      Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

      I love this polish! I know that it claims to last for up to 14 days but I only get about 7 before it starts chipping. However, I'm a nurse and washing my hands constantly is really hard on polish so to get a full 7 days out of 1 application is amazing!

          Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

          I am really happy with this polish. While it doesn't last as long as a gel manicure from a salon, I can get a good 5 days to a week out of it before it starts to chip. I am so happy I found this product because biweekly professional manicures were getting pricey and regular at-home polish chipped so quickly it wasn't worth my time to apply it. I have about 10 colors of the Essie Gel Couture polish and it's nice to be able to keep my nails looking nice at home.

            Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

            I bought this in Twill Seeker. Really now, the color is EVERYTHING, but the formula is just not working for me. I could have paid for a couple of Revlons or L'Oreals and wasted less time. 4, no less than 4 attempts to get a smooth coat, no go.

                    Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

                    I have used many brand of gel polish even color dip (which is decent) but thus one is the first one that ever lasted 14+ days despite how hard I am with my nails. It even helped my hard to grow nails grow and reduced breakage. I actually had to file my nails down because they were getting too long, something I've never really had to do before!

                    Great colors too... do wish they had a bit more holographic ones though, kind of in style right now.
