        This color is great, but it chips really easily even when using it with the top coat. I would not recommend.

          Really love this product. It dries really quick; when I paint one hand, and finish painting the other hand, my first hand is already dry. I used 2 coats (because the color (Lace me Up) was a tad sheer) and then the clear gel coat. It has been 4 days since I have painted them and I have been elbow deep in dishes each day. Not just rinse and wipe dishes either. I am talking about greasy, cooked on barbecue junk and to date, they look like this is the first day that I painted them.

                  I generally don't paint my fingernails very often because no matter what I use (or who does them) they chip within a day (sometimes within an hour of doing them). This product has completely changed all that. I applied this 5 days ago (two coats of color and the gel couture top coat) and it is still chip free. It goes on great. The brush is amazing! And all in all, it dries within 10 to 20 minutes or so. For sure worth trying. Just follow the directions and use the specified top coat.

                    This is second time I have tried the essie gel. I was told to give it a second chance! It chipped badly. It didn't go on and cover well. I used another similar nail gel product which worked well and lasted for 10 days. This lasted 3 days...and it's not terribly cheap. Not going to try any longer.

                    I was looking for a brownish nude, something a bit funkier and not too precious. This color is great and the brush is awesome for easy application. I have to give 3 stars though bc I had a chip just a few hours after applying. Boo! I added another coat and hopefully all my digits will hold up from here on out.
