essie Treat Love and Color Strengthener Nail Polish Review

Whether I go out with a fresh manicure or bare nails, I have always been told my nails are nice and healthy. I take it as a compliment, my nails do look good, even when they’re bare.

I always look for nail polishes (especially base coats) as well as nail polish removers that are formulated to strengthen the nails. essie’s Treat Love & Color provides a 1-step care and colour formula to strengthen normal to dry/brittle nails.

I’m a fan of essie nail polishes, their colours and names are always creatively amazing and I was super excited to try out their Treat Love & Color nail polishes. The fact that there’s no need for a base or top coat AND strengthen the nails, it’s literally an all-in-one nail polish! I absolutely love the shade “in a blush”, it’s a lovely soft floral white cream shade – a great choice for those who love neutrals on their nails.

While the shade and claims are great, I couldn’t help but dislike the brush as it created streaks. The only way for it to not show any streaks is if I applied 3-4 coats, which ended up making the drying time longer. Other than that, I really liked how smooth and opaque the nail polish turned out. By Day 5, the nail polish still hasn’t chipped. In terms of nail care, my nails do feel a bit “stronger” but I haven’t noticed a huge difference.

Overall, I do love the formula and how no base and top coat are needed. I would have to repeatedly use this product for a few weeks to really see if there’s a huge improvement in my nails. As of right now, this product is more for the colour than the treatment. Would I repurchase? If the brush was better, definitely. The all-in-one from this nail polish has won me over.

  1. Sounds like a great product but the brush streaks would drive me crazy! I definitely love the idea of it not requiring a base or top coat and that it helps strengthen the nails though.

  2. Too bad about the streaks that would drive me nuts! I'm terrible at applying nail polish so I wouldn't be able to fix it lol. Love the colours though!

  3. This new formula sounds great! I don't know if I could skip a top coat though, I just love the smooth shiny finish that it gives.
    Does it have the same small brush as their other polishes? I'm not a fan of their brushes… why so small?!?

    1. This does add a nice smooth shine but if you want that extra bit of gloss on the nails, go for a top coat 🙂

      Yup, it's the same small/skinny brush as their other polishes 🙁

  4. I tried In-digo For It! from this collection and didn't have any brush issues. Maybe some wonky brushes made it into the mix or maybe it just doesn't play nice with such a light colour.
