Hello beauties!

Essie introduces its new line Gel Couture Nail Collection which feature 42 shades. The new nail polish formula provides the shine of a gel nail color without the needing of an UV lamp. Having a gorgeous, shiny and long-lasting manicure has never been more easy since the new Essie Gel Couture is applied as your regular nail polish. As a first step you’ll only need to coat your nails with a thin layer or base coat, then apply one or two coats of your favorite Essie Gel Couture color and finish with a glossy special top coat.



International Launch Date – June 2016

I am very curious about the results of this new gel polish from Essie: can’t wait to try them out!

These are my new favorite nail polishes. I’ve test driven them for months now. I usually wear Dior and default to Chanel if I can’t get the color in Dior. All the rest wear off within a day or so, even using base and maintaining fresh topcoat. But nothing, Nothing wears like these Essie polishes! And the color stays fresh and luminous. I also use the Essie Gel Couture Topcoat. And, I’ll admit, I cheat by using a top coat by Seche Vite, which has a lot of toluene, but consequently wears like iron. Even then, these new Essie Gel Couture polishes are blowing me away! And I’m wearing the After Party shades which would show every flaw. Highly impressed.
