        I am a nurse and regular polish usually comes off the first day i wear it because i am using so much hand sanitizer. The hand sanitizer eats the paint. With the essie gel it lasted for 3 straight 12 hr shifts and still looks great.

            I've been using this for about 2 months. It lasts WELL over a week. My nails were short and horrible and I wasn't expecting these amazing results. My nails are TOO long now and it's blown my mind. Amazing....

              At 13 days after applying gel polish and top coat, hardly any noticeable chipping. I could have probably gone another couple days before taking the polish off.

                I went in to ulta since every other place that carries essie nail polishes was basically out of these. I work in retail so manis dont last more than 3 days but these polishes are so amazing, they do not chip and im already going on 5 days. Wish the top coat would provide more shine but hey nothings perfect. Will be slowly buying more colors to take with me during my mani days.

                  Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

                  Was going for an everyday look. Absolutely love the color. I work in an operating room, and a big requirement is to not have chipped nail. Most polishs chip sooooo easily with my nail type. This nail polish with top coat gives me around a week before it starts to chip, making it way worth my while.

                      I'm not so sure about it lasting 10 days, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of five. It has lasted a bit longer than normal polish, but only about three days for me before I got some small chips, they've been easy to touch up though. I love the brush, it gives professional looking results. I wish all nail polishes had this brush. I got Twill Seeker and love the color. I've been getting lots of compliments.

                        I purchased this after the glowing review Tati (a well known makeup YouTuber) gave this product. I was skeptical after so many nail polishes I've tried that chip within the first day. This stuff is so impressive! I was shocked. It stays much better overall than a regular polish. Does not chip the first day whatsoever. Stays on for days, versus after the second day my nail polish is typically trashed and I have no choice but to take it off. The formula also dries faster than regular polish. I would vote for this over a regular polish any day of the week!
