First impression: Essence The Gel Nail PolishThursday, April 09, 2015
There's a huge trend going on with long wearing polishes, may that be gelish version with light or just gel like polishes. And that's what Essence brought on a market. Gel like polishes, with no lamp for drying. Using the Gel line just like the other polishes, but they suppose to bring 60% more long lasting power. We will see how that goes.
I tried out, for me, one of the most gorgeous polishes out of The Gel line called Blue Bubble Di Blue. (Amazing name, right?) It's really light baby blue colour.
First I applied one coat of base coat, which dries out really fast, and it has matte finish, looking like there is nothing on nails. Then I continue with first thin coat of colour polish, in my case with Blue Bubble Di Blue and waited a minute or so, to be dry completely before applying the second coat. After second coat I didn't wait till the polish dries out completely. But let just say it was half dry before I applied one coat of Top coat. Top coat is not the fastest when it comes to drying, but it dries completely, sooner then a lot of other drugstore quick drying top coats. It gives that gel like shine to nails and protect the colour.
Because of my work, all polishes chipped in first day, but this one survived the first day perfectly, the second day was my free day, and it survive this one too. So it lasted a little longer than any other polish. Of course I couldn't wait more, so I changed the colour at the end of the second day. On my right hand my point and middle finger are chipping like crazy, and on those nails the polish chipped too, the second day. But on others looked like freshly painted.
I need to do a couple more manicure for the proper review. But expect review soon. I would love to hear if you try this out and if you like it?
Which colour is the winner from this line in your eyes?
Have a nice day lovelies!
