Essence Better Than Gel Nails - Fantastic!

Let me present to you this professional kit from Essence for home made salon looking manicure! Studio nails- better than gel nails! This kit includes six products, that are easy to use and even more important, easy to remove nails. With no UV light and no damage to your own natural nails. And even better you can get all of this for just a tenner, bargaintastic or what?!

Five easy steps and less than 15 minutes to achieve a perfect studio nail look:
Step 1
It’s important to clean your nails with the essence studio nails – better than gel nails nail file before application. This will remove excess oil and dirt to ensure particularly long-lasting results. The file is available for  2.29 

Step 2

Next, select a suitable tip-size and stick it onto the tip
of your natural nails using the especially fast-drying
glue included in the set.
Nail tips  2.29
Nail tip glue  2.29

Step 3
When the artificial tip has dried a bit, remove the little tip-handle
by moving it up and down gently. Then file the nails into the
desired shape (with included file- step 2)

Step 4
Now it’s time to use the base coat: simply apply the transparent base coat on the prepped nails. This ensures that the artificial tips and the subsequent styling have an optimal, long-lasting effect. The base coat is available for  2.89

Step 5

And the final step is – your finish! There is a special, glossy top coat
to give your gel-nail look the perfect finishing touches and to seal
it so that it lasts longer. For an especially gorgeous look, apply two
coats. So head for your polish and you’re done!
Top coat  2.89 
Nail tip remover 2.89

So, now we are ready to use it! First, I filed my nails with step 1 file, that is included in the kit. This step removed all residue from my last manicure and all oils.

Then I got my tips ready...  I measured all tips against my natural tips and the numbers that works with me are (from thumb to pinky): 1, 5, 3, 7 and 9. Then I used glue on artificial tips to placed them on my nails...When using glue you have to be careful to use only a tiny amount, because when you place tip down, the glue distributes it self on whole tip.

When I placed my tips, I pushed down with a toothpick to completely cover my nail tips. Than I went over with one coat of base sealer, waited to dry (couple of minutes) and applied two coats of top sealer. 

 VOILA, this is the result!

My expectations about this kit were very high and I can truthfully say that I'm completly satisfied! I give this product BIG THUMBS UP and definitely 10 out of 10!!! 

I find that I even get more than the 10 days wear as advertised, I normally get between 2-3 weeks before they chip or fall off. How amazing is that?!
