Hi my essie lovers! Today I am so excited to share with you essie’s new nail care line TREAT, LOVE & COLOUR! Yes, “essie brings a little TLC to its signature sheers”, how excited are we?! TLC is their first advanced 1-step nail care + colour range with 60% less peeling and 30% less breakage in just one week. No base or top coat required!

TREAT: Restore dry, brittle nails to a healthy look in just 1 week

LOVE: Pamper your nails with a formula that locks in moisture and perfects

COLOUR: Enhance nails instantly with visually brightening pigments for a healthy glow

Let’s jump right in to swatching: 

‘treat me bright’ – (one thin coat) caring formula with collagen & camellia extract, nails look instantly perfected with brightening sheer powder white pigments

‘sheers to you’ – (one thin coat) caring formula with collagen & camellia extract, nails look instantly perfected with nurturing pink blush pigments

‘laven-dearly’ – (one thin coat) caring formula with collagen & camellia extract, nails look instantly perfected with neutralizing adorable sheer lavender pigments

I have to say that these all really did neutralize and perfect the appearance of my nails. Keeping in mind that this is a CARE line (not regular polish) and is meant to have subtle sheer coverage I really, really love them! Another thing that I love about these TLC shades is that the brush is wider and similar to the Gel Couture brushes (minus the twisted stem) which I think is perfect for sheer shades.

Active ingredients include:

MSM: an essential component of healthy nails, helps maintain nail integrity

COLLAGEN EXTRACT: a protein that provides strength and structure, largely found in the human body

CAMELLIA LEAF EXTRACT: a natural antioxidant extracted from the green tea plant

VISUALLY BRIGHTENING PIGMENTS: colour technology uses micro-fine layering to create subtle luminous effects

I’m dying to know what you guys think? Personally, 2017 has only just begun and I’m already loving all of these new launches from essie (you can check out their new Ballet Nudes collection here).

essie TLC is available in salons and beauty retailers worldwide starting January 2017 (that means right now!) for $11.99. For more information be sure to check out

    Thanks for the review! I was really curious as to what the purpose of these was and am happy to know now. Sometimes I’ll wear just a base coat when I want a break, but my nails still look a little yellow. Maybe I’ll try one of these and see if it helps cancel that out!

      I used to do that also (just wear base) but it never helped with the yellow either, these do though! If you want to try just one I’d recommend ‘laven-dearly’ 🙂

    I’m so intrigued by these! Of the 3, does the lavender one do the best job at correcting for yellowing of the nails? I’m so impressed with how bright and white your nails look in all three shots!

      Yes, out of the three the lavender does the best job at correcting yellow (at least for me!) – thank you so much! xoxo

    Did these last night. Waited an hour before going to bed and they still felt tacky. Did the two coats as suggested on the box. Leave yourself A LOT of time for them to dry as I woke up with pillow marks on all my nails so I’ll have to re-do them today.
    The application is really smooth and I love the curved brush – it fits my nail shape perfectly. The laven-dearly is lovely. This is my first time using this product so I can’t say how effective it is yet, but I’m optimistic.

      Try Essie’s fast dry top coat, it is a miracle product! I can do my nails before bed and within 5 to 10 minutes of applying the top coat my nails are dry! no crease marks or smudges in the morning, and they are super shiny!

    I got the pretty pink colour last week. It hasn’t chipped yet! I love the sheer colour. A definite win for me!

    Did you apply polish all over your nails, including the tips? Or go over the tips with some kind of white product? Is the tint from the polish not actually that strong over white?

    • Lauren

      Yes, these are sheer treatment polishes meant to treat the nail. They are not very pigmented, they just give your nails a delicate hint of colour. 🙂
