Product Review: Essie Gel Couture

Essie Gel Couture in Take Me to Thread

Guys, I recently tried Essie Gel Couture, and I’m in love!* I have never had a mani last this long. Ever. What I love about it is that you get the durability and shine of gel polish but you don’t need to set it with a light and you remove it with regular nail polish remover. No need to soak your poor nails in acetone.

Check out the Day 8 photo below, taken right before I removed it. Pretty great, huh?

Day 8. Not a chip in sight!

It’s a two-step system: first you apply two coats of the polish, then the special Gel Couture top coat. Essie’s Gel Couture comes in so many colors, you’re sure to find something you like. The only bad news? At my local salon, they charge $5 extra for Gel Couture. So it can add up.

You can buy Essie Gel Couture online at Ulta. You can get the special top coat here.

Have you tried Essie Gel Couture? If you have, tell me about your experience in the comments.

This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’m thinking I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Wish me luck!

Also, I started my photography class last week. I’ll try to post here about my progress.

*I used the Gel Couture polish from the wall at my local salon. I did not buy a bottle, nor was a bottle sent to me for review. Opinions are my own.
