Essence Studio Nails Kit

23 Reviews

Availability: selected Clicks stores

Not many women have the time and energy (not to mention the money) to sit in a nail salon for hours on end while they eagerly await their perfectly manicured nails to dry – only to have to repeat the whole process again two weeks later. But essence studio nails promises a perfect manicure at half the price, in less than fifteen minutes! (Although you will have to do the work yourself.)

Essence has brought out a six-piece starter kit that includes everything you need to be able to do it at home, by the pool or at your friend’s house. They will not damage your nails and can easily be removed at any time.

essence Gel Nail Polish

Ayanda Mkhize

I bought these two lovely gel nail polish from essence after I had visited a Clicks store. I love the thickness of the nail polish & the bristle itself allows me to paint my nails without any spills. I also loved that the lid is easily hold-able! I used color code DDAD (the glitter one) on two finger nails on each hand & used color code CHADB on three finger nails on each hand to create that nude yet shinny look at the same time.

The process went well without any dripping since the nail polish itself is gel-like it. I didn’t like that it dried up very quickly. It costed less than R35.00 for each nail polish.

My friends always ask which salon I go to, but this is my secret.



I would really like to get my hands on a kit like this, but I haven’t seen it at any Clicks or Dis-Chem I’ve been to. Has this product been discontinued? Where can I find it? Please, help!!! x

These were a bit of a disappointment. I expected my nails to last much longer than just over a day. Plus my nails felt so unnatural and looked and felt so bumpy and uneven. I really wasn’t pleased with this. Especially because it was around the price of a gel manicure but left me feeling so disappointed.



That looks great, I think I will have a look for that next time havent seen it around though.
