Essie Gel Couture Review

Essie Gel Couture Review | Style Through Her Eyes

I tried out the new Essie Gel Couture this week and oh my shining, shimmering, splendid! It's honestly been a couple of months since I last gave myself a manicure so it feels quite nice to have super shiny nails right now. Firstly, I have to talk about the super chic bottles. I feel like the shape of them made Essie 10x more chic. The color I received is called Make The Cut which is basically a pearlized grey and beige aka "greige". It's a unique shade unlike any others in my current collection!

Applying the formula was so incredibly easy! This is also an important factor in choosing a nail polish for me because after all these years of painting my nails I can still make a bit of a mess. The curve-hugging brush makes it easy to apply and results in little to no mess outside of the nail. I honestly think I had like one spot to fix which isn't bad at all!

I applied two coats of the gel couture and then added the top coat which is what gives the color its gel-like shine. The photos I included in this post really don't do it justice!

This new polish duo is said to last for up to 12 days and can be removed easily with an acetone-based remover. Some of the nail polishes I own last for about a week so I am anxious to see if this one will go beyond that. There are also over 100 colors to choose from priced at $11.50 each. The top coat is also $11.50 but once you have it you won't need to buy another one I imagine for a long time depending on how often you use it. If you're interested in trying out the new Gel Couture I would suggest picking them up at either Kohl's or ULTA where you can use coupons!

Disclosure: I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster. All opinions are 100% my own.
