Today I have a review of one of Essie's new Treat Love & Color range. This range is Essie's first advanced care and colour formula, designed to give you stronger nails with less breakage and peeling in just 1 week.
There are 3 pastel sheers available and I was lucky enough to be sent the gorgeous 'Sheers to you'.
As with all these "seems too good to be true products", I was very curious and immediately started testing it out. I followed the instructions and applied 2 coats to my nails and refreshed every 5 days (it suggests 7 but I noticed some chips at my tips on a couple of nails). After a week I noticed that the nails on my cinderella hand did indeed feel a little stronger (my right nails are weaker than my left). After a couple of weeks I noticed a vast improvement. Although I don't suffer with peeling, my breakage rate was massively down and my nails held up at a reasonable length far longer than they usually would.
Sheers to you is a soft baby pink with pink shimmer. It gives your nails a very pale pink sheen and the shimmer just makes them glow. It's subtle enough to wear for all occasions and the fact that the strengthener has a tint of colour makes this a godsend for those too lazy to give themselves a full on manicure.
As with any product, consistent use is important and I am going to carry on using it when I'm not wearing a polish. However because of the tinge of colour, this isn't a great option for wearing underneath a polish. For that I'll stick to my other clear strengtheners.
If you're interested in trying out one of these Treat Love & Color strengtheners, you can grab them from Boots & Superdrug stores priced at £8.99 each.
Hope you've had a lovely weekend. Let me know what you think about this product, is it something you'd use?
