Here’s what our Review Crew® thought of Essie’s gel nail polishes
We all love the results a salon manicure delivers, however regularly having our nails done professionally is unrealistic for most. That’s where Essie’s Gel Couture 2-Step System comes in. The new gel nail polish range works to easily coat nails, creating a long-lasting, quick-drying and high-gloss finish in shades that are perfect for all occasions.
Beauty Crew sent Essie Gel Couture 2-Step System to women aged between 18 and 35 who want flawless nails for all occasions.
Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Essie gel nail polish and top coat duo:
How opaque the nail colour formula was: The majority of the Review Crew® testers loved how opaque the nail polish was, with many pleased that only two thin coats were needed for a smooth and colour-saturated finish. They also commented on how easy the brush made applying both the colour and top coat due to its flat and wide bristles.
How quickly the polish dried: Testers were quick to compliment how fast-drying both the nail polish and top coat were, with many reporting that both polishes dried within five minutes.
How long the polish lasted: Reviewers were also happy that both products lasted for a week and beyond without chipping or peeling.
In addition to the gel nail polish range, our Review Crew® testers also received Essie 3-Step Core Colour Regimen.
Essie’s Core Colour Regimen works to ensure maximum results from your home manicure with its three-step system. The regimen includes Essie Grow Stronger – a strengthening nail treatment formulated to prevent chipping, splitting and breakage; Essie Colour Range – an opaque nail polish that creates a salon-quality manicure at home (reviewers were all sent the shade Lady Like); and Essie Good To Go – a quick-drying top coat that sets nail polish quickly and leaves nails shiny.
Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Essie’s 3-Step Core Colour Regimen:
How strong the base coat made their nails: Reviewers were pleased at how strong and healthy the base coat made their nails feel after only one week of use.
How opaque the nail polish was: Testers were also quick to comment on how opaque and long-lasting this nail polish formula was, with some manicures lasting well over a week.
How quickly the top coat dried: Most members commented on how quick the top coat dried, enabling them to get on with their day without the fear of smudging or ruining their manicure.
