Essence Break Through is a lovely purple with minuscule micro-shimmer. The colour is rich and opaque and two coats is more than enough to get a glossy saturated look. Essence continues to impress me with their cheap yet amazing nail polishes. This is a wonderful colour and spectacular formula. I have to also mention, I love the brush. It's flat and allows you to cover the nail and get crisp edges while depositing just enough product on the nail. The polish has that glossy almost gel like finish but it lacks in the lasting power department. I would advise you to use a long lasting top coat in order to get more wear out of it.
Overall, a pretty colour and excellent formula for an amazing price. What's not to like?
