    I love this nail polish! I got the shade 81 "So what?" , and it's a beautiful gray-dusty lilac color. The application makes it easy to use and the polish did not chip away.

              It went on quickly without any issues. I wore it to two amusement parks, rain and then 3 days of work/typing before it started to chip and look worn. I'm very happy with it.

                  Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

                  Found this nail polish and loves the pale pink color and couldn't believe the price, so it was worth a try. I was pleasantly surprised that it had great coverage, color, and glossy finish, and was easy to apply. It also has a lasting finish that doesn't chip easily and has a better value than other polishes that I have, at a fraction of the price. Only con, would be the limited selection of colors, but I always receive compliments when I'm wearing any of the colors from this nail polish! I also love the light turquoise.

                      Goes on thin and streaky. Repeated coats don't help. Returned it. Wet N Wild is a better polish.
