I have always loved Essie nail polishes, but found that they don’t last too long on my nails, so when I heard Essie were bringing out gel polishes and I saw how cute the bottles were I KNEW I had to try them out. These came out about May time and after buying a navy shade to first try out, I have not been able to stop using the Essie Gel Couture polishes. Despite the many different nail polishes I own, I just always go back to these 🙂
These are currently my 4 go to shades, Model Clicks an ‘aubergine wine’, Drop The Gown a ‘ruby red’, Surrounded By Studs a ‘deep navy’ & Take Me To Thread a ‘plush taupe’.
(Excuse my messy application, haha) but here is Model Clicks, my current favourite colour.
The packaging: A really nice, unique bottle. It feels weighty and expensive.
The applicator: A perfect applicator. I really like wide brushes because I find they apply the product best, without being streaky like thin brushes.
The formula: This formula is quite thick but not gloopy, so 2 layers of the polish are perfect. It lasts about 5 days on my nails (depending what I’m doing), which is really impressive because most nail polishes only last a couple of days for me 😦
How to apply:
Step 1- Apply one layer of the Essie Gel Couture to your nails and wait for it to try.
Step 2- Apply a second layer and wait for it to dry.
Step 3- Apply the Essie Gel Couture clear coat to set the nail polish, to ensure that it lasts as long as possible!
-The brush applies the product perfectly.
-The formula lasts way longer than other nail polishes.
-There’s a huge variety of colours.
-There’s no need for a base coat.
-You have to buy the Essie Gel Couture clear coat on top of these, so you can’t use your normal clear coat to set it.
