    Incredibly pigmented nail polish that is easy to use!

    I received this as a gift from Chick Advisor for a 100% honest review.

    First of all, I want to start by saying that I have only been wearing this nail polish for 4 days, so this is very much a first impressions review.
    This nail polish is supposed to be a coloured nail strengthener. Most nail strengtheners are just clear treatment polishes. However, these Essie Treat Love & Color polishes are tinted strengtheners, which is so nice! If you have brittle, dry or cracking nails, I would much rather have a nice colour on them, than show my brittle nails.

    I received the shade "Mauve-tivation", which is a beautiful purple mauve shade. I really love the shade of this polish; it is perfect for spring!
    When I first opened this polish bottle, I was very surprised and impressed. First of all, the brush is slightly wider than normal Essie polishes. Essie polishes have one of the thinnest brushes out there, which is not really my preference. While it allows increased precision, it takes more work to not get a streaky finish because you have to do more strokes to cover your nail. However, this Treat Love & Color brush is slightly wider, making it easier to cover your whole nail with fewer strokes.
    Secondly, I will not be the first person to say that Essie polishes are classically more sheer than other brands. They usually take 2-3 coats to achieve full opacity. In fact, in the description of these Treat Love & Color polishes, it claims that these are supposed to be sheer. Well that is so not true! This nail polish was fully opaque with only one coat! That is so rare in nail polish, especially with Essie, so I was very impressed. I can't say whether this is the case for all of the other shades, but it certainly was for "Mauve-tivation".

    I found that this polish dried down pretty quickly. With these Treat Love & Color polishes, you do not need to use a base or top coat, you only use this polish. You are also supposed to use two coats of it. With this shade I found that you really didn't need two coats (at least where colour opacity is concerned), but I followed the instructions and applied two coats of it anyways. I found that this polish dried in half and hour, maybe less. That is very quick for multiple coats of nail polish, especially without a quick dry top coat. So again - very impressed.

    So far this nail polish has worn mostly like a typical nail polish. After 4 days of wear I have one finger chipped, but the rest have worn down only slightly. So I would say that this polish has worn slightly better than the typical nail polish. The only exception that I would say has been that because I have not used a top coat, the surface of the nail polish on my nails has definitely gotten marked up with scratches on the surface. But that is really not noticeable unless you are in a certain light. It's not like the polish has been scraped away, but there are imprints of scratches and marks. This would be solved with the use of a top coat.

    In terms of strengthening my nails, I haven't noticed a huge impact. I have two nails that are noticeably more brittle than the rest, and they still feel pretty weak. However, they have not split since using this polish, and they were splitting before I applied it. This polish is supposed to help your nails over the long term, so it will be really interesting to see if it does!

    Overall, this is a great nail polish that doubles as a nail strengthener! I definitely recommend this for anyone who wants a great opaque nail colour that is low maintenance and has a quick dry time. I currently have another shade on its way to me in the mail!

    In love with this shade!

    As a part of the Chickadvisor Product Review Club, I received the shade Indi-Go For It! as a gift to try out and I'm really, really happy with it.

    In the cold prairie winter, my nails are almost always a mess, so I love including products in my routine that will help to nourish and treat my nails, so I was really excited to try out the essie Treat Love & Color polish. I found that the shade Indi-Go For It! was opaque in two thin coats and leveled pretty nicely. Because I did have some uneven texture in my nails, I did add a third thin coat to help even out the look of my nails and it worked quite well. I wore this polish for 5 days before I removed it and I didn't notice any chipping or flaking and only minimal tip wear. Overall, my nails felt quite strong while wearing this polish and I'm super eager to try out more shades in the collection.

    Beautiful new strengthening nail polish

    essies new TLC nail polish line is awesome ! I ordered "sheers to you", it's a pearly light, pale pink, a bit iridescent. The first coat was nice and smoothing to my nails. I could of gotten away with just the one if I was in a hurry and just wanted a sheer protective layer, but I wasn't so I kept going. Second coat was great, drying time is really quick ! Maybe 15 mins for non denting nails !! I think that's amazing personally , I know sometimes it's sketchy after an hour lol! My nails naturally are pretty brittle and in the frigid cold winters, They are the worst ! Constantly peeling and breaking! This polish has stayed on all week, i did do a third coat a couple days in , just for a richer color. I am very impressed with the staying power, after a weekend of washing my hands every 5 minutes with harsh soap, only finally has one nail began to chip. The quality is outstanding and the way it smoothed the ridges in my nails is fab! Great job! So happy to be able to #tryitfree with chickadvisor !

    belle tenue

    À mon avis, les vernis essie sont les meilleurs vernies en terme de tenue. Donc, le nouveau produit "Essie Treat Love & Color" est un excellent vernis qui tient bien et ne s'écaille pas! Je l'ai porté durant une semaine et il ne s'était pas écaillé et il est resté beau et intact pendant toute la semaine. Je vous conseille ce produit.

    Love it!

    I received Essie Treat Love & Color nail polish for free from the chickadviaor review club. I chose the shade "Sheers to You" and made the order through Amazon.ca. I received the product relatively quickly. I followed the instructions and put 2 coats of products. I have been wearing this polish for a almost a week and I'm loving it! I noticed my nail grew longer and stronger without my nail breaking or peeling! I also love the shade; it's a nice light pink sheer shade. There is no need to put a base or top coat. I definitely recommend this product to those who are looking for a nail care that will make your nail stronger! I can't wait to try out the other shades! #gift

    Loving the new Essie TLC Formula

    I like the new formula of the Essie Treat Love & Colour line. I picked up the shade A-Game which is gorgeous pinky mauve shade. I felt like the formula is pretty thick and manages to cover most of the nail in one coat but you do need two coats for a complete opaque finish. It dried pretty quickly and I have had it on for a few days. I did not see any chipping and my nails feel strong and sturdy. I will be trying out other shades from this line for sure!

    Love Essie for brittle nails

    I got this in the mail today and just tried it. I love the color and the fact that this also strengthens brittle nails. I have always been a fan of Essie products, so I’m extra excited to receive this as a gift. I love the color although it is a bit sheer and will require a few coats. #tryessieTLC #essielove

    Pour les mamans pressées!

    J’ai été ravie d’essayer le nouveau vernis fortifiant d’Essie TLC. Il est idéal pour les femmes pressées comme moi! En une étape, on traite et on met de la belle couleur sur nos ongles. En plus, nul besoin d’appliquer une couche de base ni de couche protectrice. Un seul flacon nous procure tout ça!
    Pour le format, Essie reste fidèle à elle-même. On retrouve des bouteilles en 13.5 ml. La forme de son pinceau est comme ses autres soins. Le pinceau applique uniformément la couleur sur nos ongles. La texture du vernis est assez épaisse, ce qui nous permet de ne mettre que 2 couches pour une bonne couverture des ongles. De plus, son odeur n’est pas tant désagréable. Pour sa tenue, je m’attendais à un peu plus, mais il faut dire que j’ai toujours les mains dans l’eau, étant à la maison avec mes bébés garçons.

    Nail Treatment + Colour

    I haven't tried essie polish in a long time. I found it runny and took forever to dry in the past which didn't work out for me. My nails have become very dry and brittle this winter so I decided to try this new formula. I like neutral shades so I chose 01 treat me bright sheer polish. I applied two coats and it dried relatively fast but it the polish was still a bit soft so i made a few smudges. So far into day two and no chips and my nails don't feel dry

    Very healthy glow!

    I received this product as a gift from Chickadvisor.com in exchange for an honest review.

    I chose the colour 'Minimally Modest'. I applied 2-3 coats one night, and then applied an extra coat the next evening. The colour is very pretty, and makes my nails look so natural and healthy. It was very easy to apply, and it didn't take long to dry at all. I'm very pleased with the product. My nails do feel a bit stronger, and hopefully this will help stop them from chipping and splitting.
