        Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

        This stuff is incredible! With other brands, I would paint my nails and the polish would start chipping sometimes as soon as the next day. With Essie Gel Couture, I can go over a week, sometimes two, and it doesn't budge. It is seriously the best!

              Love the Essie Gel. It goes on easy, dries quickly and lasts for almost two weeks! No weird smell and it is easy to remove. No different than regular nail polish. I am a believer. Never going back to regular polish.

                Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

                I got salon gel manicures every 3 weeks for the last 2+ years and finally decided my nails couldn't take the damage anymore. I've tried several brands of "gel" polish and this is by far the best. I do apply it salon-style, though-- 3 coats of color and 2 coats of top coat. Let them dry about 5 minutes in between coats and my manicure lasts for at least 2 weeks. I am buying every color!

                    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.
