Essence Gel Nail Polish 93 | Review, Look

By Rutuja Bhagwat - June 12, 2018

Every time my dad is overseas, he sends my brother and I a link to a local 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. That time I had 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!
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. The ultimate winning point of this nail polish is the consistency; you just require one layer for a finished look! By far, out of all the nail enamels I have tried, this happens to be the best. Five on five for the flawless application.


The shade is an adorable 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 just require one layer, which is why I love the product even more. And the drying part? OMG, the polish dries brilliantly quickly! Just apply one hassle-free layer, wait for five minutes, and do any activity as you like! (Psst! I had washed utensils after 5-7 minutes of the application!

The lasting power is incredible too. The lasting power, in fact, is what we usually seek for in a nail polish. It stayed on, without chipping, for six days! Later, since our nails eventually outgrow the polish, I had to remove the paint off. Otherwise, I could see no chipping whatsoever. This is the perfect brand to pick your travel-nails from, I strongly believe.


- Perfect pastel shade
- Perfect consistency
- Quick drying
- Only one layer required
- Up to 7 days lasting power (without any top or base coats)
- Cute packaging


- Nothing at all


Blindly choose any shade and buy it! Highly recommended from my side. Best polish I have used so far! Also, I just placed an order for a bunch of more shades from their same collection ranging from 5 AED to 6 AED (Rs. 92 to Rs. 110 approx.) only!


WEIGHT: 8 ml
PRICE: 6 AED (Available at Rs. 159 in India)
SHADE: 93 Eclectic Blue
