Essence Gel nailpolish without LED lamp


Hi sweeties

I know it’s been a while since I posted something (so sorry), but I really didn’t have time to keep up with my blog, because I had to study for my finals. Now I only got 1 exam left and I found a little time to take a break from studying and post something that I wanted to share with you guys.

Everytime I see nailpolish that gives that same gel look without using a led lamp, I always NEED to try them out haha, I have already tried the ones from Sally Hansen which I liked a lot. Now Essence came up with the same kind of thing and since Essence is a budget brand, the prices are very cheap!

So this routine exists out of 3 steps, you need to buy the base coat, nailpolish from their ‘the gel’ nailpolish collection and the top coat.

1. First you start with applying the basecoat


My nails applied with the base coat

2. After that, you apply the color of nailpolish that you like. The colors are really nice, they have a lot of different and bright colors.


I went for a pink one named ’09 Lucky’.


2 coats gel nailpolish

3. And the finishing touch: apply the base coat


Result after using the top coat

As you can see, it really gives a gel look, and it’s very shiny. To be honest, I didn’t expect too much from these polishes, but I gotta admit that they actually last very long. For me it lasted for about a week! Also, I have heard that you could use the base and top coat with any other nail polish as well! (it’s just a marketing stunt that it has to be one from essence). I really like these polishes, especially the top coat.

Prices: Base coat: 2,59€ – The nailpolishes: 1,69€ – Top coat: 2,59€
Where to buy? Kruidvat, drugstores,..

What do you guys think about these polishes? Let me know in a comment.
