I adore esscence products not only because they are affordable, their quality is fantastic. I have this nail polish in almost every colour. I get so many compliments with people assuming I had professional gel nails done at a salon. The colours are vivid and shiny, its easy to apply and only starts to wear after about 5 days. Highly recommended by a die hard esscence fan.

When I am looking for a good quality nail polish, without breaking the bank, Essence is my go-to brand! Great selection of colours, really long lasting with a shiny gel look, and extremely affordable! It has a thick square shape brush that is able to coat your whole nail with the first coat!

Confession - I used to hate painting my nails. I hated having to go to all the effort only to have them chip about a day later. That was until I discovered the Essence Gel Nail polish. I absolutely love this product. It's easy to use. Dries relatively quickly (so life doesn't have to stop for a whole day while you wait for your mani to dry;)), and it lasts for at least 5 - 6 days, without chipping!! I would definitely recommend this product, and with all the colours Essence has on offer, there's something to suit everyone's taste! :)

As a nail polish addict, yes I have to admit it, I tend to polish my nails at least every second day. HOWEVER with this new range I have been finding that the quality is so good and the chipping is down to an absolute minimum so I have less inclination to redo my nails so often. I was hunting for that perfect white and I have found it! The gel polish in white is however a thick formula but at this price who cares, right? Irrespective of the thickness of the formula, it is still an easy paint and the drying time is minimum. Two coats of the white and it is totally opaque and smooth finish. Be careful not to work to close to the edges as the formula does tend to pool a bit. I can highly recommend this product. I have tried a number of the colours and I have no regrets on any one of the bottles I purchased. Go grab a bottle and get painting ladies, this series from Essence is a must have :)

I love having beautiful nails, not only because it makes you feel good but I believe that a woman should maintain her nails and ensure they always look good. I must admit that I used to shop for the more expensive nail colours because I believed they were better quality, until one day I saw a pretty colour on the essence display and thought oh well give it a try. I now prefer this brand to most other brands, the brush for me is a huge selling point. I find the thinner brushes does not give an even finish, by the time I have got to the other end of my nail it has started drying and leaves a horrible finish, with the essence brush being thicker it coats my nails beautifully. The colours are rich, vibrant and there are options. It is affordable and does not chip or fade. Love it

I bought these two lovely gel nail polish from Essence after had visited Clicks stores.

I love the thickness of the nail polish & the bristle itself allowing me to paint my nails without any spills and also the lid is easily hold-able!

I used color code DDAD (the glitter one) on two finger nails on each hand & used color code CHADB on three finger nails on each hand to create that nude yet shinny look at the same time.

The process went well without any dripping since the nail polish itself it's like gel it's thick. It dried up very quickly, the smell is not that strong.

It costed less than R35.00 for each nail polish.

Purchased at Clicks.

If you love nail polishes and manicures, then this post is for you! I have a confession to make…I’m a nail polish addict. I have a nail polish in almost every colour and my nails are almost always painted.

A couple of weeks ago my favourite neutral French pink colour from Revlon was finished, so I went to Clicks to buy another bottle. Of course, there wasn’t any of this specific colour in stock – only a white-ish colour with blue sparkling glitter. No, thank you – pass please.

So, there I was – browsing the shelves at Clicks looking for a suitable replacement. I’ve always enjoyed the Essence brand’s products (I have some of their eyeshadows and concealers) so I spent some time looking at their product display. Then I spot a nail polish that Essence claim is like gel, but you don’t need a lamp to cure it. Plus, the three bottles that I needed (the base coat, one colour and top coat) together added up to cost less than what the Revlon colour would have costed me. So, I decided to give the Essence gel-like polish a try.

If I could insert singing voices here, I would. I’m so, so, SO impressed with these products! Firstly, it dries quickly. I have zero patience when it comes to painting my nails - I don’t want to sit around for hours waiting for the polish to dry. Secondly, it’s so cheap! At just under R50 each for the base coat and top coat and R29.95 per colour, I think it’s a steal. And thirdly, it’s durable! I’m quite rough with my hands, so normally by day two my nail polish needs a touch up.

In fact, I was so impressed, that I went back and bought four more colours. I’m currently sporting the deep red and I’m pretty impressed with how nicely it still looks – even after 5 days of wear. I applied four layers of polish: one layer for the base coat, two thin layers of colour and then the top coat. With these, I literally apply a coat to the nails on each hand and then start the process again. No waiting in between for each coat to dry. Once I’m done, I am careful for about 30 minutes or so to not mess up the mani, but I’ve painted my nails with these Essence polishes in the past just before I went to sleep, and woke up with a smudge free mani.

So seriously, go and treat yourself. I can’t wait to try all of these colours! Keep in touch on Instagram (@stylediarysa), I’ll share my mani pics there.

Essence is the only brand of nail polished that I buy. It is super affordable, very trendy and great quality! Team the Essence Gel polish with Revlon Gel Envy Diamond Topcoat and you have chip-free nails for 5-7 days!

Essence is one of the brands that I absolutely love and they have such a wide variety of nail products. They recently brought out their The Gel nails range, which is really amazing. You can either use those polishes on their own for a longer lasting manicure or you can use the specially formulated base and top coat with your The Gel nail polish to have an even longer lasting and gel manicure.

So if getting a gel manicure is a guilty pleasure of yours, do indulge in this great 3 step system from Essence. You will be able to get a gorgeous long lasting gel manicure from home and at a fraction of the salon price.

This specific range of nail polishes from Essence is incredible! I have bought several other expensive brands' nail polishes in the past, and have been disappointed. These nail polishes require only 2 coats for dense colour, and last for ages before chipping. In fact, I usually need to re-do my nails because of the regrowth, rather than them having chipped. For the price, I think there is nothing better, and I will continue to purchase more and more shades of these fab nail polishes.

My most favourite brand of nail polish! Not only is it great for the pocket at R22, it dries fast and effectively with no sticky mess. It also lasts long and leaves a smooth gel finish on your nails. I especially love the nude tones.
