Lately, nothing compares to Essie Gel Couture. I love this nail polish, guys.
Let me start by saying I’ve never gotten a gel manicure before in my life. I own far too many bottles of nail polish to pay someone else to do them. I have tried the at-home version before with a brand I thought I liked. I bought the special polish and the special gel top coat but I actually found the quality to be worse than if I did regular polish & regular top coat. I thought I’d never bother trying again.
Something about Essie swayed me though, and I picked up the Gel Couture color Pre-Show Jitters. It was the exact color I was looking for; though it’s technically white, there’s just a slight pink hue. I picked up the Gel Couture top coat too, and instantly it felt different than my previous foray into at-home gel manicures.
I loved the color and rocked Gel Couture at a wedding I went to recently. I didn’t notice a single chip or scratch, despite doing my nails 3 days before the event. When I do my nails, I usually get a good week out of a manicure– usually 5 days and I push it to 7 with some chips and scratches. With Gel Couture, I went a full 2 weeks without a chip. They looked completely fresh for a good 10 days, with maybe some minor scratches by the time day 14 rolled around.
I’ve done my nails many times since then, but I keep thinking about that Gel Couture… and I can’t wait to add new colors to my collection!
Get yourself some Essie Gel Couture now and thank me later.
