Today I wanted to review my new nail polish I received in the December Glossybox - Essence. It came in a beautiful shade called "Do you speak love?", 113 - colour and go nail polish.
I couldn't wait to try it out, such a gorgeous festive colour. It looks lighter with a flash, but in normal light it is much darker shade as I like it more.
I applied ESSIE all in one as base and top coat, two coats of Essence nail polish and one last coat of Sally Hansen Anti Chip top coat to dry my nails faster.
Here is the ingredient list for you to have a look:
BUTYL ACETATE, ETHYL ACETATE, NITROCELLULOSE, PHTHALIC ANHYDRIDE/TRIMELLITIC ANHYDRIDE/GLYCOLS COPOLYMER, ACETYL TRIBUTYL CITRATE, ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, STEARALKONIUM HECTORITE, ACRYLATES COPOLYMER, ADIPIC ACID/FUMARIC ACID/PHTHALIC ACID/TRICYCLODECANE DIMETHANOL COPOLYMER, CITRIC ACID, PHOSPHORIC ACID, CI 15850 (RED 7 LAKE), CI 15880 (RED 34 LAKE), CI 77891 (TITANIUM DIOXIDE).
I think my favourite feature of the Essence nail polish is their brush - it is wide and flat, so I made a very nice and controlled manicure even with a brighter shades like this one. Nail polish lasted me only two days, but if to think about the price, I didn't expect anything else. I think lighter shades might last longer.
I will give Essence, Do you speak love? 4 stars out of 5. The company doesn't promise a long lasting finish, they do promise a highly intensive shine and this nail polish deliver it very nicely. If you are looking for an affordable nail polish with a glossy finish, this will tick your box.
Have you tried any of Essence nail polish yet?
