        This product is amazing. I'm so tired of painting my nails and by the next day, they are already chipping. This polish, along with the top coat, lasted me a solid week and I'm honestly thrilled. PLEASE do not stop selling this product!!!

          Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

          Love this polish- I have 7 bottles now and out of my extensive polish collection this is my go-to polish. I wouldn't say it lasts 2 weeks- I mean if you like a flawless polish that is. But I can get a good few days out of it with sleek looking nails! And that's a win for me! Beats painting them every day!

          Easy to use. Dries fast, but chips too fast. For me the edges chipped in 2 days.

            I loved the finish product it dries fast and looks great but I noticed after a couple days it becomes gummy and slides off now disclaimer I used big spray the night before so I don't know if it reacted with the polish but I will say that if you are looking to save money instead of going to the salon this is the way to go!

                I bought one of every light color based on what the young lady suggested about how wonderful this product was. She was correct- this dries quickly and lasts long. I am very please and will use this again and again- I have enough of an assortment to last me into the fall.
