Today, I am reviewing Essence Studio Nails XXL Nail Thickener. Let’s jump into the review to know my experiences with the product.
A gel finish without visiting a nail salon – the XXL thickener makes it possible. The fast-drying base coat hardens your nails with its special acrylic formula. The results: instantly and visibly stronger nails with a great finish. It also optimizes the durability and shine of color nail polish.

My Experience with Essence Studio Nails XXL Nail Thickener:
I am quite lazy when it comes to nail care. I have never taken care of my nails. My nails have recently started chipping and cracking. So, this was the time for some nail care. Hence, I picked up Essence Studio Nails XXXL Nail Thickener.
The nail thickener comes in a tiny transparent glass bottle. This tiny bottle has all the product details on it. The brand name is mentioned with grey color and the product title is written beautifully in turquoise fonts with silver background. The screw on cap is off white in color. The applicator is of good quality. The bristles are good and give precise application. They spread pretty well and just two swipes are needed to cover the complete nail.
The liquid has a very runny consistency. It is not thick and spreads well on the nail. It has an intense nail polish smell, which fades in sometime. The liquid is translucent milky in color. It looks natural on the nails and does not impart any color to them. It looks like a clear nail polish. The nail thickener dries out pretty quickly, within a minute.
I apply two to three coats of the nail thickener. I am quite impressed with results of the product. It adds thickness to my nails instantly. It helps in strengthening the nail. It makes my thin and brittle nails strong. It prevents my nails against chipping and cracking. And to my surprise, it also contributed to faster nail growth. It works great as a base coat. It actually gives acrylic or gel like finish to the nails.
The effects last for approx. 4 days; after that, it starts to chip. Overall, the product is great but results are not long lasting. I mean, when you use the product the results are great; once, you quit using it, the results will be gone.
