Essie Gel Couture

Hi guys! Do you remember my post about the Essie advent calendar? Since I got doublets of a few polishes and one empty door Essie was going to send me some new polishes. What I got was three full size bottles and two Gel Couture polishes. Unfortunately I already have the shades that I got, which were Bachelorette bash, Allure and Russian roulette. However I haven’t tried the Gel Couture polishes so that was a nice surprise!

The Gel Couture polishes are supposed to last on the nails for up to 12 days if you use them with the Gel Couture top coat. Both the bottle and the brush are twisted, and even though the bottles are pretty and unique I don’t really like them, just because they are so much harder to pose with for swatch photos. The polishes have the same wide rounded brush that Essie’s have in Europe, which makes the application really easy.

Stitch by stitch is a pink creme polish that covers in two coats. The formula is really good and it’s super easy to apply.

Model clicks is a dark burgundy creme polish that covers in two coats. The formula is a bit runnier than Stitch by stitch but it’s still pretty easy to apply.

I can’t say wether or not these polishes last longer than regular polish, because I don’t wear polish that long. The longest I go without changing polish is about four to five days, and that is really long for me since I usually change polish every or every other day.

Have you tried any of Essie’s Gel Couture polishes?
