          I would not buy the product again. It didn't even last 3 days and was chipping off. I loved the color choices and was excited it was reasonable but not worth it.

              Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

              Amazed By You is the shade I picked up It is a gorgeous Deep purple
              The brush is just the right size for a perfect nail application.
              It applies beautifully and honestly you only need one coat.
              If you want a bit more darker then you could apply a few more coats for the shade you want.
              This polish dries quickly and lasts. I have had mine on for 7 days a full week with no problems . My polish is so shiny it looks like I just had a manicure .
              This is a great polish and I plan on purchasing a lot more shades . I have a few now and still love them .

              I love these nail polishes so much! They last a fair amount of time but for the price you can't beat them.
