Love the shade range! I love nude shades on my nails and they have good ones. Since its a gel polish it is thick but stays shiny and last a while. I didnt experience any chipping for over a week. Would recommend.

PROS

CONS

Difficult application

Chips easily


Nothing great. I bought this nail paint after alot of feedback from my friends but I honestly did not find anything great about them. I brought the shade Millennial Pink. The shade was great. I applied it evenly on my fingers and found the consistency very thick to the point I was finding it difficult to apply. I thought it would be a thinner consistency hence I had to reapply the nail paint as it became messy. The second application went well. The nail paint dried up quickly. The shade looked nice and I received alot of compliments from all. The sad part is that in 3 days it chipped off. I had to redo only on the very third day. This disappointed me and I may not buy this again.

Essence the Gel Nail Polish caught my attention when I saw a cousin of my mine wearing it. She lived in Canada and told me it is quite popular there because of its easy availability and throwaway prices. The shades are pretty good too. I loved its green and blue colour, and it was something I could not take my eyes off. I searched for it online and could get it quickly at online selling platforms. The price is no doubt very reasonable, which made me buy a few shades of my choice. I read about it that it works best with its base coat and top coat, but since I do not generally have time to apply so many layers of lipstick, I decided to go with its single shade only. Initially, I was quite sceptical that it might not work for me without the said base coat or top coats. But anyway, I thought of giving it a try. I tried it and was impressed with the way it glides super smoothly on the nails. The applicator brush works well for it covers quite a lot of area of the nails in just one stroke. I applied two coats of it, and it gave me good coverage and colour. What I really liked about it is that it did not smudge at all and did not get the chip off quickly. It stayed for a good 3-4 days with me, and I had to put a lot of effort to take it off. The nail colours of Essence look super glamorous when combined with a glitter shade on top of it. The glittery goodness shade of this range of nail paint highlights these nail paints so well that you would not like to remove them. With 24 stunning shades to choose from, Essence The Gel Nail Polish surely is going to enhance the beauty of your manicured nails for a longer time.

Works okay but stays longer

Essence The Gel Nail Polish has caught my attention when I heard it is cheap and gives a good color and coverage. The reviews over the internet said it is really good and gives a glossy finish which lasts longer. The product claims to stay on nails for longer duration. The are available in various shades to suit every dress we own. It comes in a transparent glass bottle which is small and not robust. The cap holds the wide applicator brush and the cap is color coded with the shade of the nail polish. It is travel friendly and super cheap. The product is thick in consistency. It has an average pigmentation and the shade does not look the same when applied over the nails. The applicator brush works good but due to the thick nature, it takes time to dry and becomes messy when we are in a hurry. It also feels damp on nails till it dries. The application is not too easy and needs practice to have a smooth application. It does last longer than other nail polish like it claimed which is their best feature. It smells good. I am a lover of nail polish fragrance. It gives a medium coverage if you apply once and to get a better coverage, you need to apply two coating. The bottle is small, you could finish the bottle and switch over to a new shade. It gives a shiny finish. The brand essence has introduced a base coat and top coat for nail polish. With these two products, the Essence The Gel Nail Polish is really good.. Overall, the Essence The Gel Nail Polish lasts longer. They do give a full coverage with base and top nail coat. They also give a good color pay off with a sheen finish at a cheaper price.

Essence The Gel Nail Polishes are the ones I was certainly planning to buy since quite a long period of time now. It was being suggested to me by one of my best friend. She is being using these nail paints from some time now and is really happy with the results. One day I made up my mind and bought these nail paints. They offer a very wider range of shade colours so that you can select one according to your preferences and likes and dislikes. Though I felt that the packaging could have been much better as it does not attract me towards these nail paints. But since my best friend has recommended this to me I need to at least try it once. She did mention that these nail paints are of super quality and they do last longer. And yes I completely agree with the fact that they do last longer as compared to the other brand nail paints. And this fact only forced me to buy them more. How ever I am still not so happy with these nail paints. I mean the results are quite average I would say and that there is nothing called excellent in these nail paints. They do not stand out look wise like other brands. I specifically feel that the consistency is so damn thick making it really difficult to apply. Also I felt that they are not exactly the same as being looked in the bottles. The packaging is not travel friendly either. I remember once I was travelling out of town for one of the weddings and this nail paint completely spoiled my brand new hand bag from inside. I would say that it is an ok nail paint and would recommend to definitely try out the testers before finalising the shades.

Essence The Gel Nail Polishes are those dirty looking or probably the weird looking shaped nail polishes. I mean who made it like this? By the looks of it itself I was not quite impressed with it. But then one of my friends recommended this product telling me that the nail polish actually lasted super long for her and she didn’t have to worry about the fact that she would have to change the nail polish often. This was the only reason I was forced to try this nail polish because it claimed to have long lasting effects. It actually did stay for long. I will not deny this benefit, but then I was disappointed with the colour shade. It looked different in the bottle and turned out to be different looking after applying. The consistency is very thick making it hard to apply. The coverage is also not really great and this I would blame the consistency! The application can get messy and looks very damp because of the thick layer. I would not like to but this product again even though it gives the long lasting effect. For me the finish is something which is very important. In this product I just couldn’t get the required or desired finish!

great colour selection

CONS


I love the essence nail polish. They're colour range is amazing and it's cheap too. I'd be lying if I said I didn't have more than 10 in my collection. The only con is that it doesn't last too long.

I love The Gel range! Whenever I'm giving my nails a break from acrylics I always use Essence because their variety in colours are beautiful and The Gel range doesn't chip as easily and fast as other brands.
