Happy Friday! I posted about this nail polish on Instagram the other day, and today I wanted to do a quick Essie Gel Couture review. I was drawn to this nail polish because of the claim that it lasts up to 14 days. Normally, I can make it about a week with my nail polish, but that is with touching up small chips. I was hoping that this would make it the week without having to touch it up.
I have to say that so far, this polish has exceeded my expectations. I have tried two different colors, and I’ve made it to 11 days with nearly flawless nails, not needing any touch-ups at all. To use this polish, you do need to purchase a special top coat. There are no lamps needed, and you use normal nail polish remover to take it off (my favorite is this one). It also has a wider brush than the original Essie bottles do. I did notice I needed to soak my nails in remover for a bit longer than I do normal polish.
This polish is currently available in 42 different colors…I will definitely be picking up some new ones for fall!
This was taken on day 11 of wearing my Essie Gel Couture nail polish. Only the very tips of my nails on some fingers are showing signs of wear. This color is The It-Factor.
