The Nail Polish That Changed My Nails
You all know I LOVE to paint my own nails at home. It’s therapeutic to me, saves money, and also allows me to switch up my mani in a pinch. I’ve been a die hard at home manicurist for years now and won’t ever be going back to a salon. Well unless I want some fun nail art, but I’m determined to learn that on my own. So when Essie asked me to try out their latest Treat, Love & Color collection, I was intrigued. Let me tell you why though, because this isn’t just another line of fun colors from the beloved brand.
I’d say I have fairly strong healthy nails and I love my natural shape. They grow fairly quickly and rarely break. However, there’s one complaint I have about my nails, which I thought was normal until now. My nails split (or peel) ALL THE TIME. Do you know what I’m talking about?

Essie Treat, Love & Color
With a wide range of colors to choose from and also really great metallics, I was excited to try this new collection. The Essie Treat Love & Color nail polish collection promises stronger nails with 60% less peeling and 35% less breakage in just one week. I honestly thought nothing of it when I put the polish on. But then a week later my lilac polish was still going strong and I hadn’t peeled a damn nail! It was then that I realized, oh my god this works! For those of you that follow me on Instagram and Instagram Stories, you know I was wearing that lilac polish for about EVER.
The trick behind this nail strengthener powerhouse is a combination of camellia extract and collagen. These ingredients combined with a more breathable formula help to allow your nails to not only repair but also strengthen in 1 step.
Lastly, don’t forget to top off your Essie TLC with the Essie top coat. I typically reapply a top coat to my nails every 3 days or so. It will extend your polish THAT much longer. I personally rarely ever use a base coat, so go straight to 2 coats of your favorite Essie TLC color. The colors I am LOVING right now are Daytime Dreamer (featured above),
