    Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish:

    Very well pigmented, so you don't have to rack on the layers.
    1 layer is enough. Another layer would only to be for getting any blank spots you missed. Any more makes it look clumpy.
    True to color.
    Very cheap.

    My only issue was that when you first apply it, it's really sticky & has a tendency to not stay in place (on the nail).
    ie. I went back to get the blank spots & it ended up just coming off the top part of my nail.
    It's like it didn't want to stay on.
    I recommend doing the first layers THEN going back to fill it in, so the first layer can dry a bit.

              I love this product! I got it to quickly do my nails for something and it by far my favorite. Most polishes chip a couple days later. i can keep this polish on more than a week with no chip at all.
