My new product of the week is Essie Gel Setter!
This is a brand new nail product from Essie and I’m so impressed with the results. It can be used as a top coat over any Essie nail varnish and as well as making your nails look super shiny it also seals in the colour and makes it really long wearing (mums rejoice!)
I love the fact that it can be used in combination with colours you already have as I was dreading having to replace all my nail varnishes with the new gel like formulas all the brands are selling.
I had already tried Sally Hansen’s Mega Shine Top Coat which I had high hopes for however I didn’t find that it made my nails any more chip resistant. This feels lovely and thick to put on and it really does do exactly what it says on the tin (or in this case bottle).
I initially applied it over Essie’s ‘Ballet Slippers’; one of my favourite neutral shades however I now feel brave enough to give it a go with ‘Luxedo’ which is a gorgeous deep plum making it perfect for Autumn. I typically find that when I’m doing my nails myself I’m better off sticking to lighter colours so that the tarnishes that appear after the first couple of days are less obvious, however now I have this top coat I think it’s time to indulge in the dark side!
