Essie Van D' Go is a bright, milky pink-peach. In the bottle, the color looks like a pastel pink, but it translates slightly different on the nails. It's a bit brighter and more peach toned (or pink with a yellow tint) once it hits the nails. It may be a disappointment to some if you wanted the exact shade the bottle shows, but it's exactly what I wanted. The color of Van D'Go, is actually my favorite color. It's comes really close to Orly Cotton Candy, but Van D'Go is slightly lighter. (See Orly Cotton Candy here

As far as the formula goes, it applied a little streaky like many pastel polishes tend to do. Two coats was fine, but I had slight streaks on a couple of my nails, so I applied a third coat to all of my nails. With three coats, I had no streaks and the color was completely opaque.

It's a very pretty shade for the summer and I'm loving it!

Do you own Essie Van D'Go? How do you like it?

  1. I love it! Are there any true peach polishes that you recommend? All the peach polishes I have tried are just way too sheer!

  5. I like this color, although I dunno if I'd be brave enough to wear on my fingers. On the topic of streaking, I find that Essie as a whole has a thinner formula which doens't coat well enough. Not my favorite brand; I prefer OPI.

  6. I love pink because it's my favorite color, now I have a question I'm kinda new to the nail polishes and I just like how yours end up. If you can be so kind to tellnme or make a video or pictures on how to make the nail polish look perfect because I try doing it and it's not good at all. Cute color though...<3

  12. I found this shade to be a dusky pale pink, true to the colour in the bottle, I may try adding an extra coat to give it a bit of oomph otherwise it looks like an grandma's shade of pink on me, I was so looking forward to wearing it to :/
