Essie ‘Gel Setter’

Hi everyone! Hope you are all having a great week! Essie has released a new product that it supposed to give you a gel-like manicure without all the hassle! I tried this out and wanted to share my thoughts!

I purchased my bottle from Meijer, but so far I have not seen this in any other stores yet. It can also be purchased from Essie.com. This nail polish costs $9-10 depending on where you get it from.

Claims: “it’s a true innovation. just apply my gel.setter over any of my gorgeous nail colors to see plumper, shinier, gel-like color. no gel curing time. no lamp needed. easy removal” – Essie

Essie claims that you can use any of their nail colors along with this – I used ‘Mod Square’

I took a picture each day to show you how my nails looked:

This is right after application – looks very shiny and has a quick dry time which is a plus!

Second day, still looking nice and shiny, and no chips!

After the third day, there were still no chips on either hand!

The fourth day is when it all went downhill….I had multiple chips 😦 You can see this hand had two (almost three) chipped nails, and the other hand had two as well. I did do some house cleaning this day, so this is likely what caused them to chip.

I didn’t take any more pics, because once my nails chip, I remove the polish.

My thoughts: So this ended up lasting me a good 3 1/2 days before it chipped. In my opinion, that’s nothing spectacular. But I do really like how my nails looked for the first three days. I will continue to use this polish since I’ve already bought it, but I don’t think I would ever repurchase 😦

Let me know if you have tried this and how it worked for you!

❤ Rylie
