Essence Gel Nail Polish

Nail Polish is not something I like to spend a lot of money on.  I want pretty nails I just don't want to spend a fortune on them.  I have bought the odd expensive polish and over the years have discovered they are not worth the money.  Sure they might come in pretty colours but they don't last any longer than drugstore/chemist nail polishes and in some cases they chip much easier (Chanel I am looking at you).  

Essence is a brand that I often identify with a much younger person than myself (I am an old lady).  The stand does shout "teen" and my local stand is always surrounded by teenagers.  I have recently been trying out some of Essences products and I am really impressed (blown away by The Lash Princess False Lash Mascara).  I am always impressed by the shade range in Essence Nail polishes which are always like a pretty frame around the stand.  Essence have recently stepped up their game by launching a range of gel nail polishes*.

Everybody loves the look of a gel manicure and Essence are putting the gel manicure at every body's fingertips by releasing a massive range of 46 gel polish shades.  They literally have every shade you can imagine and cost (wait for it) €1.79.... I know ONE SEVENTY NINE.   They are literally cheaper than chips.

Instead of having to book into a salon you simply pick up one of Essence Gel base coat and top coat (€3.09 each) and one of the many shades.  There is no need for a UV lamp, no sitting around.  Simply apply the base coat, your chosen colour and your gel top coat.  The simplest and most affordable gel nails you could imagine.

The finished look is beautiful, when I was wearing the mint shade I was complemented on my shellac and asked what salon had I got it done in.  What I love even more is you can easily remove the polish with any nail polish remover.  Come on hands up who has picked off a gel manicure  ruining your nail bed? 
 At €3.09 the base coat and top coat are also an amazing price and I'm sure you can use these with your existing nail polish collection.

I am blown away by Essence Gel Nail polishes.  Super Shiny, long lasting (not as long as a salon gel manicure but they lasted a good 6 days on me and I am very hard on my nails), easy to apply and very affordable.  Whats not to love?  Even if Essence is not a stand you would usually visit at €1.79 you would be crazy not to pick up some fashion nail polish shades.

  1. I love essence polishes so I must try them out with the bottom/ top coat. I never get more that 2 days out of nails without a chip. That mint shade is gorgeous

  2. I have heard of these and know I see why they love it. It seems like a good one. Can't wait to get my hands on this....
