    Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

    I think these nail polishes are great quality. The formula is thick and creamy, and the brush is very wide and flat which makes for application very easy. I love the formula and brush more than OPI even! However, I just wish that the polishes came in more colors.

      Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

      This is my favorite nail polish! I always buy a new one before I run out. The sheer, pale pink color is perfect for every day use. I even have used it for a base coat and top coat, when I want to mute a neutral colour. One coat leaves my nails looking shiny and fresh, two coats builds up the color. I also have the clear and denim blue options. My only quarrel is that sometimes the cuticle area chips quickly if I don't smooth it out before applying the gel. However, the tip and sides of the nail almost never chip! Great for the price.

            Bought several colors, as they were very affordable & on sale. Really liked the purple color, as it stayed shiny & on my toenails for over a week! Pink colors a little dull after a few days, so will try the grey color to see how it wears. Might exchange one of the pink colors for a teal. Also liked the pale pink, as it is sheer & long-lasting.

              Unbeatable for the price. Actually is better than a lot of pricier stuff. Love the color. It's thick so apply quickly so no clumping.
              Rich color!
              If no top coat lasts well but will chip some
