A couple of months ago, while going to the store to buy a third bottle, I stumbled upon this Essence Gel-look TopCoat XXXL Shine. It only cost 2.99€ ($4) so I decided to give it a go.
The bottle promises to add a glossy shine topcoat, leaving a gel-like finish on nails.
I have to say…I’m now on my second bottle. It’s not as quick to dry as the Mega Shine one, but… apart from that, it’s very comparable! The nail polish lasts a long time without chipping, the nails are left with a really pretty finish and you don’t need to use a lot to give a perfect topcoat.
Also, the product doesn’t seem to thicken after using the first time. The first bottle that I used maintained the same thickness from start to finish, so it’s a good thing (my last Mega Shine was a bit thicker the last few times that I used it).
Seriously. This one is really good.
Check it out.
The nails look so pretty! And that effect lasts throughout the whole time you have it on. On the photo I have Essie’s Foot Loose but I’ve tried it with several different brands and it always worked perfectly.
So, if you’re a Mega Shine lover, you may want to try this one out.
Now tell me, any other products out there that you find comparable to Mega Shine? Please let me know! =)
