New On The Scene! Essie Gel Couture

by Kia C


I missed you guys so much! I’m not leaving you, just trying to get me life together. But at least I came back showing you a BRAND NEW line, this is Essie GelCouture. This new line is 42 shades of gel polish that promises up to 14 Days of Luxurious Wear and No Lamp Needed.

Essie Gel Couture

*Look how cute these bottles are*

For those women who love Essie polishes (oh that’s me) but want a super long wearing polish with a great shine, Gel Couture is for you. There’s a group of pastels, brights, neutrals and deeps. So it’s something for everyone. The brights and pastels definitely call to me.

It’s a 2-step system, color and top coat. No UV lamp needed. For swatching purposes I only put the top coat on 2 nails. The top coat definitely hides any flaws in your application and get rid of any bubbles.

The formula is thicker than your regular Essie polish and it’s more opaque. I had to use 3 coats for the lighter shades. I adore how it levels out and how easy the application is. The brush flatter and curves, those are my favorite. Seriously, you can’t really apply this wrong. The removal was easy, so no worries.

Now I have to admit I don’t normally gravitate towards gel polishes because I switch my polish too often but I love them for my toes. I hate painting my toenails so I always use a long-lasting polish. I’ll probably be rocking Rock The Runway on my little piggies for the entire month of July.

If you like what see you can find ALLLLLLL 42 shades will be at your local Rite Aid for around $10-11.
