Every time my dad is overseas, he sends us a link to an online website and asks us to choose whatever we want. My brother picks up an item or two, and I pick up around 15 items minimum. This time I purchased around 25 makeup products from a Dubai shopping site, out of which, few were nail paints. You can check out my Dubai online haul if you want to peek in my vanity. This Essence Gel Nail Polish in the shade 93 Eclectic Blue is the best one I have tried so far! Read on further for a detailed review.
The bottle resembles an hourglass as it has really nice curves along. The peculiarity with Essence nail paints (or for that matter, even their other varieties) is the similar-colour packaging. For instance, if the lipstick is purple, the product packaging will include purple as its main colour. Just like that, since this nail polish is light blue, the lid of the bottle is light blue as well; the two colours are almost identical. The top of the lid has the brand logo. One of the best features of this nail polish is the brush – it's broad and stern.
The consistency is brilliant – not too thin, not too thick. The brush is flat yet rigid, which helps in the application. Absolutely loved how easily I could paint my nails. Also, you need just one layer!
COLOUR & LASTING POWER
The shade is a pastel blue. It's ideal for summer and spring and would make you terribly happy every time you look down at your nails. To get the exact shade, you need just one layer, which is why I love the product even more. And the drying part? OMG, the polish dries quickly! Just apply one hassle-free layer, wait for five minutes, and do any activity as you like! I had washed utensils after 5-7 minutes of application!
The lasting power is incredible! This is something I was looking for in all the nail paints I have used so far. It stayed on, without chipping, for six days! Later, since our nails grow each day, I could notice a little ugliness on the top of nails, and only so had to remove the polish off. Otherwise, this is the perfect brand and nail polish range to pick your travel-nails from. I'm definitely buying more shades from this brand!
