4 Essence The Gel Polish Swatches and Mini Review

Hi guys . Happy Friday. Hopefully you guys had an okay week... Mine wasn't the best , but you can't win them all can you ?

As I mentioned earlier in December , Essence was kind enough to send me some awesome goodies m, and today I'm sharing 4 of those polishes with you. These are from their The Gel Nail polish . These polishes work great with their The Gel Base Coat and Top Coat - but it's not needed, this works great with normal base and top coat too .

As I mentioned in the post where I reviewed the top / base coat with the colour combo HERE , the colour with The Gel top and base coat does last a good 4/5 days on me, which is pretty impressive. 

So onto the swatches of the 4 polishes I'm sharing with you today - 

Essence Miss Captain 
Essence Miss Captain is a gorgeous teal coloured nail polish leaning to the grey side. It does pull more grey/tealish on me personally , so I think this is one that will look different on different skin tones. I used 2 coats in the swatch above.

Essence My Love Diary
This is a gorgeous rose pink , and while I don't personally love these types of colours on myself - this is definitely a winner colour wise for most people . I used 2 coats in the swatch above.

Essence Rock My World
This dark grey polish is a winner in my books - and the colour I'm sporting this week. I can see myself reaching for this gorgeous polish over and over again , and I'm on day 6 with just minor tip wear on this colour. Bonus ! I used 2 coats in the swatch above.

Essence Va - Va - Voom 
Essence Va-Va Voom is a gorgeous coral matte nail polish. If there is one thing Essence knows how to do amazingly well - it's doing matte nail polishes. Don't get me wrong , the whole range is amazing, but most matte nail polishes end up chalky looking , and Essence formula is amazing enough to not turn out like that. The matte polishes dries pretty quickly too - especially since you can't use a quick dry topcoat to speed up the process.  I used two coats in  the swatch above. 

So which polish of these 4 is YOUR favourite ?? Any fun plans for the weekend ??
