Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

I was super excited about the color and the price of this nail polish, buuuut after application it pretty much just started chipping at the tips... i would probably just put on a clear top coat seal the deal and make it last longer.

    Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

    ok so i tried this system to max out and make platinum, but also i wanted long lasting color for work. im still on fence because it chips in sheets not gradually.. and seems to chip very quickly. but it dried very quickly and the color is one coat and full coverage. for the price its great for special occasions and date nights. does not get killed by multiple trips to the hand sanitizer at work.

    Great Polish

    Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

    I purchased the "so what" color by accident and was not
    at all disappointed. It says use 2 coats, one coat works! It's very pigmented. I used with the gel top coat and it looks like I just walked out of the salon. I would definitely be buying more!

          I wanted inexpensive gray polish--I got what I paid for! I gave myself a proper mani complete with base coat & top coat--this stuff still chipped before thw end of the day & I did nothing to chip it! I repainted the next day & it chipped again before the end of the day--how does polish chip when your hands are on a steering wheel for a 6hr road trip?? Glad I kept my receipt--I bought this polish in 2 different colors & they're both going back ASAP!

                I put it on and didn't have time for a top coat, after 5 days there were no chips, faded a little at the top of the nail.
