    Comments about Essie Summer Gala Gel Couture Collection:

    I have a lot of these Essie Gel Couture polishes. I love them. I have tried multiple ones and this is the best. This one in particular was not good. The formula was fabulous....the color was not. I thought it would be more of a bright or electric pink. It was very dated and looked marm on me. I returned it quickly to trade for a better color.

        Love this Essie formula, it really does last. The pic on the Ulta site makes it seem a bright dark pink, in reality with 2 coats of color it is more red. Otherwise a great polish.

              Comments about Essie Summer Gala Gel Couture Collection:

              This entire Essie gel polish collection is amazing! Pastel colors need 3 coats (and then the top coat) and the brighter colors are good with 2 for the most part. It is long lasting! I can't stand chipped polish and this holds up for days! Super easy removal too, nothing special needed.

                    I love the Essie Couture collection!! My favorite go to polish. I have thrown away all my polishes except this line. The polish stays on and looks fabulous. I get tons of complements.

                        This is a perfect summer color. It's a metallic color that looks shiny without being glittery. My manicure lasted over a week.

                          I use beautiful nail polish in my art work and while I'm there I get the double benifit of wearing it for happiness and inspiration.
