They have a beautiful range of colors and it is so cost effective but I don’t like how the color chips within a day

I love the colours and the feel of this nail polish and have been using it since it was first launched. Unfortunately lately the quality seems to have changed and it chips very quickly even on my toenail. I would recommend for special occasions but don't be surprised if doesn't last very long.

Even though i had almost every color under the sun, i was so disappointed with the quality of this product. I love Essence,don't get me wrong but this is a fail!
I would prep my nails,then prime it before applying my 2 coats, just so that it would chip the next day, of not sooner.
I would recommend it for a quick fix, buy not longer than a day

This is a really affordable nail polish and it comes in a wide range of beautiful colors . I would repurchase if it was a color I really loved , the only thing that puts me off is that it chips quickly and becomes thick quickly ..which affects the results of what your nails will look at the end and how long it will take to dry.. because of that specific reason I moved to Wet and Wild .. but then again that range doesnt have the broad spectrum of colors .. seems one cant win . but still a decent buy.

The essence range of nail polishes are probably the most tempting for anyone venturing in to a local pharmacy because the display is as delicious as the price-point.
I have quite a few bottles of these but I find that they don't last very long, even with a top-coat!
I probably would buy again because it's affordable but only for when I need a nail colour to match an outfit "that night", because I know that this color doesn't last for much longer than that.

I made the mistake of buying too many colours at once before testing out the product. I found that the colour selection is excellent. the colour on the nail is excellent. However the problem is that the nail polish chips after a day or two.

I did not enjoy my experience with this product because it chipped very easily. I had to keep on reapplying throughout the day and my polish ending up looking uneven. Another thing is it takes super long to dry, so for up to 20 mins after application you cannot use your hands, if you do the polish ends up smudging and it looks really bad.

In my experience, Essence nail polish tends to scrape off easily after applauding 2 coats. I love those nudes shades but I’ve noticed that the nude shade turns to another color after wearing the nail polish for 2-3 days. I wouldn’t repurchase this.

I really like this range of nail polish by essence BUT, only on my toe nails as it does not last on my fingernails :( I love the brush because its quite nice quality. I also love the wide range of colors it has in the range and it removes quite quickly. It does tend to chip at the ends of my nails but its easy to touch up without looking plastered on.

Love the bright colors. Some do not go on as easily as others with just one coat.

The gel - look lasts longer than the normal polish. However if you work in water you need to reapply by day 3 - 4 and it loses its shine.

Cost-effective if you are a student and want many colors to work with but works our more if you need to re-apply every 3 days.

I wish that there was a maybe option listed under recommendation as i am a bit two minded about purchasing essence nail colour in the future. I prefer their darker tones eg: reds, maroons,darker colours ,as it covers the nail quickly, and 1 coat is enough when applying in a rush , however the lighter colours are a bit of a task.
