Essence has a range of Gel Nail Polish called Essence The Gel Nail Polish and I decided to try them out. I have number 17 Juicy Love which is a striking red colour and number 46 Black is Black which is pitch black. I really love black nails, I feel that they look really good against my skin tone. Red nails are so classy but I only wanted to try them out because of a very delayed FOMO.

How I used it
number 17 Juicy Love for the purpose of this review
- I filed, buffed and polished my nails to prep for the polish
- I applied The Gel Juicy Love nail polish to my nails
- I followed up with a second coat
- I then finished off with the Catrice Top Coat nail polish.
- I then clean off the sides if I get a bit messy
I used the Black is Black a while back, but for the sake of having nail polish on my nails so I do not remember how I felt about it. Tell you what, I will have it as my next nail colour and I will post it on my instagram. So If you would like to see it, follow me on Instagram
Now coming to Number 17 Juicy Love. I have been looking for a nail polish that gives me that whole professional Manicure finish and most of all, a nail polish that lasts! This nail polish gave me just that! It looks nice and shiny even before the Top Coat and it lasted for over a week. A week is a long time for me because I wash dishes every day and I don’t use gloves. The fact that it is super affordable makes it even more special. So I am very impressed and happy with this nail polish! I absolutely cannot wait to try out more colours. When I try them out I will post the pictures on my instagram page so look out for that.
And that’s the review. Essence, Great Job on this product!!!
See ya later
