Comments about Essie Ballet Nudes Gel Couture:

I loved this polish from day one to day 14! Yes over time it wears and tears but it lasts longer then most polishes I've gotten! I love the in-store color selection! I highly reccomend these fun colors!

Love the other pale shades of Essie Ballet Nudes Gel Couture. Just not this one. Too streaky, even with several coats.

    Comments about Essie Ballet Nudes Gel Couture:

    I am a huge Essie fan and finally decided to try their gel polishes. It says it lasts 14 days, however I am on day 2 and this is chipping off already. I'm really not sure how its even better then the normal Essie nail polish. Other then a increased price I do not see what's so special and it really disappointed me.

      Comments about Essie Ballet Nudes Gel Couture:

      Works very well. I purchased At the Barre, which is a soft, cinnamon-ish nude. It applied very smoothly, just make sure you apply their separate top coat as noted in the directions. Otherwise, it lasted a long time, and looked very professional and polished.

              I have been using this for about 2 weeks. I love to get gel manicures but they are just too expensive and usually chip within 2 weeks. I purchased this right after I took off a gel manicure that had disappointed me. I loved the color. Easy application and looks great. I was able to wear it for about 7 days before I got a small chip. After 8 days I had a few more. Worth the money. Easy to use.

                Comments about Essie Ballet Nudes Gel Couture:

                I normally never wear nail polish because I chip it almost immediately and then it just looks tacky. And normal nail polish is too hard to remove so then it just slowly chips away. But this stuff LASTS! The only reason one of my nails started chipping early is because I accidentally my nail with the sharp edge of a knife so of course it pulled it off. Otherwise, my nails would have stayed perfect for a lot longer than one day! It was also way easier to take off than normal nail polish. I could easily peel it off. No harsh chemicals or alcohol solutions needed. And I loved the color. Of course, you need to get the gel top coat though!

                  My nails are stronger since using the gel couture. It goes on easily and looks great every time.

                      I tried and really disappointed it. When u put on nails it doesn't look pretty and u can see lines so doesn't go smooth. Other color is good but not this one.
