Essence Gel Nail Polishes Collection mint forgive me gel polish without lamp review liz breygel blogger review swatches

Probably everyone already knows that I'm a huge lover of Essence beauty products, they are budget-friendly, cruelty-free, and simply amazing. Recently I've expanded my nail polish collection with the four gorgeous summer Gel Nail Polishes by Essence, so I thought I`ll share my little review and first impressions.

As I mentioned previously, I've become a lucky owner of four bright and juicy shades, so let me try to describe each one of them. The very first and my favorite nail polish from the whole collection is Essence Gel Nail Polish named `40 Play With My Mint` - a beautiful fresh green color with a cold bluish undertone. The next color `13 Forgive Me` is a mild punch-pink shade, I love wearing it daily. `24 Indian Summer ` is a perfect coral shade, I've never seen a more beautiful coral in my life. And the last, but not least color is Essence Gel Nail Polish with a sweet and cute name ` 38 Love Is In The Air`, unfortunately, I haven't found a link to the website for this shade, probably it was sold out because of the popularity of a pure sunny shade, everyone wants it on the nails.

All the colors from the Gel Nail Polish collection have a gorgeous and rich glossy finish, except for 3 colors: `44 On Air!` - it includes fine glitter, `35 Engaged` - with a gorgeous satin finish,`21 A Whisper Of Spring` with tiny shining particles and a gorgeous `42 Frozen Kiss` with a textured frosty look. You don't need to have a special lamp to `bake` these nail polishes, though they do not last forever as if they were done professionally, with a special gel. But don’t worry, to intensify the glossiness and make the nail polish last longer, you can apply a coat of any transparent top.

Almost forgot to talk about the coverage of the Gel Nail Polishes. They are opaque from the very first application, there is no need for a second coat, but I love adding it, just to make the color pay - off deeper. So if you want a gorgeous and budget-friendly manicure this summer, don’t miss this collection, it is definitely worth trying. Gel Nail Polishes retail for 1.6 GBP ($2.28 ) at the moment and you can buy them at the closest Essence store in your city. What is your favorite summertime nail polish color?

Lots of love,
