Essence Nail Colour 3 Review

Essence is made in France. I didn't know that. I didn't know it's one of the cheap makeup sold in Fred Meyer either. Mine, called "Boys are Back in Town," was on Clearance for $2.77. 

Essence Nail Colour 3 Review


(Price: $12.99 original, $2.77 clearance)

Quality and Performance (4 points total. 40% weight.)

  • Loved the application. Formula is smooth, consistent, and easy to put on.
  • It isn't watery or thick - just the right consistency.
  • One coat was enough for both the solid color and the glitter top coat.
  • Nail polish dried quickly.
  • I was very happy with the product's quality and performance. Definitely one of the best nail polish I've used.
+4 points 

Pigmentation (3 points total. 30% weight.)

  • The purple color is rich and lustrous; the glitter is shiny and elegant.
  • The nail polish has beautiful pigmentation.
+3 points 


Lasting Power (2 points total. 20% weight.)

  • Unfortunately, tips chipped the next day.
  • The rest of the polish held up, but I wouldn't say that it has strong lasting power.
-1 point
+1 point 

Packaging (1 point total. 10% weight.)

  • L-O-V-E the packaging!
  • The double-ended glass containers make a genius idea.
  • It's simple, yet easy to use. 
  • All polish should look like this.
+1 point 

Overall Likes

  • Hand-down, for cheap makeup, Essence made the best nail polish yet.
  • The formula is consistent, brilliant and rich of color.
  • The packaging is genius.

Overall Dislikes

  • Not much to dislike. 
  • It chipped a little too soon, but that's all.

Overall Rating



Absolutely! I might even pay full price next time.

Thanks for reading.


I really liked the Essence Nail Colour 3.
