Hi angels, how do you feel today? Remember my Essence Gel Nail Polish Haul where I showed you my top pics from the new Essence collection? Today I wanted to tell you more about my favourite shade from the entire haul - a lovely pastel mint shade `40 Play With My Mint`. It is a perfect spring colour, but I love this nail polish so much and can`t stop wearing on a daily basis, even thought it is a summer time.
The Essence gel nail polish has a special quick dry formula, it is thick and creamy like any other gel nail polish, but you don`t need to own a special lamp to `bake` it. It dries out very quick to a gorgeous glossy finish. I love to apply an extra top coat to make my manicure even more glossy and to last a little bit longer. `Play With My Mint` is opaque from the very first application, but I prefer to have an extra coat just to make the colour more intense. The application of this nail polish is very smooth and comfortable, it isn`t streaky at all. Thanks to it`s wide brush it is possible to cover almost the entire nail plate at once.
On my nails Essence Gel Nail Polish stays for 2 days without chipping and I was rather disappointed with this fact. Especially because Essence claims that this polishes are long lasting. I think that a special base coat and a top coat that retails on their website will make improve the durability of the “gel nail polish”, but it still kind sad. I don`t like the fact I need to own something more for a perfect manicure. But I`m still loving the entire Gel Nail Polish collection by Essence because the colours are simply adorable. And the pricing is amazing, these nail polishes retail for $2 each.
What is your favourite nail polish at the moment?
Lots of love,
