Essie Gel Couture is a gel-like manicure system that does not require a UV lamp or a base coat. Gel Couture shades last longer than regular polish (up to 14 days). The easy two-step process involves first, apply two coats of Gel Couture Color (allow manicure to dry for 60 seconds between coats), and then apply one coat of Gel Couture Topcoat.
I’m a big fan of Essie Gel Couture. This particular colour gives full coverage with one coat. I also use the gel couture topcoat which gives a perfect manicure. With one tiny repair and one additional topcoat I get 10 days out of this manicure. It’s on sale… hope it’s not being discontinued.
After a week of wear, this nail polish shows minimal wear. It has chipped off on two nails but I am still very impressed. It truly is long wearing and I am happy with my purchase. Please note that I did use the Essie topcoat with this polish, which was recommended by many purchasers. I will definitely buy this in more colours!
I am currently wearing this colour as my home manicure shade, and it's been wearing extremely well for ten days now. I usually prefer darker shades, but my nails are quite short presently, so I ordered this colour as an interim colour. It's a pretty lavender creme. It's is long-lasting, easy to apply, and the finish is incredibly shiny, especially with the Gel Topcoat. Those who like neutral, or lighter colours will surely adore this colour! This is a superior polish that's quickly becoming my favourite due to its shiny finish, and exceptional longevity. It is so worth ordering from NPC; I think you will love it, like I do!
Like the wide brush. Covers in2 coats, easy to apply.
