I think the name of this is a little deceiving as you kind of expect it’s only for nail art or maybe you wouldn’t pick it up for just regular polish when of course it dries all polish not just nail art so y’know.. just wanted to get that off my chest first of all. Next.. oh wow these work! I was sent a bunch of essence goodies by a subscriber, Jenny (Hi Jenny!) a couple of weeks ago. She had my address from maybe 2 years go when she sent me some Ikea storage I couldn’t get my hands on near me and so I wasn’t expecting anything at all and was very surprised to open up the package to find she had sent it. but anyway.. the stand out product of the bunch has to be these express dry drops, I’ve never tried anything like them before and in all honesty just didn’t see how they could work but they do really speed up the drying time with no smudging.. very impressive!
Unfortunately these aren’t readily available in England but I know it’s a popular drugstore brand in Ireland and Fee from Makeup Savvy recently brought back some bits from her holiday in Lanzarote (post here) so perhaps they are easier to find in other european countries but I will definitely be open to trying other versions of this kind of thing now that I have seen that they can be quite effective!
Thanks again Jenny for introducing me to something awesome and of course the Christmas package x
