If you’re following SoNailicious on Instagram you might have seen the photo of a nail mail from Essence that I shared just before we all began our Christmas festivities. Not just one but the entire four new Essence collections arrived on that day!
One of the collections that immediately caught my attention was the delicate Like An Unforgettable Kiss. For such an inexpensive brand, the packaging is exceptionally stylish. The thoughtfully put together colour palette of predominantly pink, purple and red is also eyecatching. Each colour is dramatically different yet matches all the other colours in the collection. It doesn’t just look pretty, the formula is also superb! So, I thought you guys should be informed about this wonder varnish before it hits the shelves. Don’t miss out on these affordable beauties when updating your stash for the new season!

REVIEW – Essence Like An Unforgettable Kiss Nail Polish Collection:
- Formula: 5-FREE and cruelty-free formula! Three thin coats required to get fully opaque coverage. These are not the fastest drying polishes so you’ll need to use a good fast-drying top coat along with these.
- Application: The polishes have a nice flattened brush with synthetic bristles that make it easy to apply the lacquer. It dries out evenly without any streaks, doesn’t go bubbly and is easy to remove/clean up.
- Finish: Very glossy cremes. Essence Like An Unforgettable Kiss polishes could be easily worn without top coat if they were faster drying. Pictured nail art – no top coat.
- Wearability: 5 days with a top coat.
- Nail Art: Perfect for any kind of nail art or details. The formula is really easy to work with. The colours look stunning on their own or paired with other shades from the collection.
