Tried & Tested: Essie Gel Polish
Blue is the hue for me!

What: Essie Gel Manicure

Where: The Nail Spa, various locations nationwide, 600 544 001,

How Much: Dhs150

How Long: One hour

The Treatment: Having tried every gel manicure going, I was totally excited when Essie launched its own range. I’d already checked out the collection and knew there were plenty of on-trend colours to choose from, so I couldn’t wait to see the end result! When I got to the store I decided on a blue shade with a lilac accent on one finger. My therapist started by shaping and buffing my nails, as well as trimming my cuticles. The polish itself consisted of a base coat, two colour coats and a top layer, all of which were left to set for a few minutes under a UV light. When the colour was complete I was given a lush hand massage. 

The Results: My therapist told me the polish can last for up to two weeks, and mine stayed on for about 10 days, after which I opted for a change of colour. There were loads of shades to choose from and I wanted to try them all!
