you can still see some bald spots, so it can definitely benefit from a third coat.

You can find Modern Romance at Ulta, HEB, and Fred Meyer for $1.99 for 0.27 fl oz.

  2. Too bad that the shimmer doesn't leave the bottle - it would have been a gorgeous detail. But the color looks great on you!

  6. Such a pretty and feminine colour! That's too bad that it was difficult to apply though ... it's annoying when lighter colours need at least 3 coats for complete opacity.
