    Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

    I have tried every nail polish on the planet and this is my favorite by far and it is inexpensive. I started doing my own nails after taking a break from shellac to give my nails a breather. I can polish my nails at home and my manicure lasts over a week!

        I love it! It's better than some of the more expensive nail polishes. It also doesn't contain the top 3 most harmful chemicals that are usually found in nail polish!

        Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

        The bottle is so small and light weight that it tipped over twice while I was doing my nails. The polish did NOT stay on without chips for more than 24 hours, let alone 10 days as promised. Color was lovely but there are lovely colors in all brands. Sally Hansen's miracle gel polish stays on longer.

                  I love how opaque the color is, but the formula is a little thick and causes bubbles to form while drying. I ended up adding a few drops of nail polish remover and it seemed to apply much more easily!

                  Love these nail polishes just wish they didn't flake so soon! A top coat usually helps but they definitely do not last all week.
