        This nail polish has become by far my favorite ever. Such great product at a convenient price and it's cruelty free. So glad I came across this nail polish. Hopefully they come out with even more colors.

        Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

        The nail polish is incredible for the price. Absolutely looks amazing - glossy, gel-like finish. If you want nail compliments, use their polish. They also have unique, gorgeous colors. I hope they expand and get more colors. My only 1 issue is that once you open the polish and use it, it begins to get a bit clumpy or dry in the bottle and so there are less uses than with other polishes. It is still worth it as it's cheap and gorgeous.

              Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

              This is great. Affordable (I will not buy a polish more than $4, if that), PERFECT BRUSH (thick, short, stubby), opaque, shiny, and all the other great things!! Except.... It chips easily. I was tearing plastic off my Iced Coffee Bottle and it chipped off immediately. Not a big deal to me, tbh, but it may bother others. Still worth it to be honest.
