      Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

      I will start off by saying that after 15 years of artificial nails I decided to go with my natural nails. My nails were constantly peeling, splitting and etc. I tried many different combinations but this is what's worked for me. I use Essie millionails as a base coat, 2 coats of the gel couture color and 1 coat of the gel couture top coat. Thanks To Essie I now have strong and beautiful nails.

      I only wish they would bring more colors.

          Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

          I purchased this based on other reviews but I did not have good results with this product. The colors are really pretty and the applicator brush is great but this product is not worth your time or money. This lasted no longer than regular polish but took forever to apply and dry. I gave it two stars because the color was really pretty. If you are looking for an at-home gel polish, this is not it.

            Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

            I do my own manicures because I like to change colors frequently -- am one of those who collects colors and polishes. In my experience Essie's Gel Couture is the best polish I've used. It is long-lasting and the top coat made for it shines and lasts. (You don't need to use a base coat.) I used to change polishes every few days. With this I can go a week or more w/o the need to refresh or take it off. My only negative is that this collection doesn't have a lot of colors compared to a brand like OPI. I hope as this gets known, the company will produce more colors.
