    Essence users

    Is it just me or when you're using Essence do you seem to use a lot more than you use compared to other polishes

    I actually use less though when I used it I want expecting"correction" like HD speed or other polish.

    Yeah I was thinking I use less too. If not less it’s a normal amount.

    You like the results you get from Essence right? It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the whole “for maximum gloss use sparingly” is a bunch of bull simply to appease customers and make them think they’re getting good value when in reality it’s very expensive compared to other polishes.

    From my little experience with Essence, I too see better results when I use more on the pad... But since it’s smart to follow the manufacturers directions I usually tend to use it sparingly like they say... Maybe that’s why my results with it are usually garbage. Lol.

    Based on their directions, this amount would be too much to start off with... They seem to suggest 3-4 pea sized dots max. If I use that little my results are poor.



    There’s still plenty left in my 1st bottle. I’ll never buy this stuff again.

    I use 3-4 quarter size if not bigger drops for results I'm happy with, it is a great primer for McKees coating though

    Less. 3-4 pea sized drops when using as a finishing polish.

    How would using more be a negative in that situation?

    I could never get it to finish correctly using it sparingly. Maybe it was my pads? Idk? I also had to use more than what was directed.

    I got tired of playing around with it and would usually grab my trusty bottle of HD Polish instead. Much cheaper and problem solved for me.

    Less product and slower speeds.
