    Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

    I'm so so happy I found this nail polish. Best thing ever. Regular polishes don't stay in my nails for lomger than three days no letter what I use. This one lasts me at 5-6 days. Some colors from this collection stay on even longer. The only problem with them is that not every store has them plus the color variety is not that great yet at my local Ulta. However, this is the best thing I've ever had on my nails! Absolutely love it. Looks thin and natural comparing to regular gels.

          This polish didn't last as long as shellac but longer than regular pol8sh. It dies fast so less chance of smudges.
          I like that no ligjt is required.

              Not a gel - it chipped the first day and I spent days dabbing on more to keep my nails from breaking and chipping. Get Red Carpet or a gel manicure.

                Comments about Essie Gel Couture:

                I purchased this product because I had gotten a professional gel manicure and LOVED IT but I can't afford to get my nails done all the time. I researched different at-home options and decided to try the Essie Gel polish. I'm really impressed! It doesn't look as amazing as my professional gel but it looks pretty good. I put the polish on Friday night, now it's Thursday and it still looks good. It wouldn't say this is a 14 day polish but can make it more than a week and still look good. I haven't tried taking it off so I don't know how easy that process will be.

                        Finding this polish set (must be used with topcoat in opaque white bottle) has saved me so much of my valuable time! For me it means, no more waiting to get my nails done and having to deal with the embarrassing "grow-out". Everyone thinks I'm spending a lot of time at the salon these days as I am now able to change the color very quickly and with lots of variety In colors. The shine from the topcoat is absolutely incredible and the dry time is super fast! I will definitely be keeping this duo in my arsenal.
