Essence the gel nail polish from Wilko

Layonie Jae, Me time, Nails, shopping

Let’s talk nails!

I used to be obsessed with acrylics and would get them infilled every 3 weeks! I loved acrylics so much so that I learnt how to do them. I have a few old posts of my attempts, here is a link to one of them: My black and gold acrylics. However after a while I became less obsessed about acrylics and fell in love with my own natural nails. I still love acrylics on other people but now prefer to have my own natural, I used to love having them long too but now I prefer them short!

I paint them every other night once the kids are in bed, as I find it therapeutic!


Essence the gel nail polish from Wilko – Layonie Jae

My favourite polishes right now are from Wilko, if like myself you don’t care to spend too much on nail varnish then I definitely recommend these. I have quite a few of their ‘the gel nail polish’ polishes and they are really affordable at £1.65 each. The polish brushes are quite wide and can be applied in only 2 or 3 strokes and they have a nice creamy consistency which usually means one coat is enough, depending on which colour you are applying, which I think is perfect for busy mums on the go!

I have 15 of their polishes and these are the colours that I have:



36 dare it nude
69 all about us
44 on air (glitter polish)
34 candy love
54 dream on
42 frozen kiss
10 true love
11 4 ever young
15 hey love
68 free hugs
67 love me like you do
52 amazed by you
45 yummiiii!
22 I heart my blue jeans (matt polish)
64 island hopping

I prefer not to buy expensive polishes because I tend to re paint my nails every other night so it doesn’t really seem worth it. I get bored really easily and after 3 days tops, I just have to have my nails a different colour!



Have any of you used Wilkos nail polishes before? Do you like them? I love them! Today I am wearing 69 all about us and have 44 on air on my ring finger nail, which I think is a nice combo for the new year!

Wishing you all a happy Monday and a positive week ahead!
