    Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

    this is my fifth color I have purchased of the Essence polish. I typically use it on my toes. I am in dress shoes ll day and sandals at night and through the weekend. I can usually get 2.5-3 weeks out of 1 painting. I will put 2 coats of color with the base and top coat. I highly recommend this at home gel, doesn't need anything extra to apply or remove. Great product!

    This brand is way cheaper than competitors. Takes longer to dry than others I have tried, but the price is fantastic for a long lasting diy manicure.

      Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

      I have been wanting to purchase a gel polish because the regular kind always chip after one day of applications. As a mom of two I am always washing my hands and doing dishes and cleaning; this product lasted for over a week long with out having to reapply on my hands before it started chipping as for my toenails it is going on two weeks no chips and they look as good as the first day I painted them!

      Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

      So i was in a rush, had like 12 minutes i did 2 coats of the red gel polish. I let the first coat dry first, which took like 1 1/2 minutes, very impressive. Applied the second coat, same dry time. The color was very rich and the application was easy because of the slightly curved brush. The reason i only gave it four stars was because ot chipped in 6 days. Although its an issue that can easily be fixed with a topcoat.

                  I walked all over the store trying to find red, white and blue nail polish for 4th of July, and I got both red and white from essence. They were really inexpensive, so I wasn't expecting much when I tried them against other whites and reds, but they were just as good as some of the $12 polishes! Great find! I Highly recommend this brand! Lasted really well, until I did housework, but no nail polish ever stays perfect for long when I clean.
