I have been a long time lover for Essie Nail polishes and last year Essie have introduced a new gel formula Essie Gel Couture line. This new Gel Couture line is 2 step system nail polish wear where you get that high shine gel effect finish within comfort of your home. I received three shades from the brand to try along with the Gel Couture top coat. The collection carries a great range of shades and colour to enhance all skin tones. The shades are pigmented and you get the true shade with two coats and lasting power is pretty amazing too. The Top Gel coat which is the last step carries a high shine finish that protects and offers that long-lasting properties to the nails. It add-on life and durability to the nail polish. For me it lasted for good four-day without any chipping most of the times 2 day is what regular nail polishes lasts on my nail.
- V.I.Please is a deep pink shade with blue under tone and you get true color with to codes
- Inside Scoop is a light baby pink shade with transparent coverage
- Front Page Worthy is a navy blue with shimmers, and two codes gets true color.
The brush is much wider and fuller than the original Essie polishes and slightly curved to give that sleek finish to the corner and curved part of the nails. The brush also scoops out a perfect amount of product where you don’t need to go back for more product. I’m definitely really impressed with this new brush, it gives more précised application within one swipe. And the packaging carries and new twist into it, very sleek-looking and have that extra edgy look with thick glass finish.
You can find all the Gel Couture nail polishes are now available in great range of shades in your nearest drugstores as well as online at Essie.ca.
