Not worth the price at all

Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

Started chipping the same day I painted my nails, and was peeling by day 2. This just isn't worth the price for me.

    Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

    I love to paint my nails and gel colors seem to go on pretty neat and smooth. However, I've noticed Essie gel is hit or miss. I love Fairy Taylor, and this new one, Haute to Trot, but the other 5 colors I've bought in-between were streaky, chipped easily, or the color sucked.

      Love this product ! It's similar to a no chip but I can take it off at home. Will definitely be going this route as it's much easier on the nails.

      Not a fan-color applied well, shine disintegrated color

      By Rae

      from USA

      Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

      I would not recommend. Color goes on great, but gel-like shine disintegrates the color leaving spots that appear not polished with a messy finish. Followed directions exactly indicated on product. Used it twice to make sure. Same outcome each time

          Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

          This nail polish lasts so long on my nails. I've had it on for almost a week and just wear on the tips of my nails. I really wish they had more colors. I'm not to thrilled with their offering.
