Essence : The Gel Polish Lucky & Top and Base coat Review

Hi guys . Happy Monday ! How was your weekend ?? 

Essence recently launched some awesome The Gel Polish base / top coat and a great range of polishes.  I got a few of the colours in the range to test out, and was pretty excited to see how these polishes preform with the top and base coat from this range. 

One of the colours I got was Lucky - A gorgeous pink polish. The colour was opaque in two coats , and applied smoothly.I used it with the Essence The Gel Polish Base coat and Top coat. Now the base coat I found pretty average, but boy oh boy ... The top coat really impressed me. I love quick drying top coats, because let's be real - no one has time to sit and wait for polish to dry . This top coat is AMAZING ! It makes your mani dry SUPER fast (not Seche Vite fast, but really fast ) And it makes your nails look nice and shiny. 

Now onto the wear time - this combo is suppose to make your nails last chip free for longer. I won't say it will keep them chip free for 7days or nearly as long as a gel mani would last you - but it did last a good 4/5 days on me - and I'm rough on my nail polish. In my books that's a decent amount of time. Especially for such an affordable brand . 

Now onto the swatches of the pretty pink polish Essence Lucky ... 

Have you tried the Essence Gel Polishes ? What's your thoughts ??

*This product/s was send to me in exchange for my honest opinion*


  1. Stunning colour. I bought the top coat, and it does dry super fast

  2. Sorry to hear that this combo lasts less days on your nails than you thought, but at least this nail polish has nice color :)
