Essence launches a new nail exclusive collection next month, called Gel Nails at Home which will be joining the permanent range.
All those well-known nail polish problems are finally over: no more chipping or scratches. Instead, you can now look forward to long-lasting, shiny gel nails that can be removed by simply peeling them off! The technology is based on an innovative “peel-off gel base” formula specially developed for essence, which hardens within 10 seconds underneath the essence mini LED lamp.
Fabulous: this unique concept works with any essence colour & go nail polish, so there’s absolutely no limit to your choice of colour for the gel nails! And as always with essence, the gel nails at home products are available at an unbeatable, low price. Professional tools, care products and unique gel effects will be joining the popular range in February 2014. The absolute highlight is a cool mini LED lamp with a practical USB connection. From now on, all beauties can apply their gel manicures wherever they go at any time!
International Launch Date – February 2014 exclusive to these countries: Germany, Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Italy, Ireland, Egypt, Oman, and Venezuela
Romania Launch Date – March 2014
Essence Gel Nails At Home Collection Spring 2014
Cuticle Pusher – €1.99
Push it! This premium cuticle pusher with a soft sandstone tip is ideal for preparing your nails for a long-lasting gel manicure. The professional tool is gentle on your nails and cuticles and produces perfect results.
Gel Corrector – €1.99
Corrections are a must! For a perfect gel manicure, it’s really important that the gel is applied correctly and that any residues are removed from your cuticles before curing the nails underneath the mini LED lamp. You can do this gently and easily with the gel corrector, which has a washable silicone tip.
Mini Led Lamp – €19.99
Mini to go! Absolutely unique and super practical: here comes the mini LED lamp with a USB connection. From now on, all gel nails fans can apply their gel manicure wherever and whenever they like. Thanks to the integrated USB cable, a plug is no longer needed. Simply connect to a PC or the power adapter of your smartphone and you’re ready to go. On top, the lamp cures the gel in just ten seconds per nail as the lamp only has to concentrate on one nail at a time. Ideal when you’re on-the-go or on vacation, extremely time-saving and with the USB plug, it’s ready for action at all times!
Effect Gel Top Coat – €3.49
Effects, effects, effects… now also available in the gel nails at home range! You can now lovingly decorate your nails and turn them into true eye-catchers. The gel effect manicure is totally easy: first, apply the peel off gel base and cure underneath the mini LED lamp as usual. Then paint your nails in your favorite essence nail polish and leave to dry. Next, apply one of the five unique effect gel top coats and cure underneath the LED lamp again. If you like, you can leave out the nail polish step and let the effects be the star of the show on their own without any colour. Available in a total of five different shades and effects.
3 in 1 Nail Oil – €2.99
After gel treatment! Pampering care shouldn’t fall short with your gel manicure. The 3in1 nail oil with a practical ball applicator is a must! The 3-phase oil combines three benefits: it has a pampering formula that moisturizes your nails, strengthens them and promotes growth. It also softens your cuticles and can be applied after your gel manicure for an additional boost of care.
And here’s how it works:
Use the nail file to get your nails into the desired shape and then carefully push back your cuticles with a rosewood stick. Next, put some cleanser on a lint-free cotton pad to remove any dust, oil or grease from your nails. Now it’s time to apply primer over your entire nail so that it is completely covered from the half-moon to the tip. Nail file around €1.99, cleanser around €2.49 and primer around €2.49.
Apply a thick, even layer of the peel off gel base over the entire nail and cure for 10 seconds under the mini LED lamp (press the essence logo on the lamp). Peel off gel base around €2.99 and mini LED lamp with 10-second power-off mechanism around €19.99.
For a natural french look:
Apply a thick, even layer of the french gel top coat over the entire nail and cure for another 10 seconds under the mini LED lamp (press the essence logo on the lamp). Use a cotton pad soaked in cleanser to remove any residue from your nails – and your gorgeous nude gel nails are done! French gel top coat around €2.99.
For a colour look:
First, remove any residues of the cured peel off gel base from your nails with the cleanser. Next, paint your nails with your favorite essence colour & go nail polish and leave to dry completely (not under the lamp) before continuing with the next step. Apply an even layer of the clear gel top coat on top of the colour & go nail polish and hold under the mini LED lamp (press the essence logo on the lamp) for another 10 seconds. Remove any new residues with a cotton pad soaked in cleanser again – and your colour look is done! Clear gel top coat around €2.99
Important: The tip of your nail should be completely covered with the gel. Please note that there may be some gel residues on your skin or cuticles after application. Make sure that you remove these with a rosewood stick or the gel corrector before curing your nails under the mini LED lamp.
