Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nail polish! I almost never polish my fingernails. I mean, what's the point? The polish chips so quickly, it's not even worth my time. Until now. I am literally hooked on Essie Gel Couture nail polish. Although it doesn't last nearly two weeks on my fingernails like Essie boosts, it does last about a week and to me that is good enough. Now, on my toenails that is a whole different story. I can easily go two weeks without needing to re polish my toenails AND they still look great. The color palette is also amazing---great trendy colors mixed in with traditional shades. I cannot say enough great things about this polish. It is now the only polish I will buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Going strong on day 6 I decided to add a review since the only other one is very negative. I have used several "14 day" polish systems and this is the best. I am a working mom and that means my nails take quite a beating. I've been looking for a good product since I developed an allergy to products that require the light. I followed the directions carefully (including the one minute between coats rule. I will probably polish before the 14 days because I want a color change. I have already recommended to friends and can't wait to try other shades.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice staying power So I'm a working mother of two, with a newborn. My hands and nails take a beating. I'm happy to say this polish is still holding up 7 days later, which is more than I expected. This polish initially seems to go on a bit runny- not terribly so but just less thick. Once you know that, you can adjust and it's fine. Drying time is fairly quick, and On The List is a nice cheery coral pink. It's worth noting that when you pair it with the top coat (which is awesome) the color deepens in a nice way. So far, color me impressed (sorry for the pun). I'd buy in other colors!I received this product through in exchange for my unbiased review of the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bottle design awful I was so so excited about this polish. The brush was great, loved the curve to the bristles - and the color and coverage was fabulous. But the swirly bottle shape is so unnecessary. It is harder to grasp, and I dropped it. Not Essie's fault I am a klutz - but it shattered along both the smooth curvy parts - spilling out the whole bottle and actually leaving small slivers of the bottle everywhere as if it was a delicate glass that shattered. I cannot image any other bottle shape so thoroughly cracking into so many pieces - the whole bottle wasted, a complete mess of polish everywhere as it 100% spilled. I can't comment on the 14 day claim - my nail polish came off when I was trying to clean the spill, and I'm not going to buy another couture color. Not sure if the top coat would work with other polishes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long wearing, rich formula! I received this product as a sample through PinchMe. Let me start by saying I love the packaging. Not only does the shape of the bottle look cool, it makes it easier to grip & hold. The brush is the perfect thickness & shape. Regular polish typically chips on me the same day, so I do prefer long wearing gel formulas. I don't want the damage that comes from salon gel manicures, so this product is a great option for me. I love that I don't have to buy an expensive UV lamp or go through any extra steps. The 2 layers of color & topcoat applied beautifully. I didn't experience any chipping until day 4, but it was minimal. My manicure looked fantastic for a week,so my only negative with this product is the claim that it lasts 2 weeks. However, I have never found a non-UV polish that lasts this long on my nails. I don't care for the coral shade, so I will definitely be picking up a few more shades!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was so perfect on my daughter for a wedding! I received a bottle of the color "on the list" which is like a slight orange-like peach color along with a bottle of the top coat in exchange for my honest review, & I wasn't excited about the color initially, but it turned out as the perfect color for my daughter to wear for my nieces wedding that we had to go to a few weeks after receiving the nail polish. Both of my kids and I were actually in the wedding, & the color matched my daughters dress perfect because my nieces wedding had peach in her wedding colors! We took the nail polish with us to a nail salon and the nail artists tried talking me into having my daughter get gel nails instead of using this nail polish, but I turned it down only because I couldn't afford the gel nails (especially being for my 10-year old daughter, even though they said the gel nails would last 4-5 days longer than regular nail polish, so I was tempted). I'm SO glad I didn't get the gel nails, because even a week after painting this Essie polish on my daughters nails, she still didn't even have the slightest chip or scratch in her polished nails! Normally she would have chipped her polish just within a couple days. But they looked perfect for the wedding which was 3 days after applying this polish (the nail artists suggested the polish may not last until the wedding) - but not only did they last, they lasted twice as long, & I didn't have the expense of getting gel nails. It also dried much faster than I would've expected. I will absolutely only use this type of polish from now on, I love it..! Thank you to Essie & Pinchme for supplying me with the free sample of this polish & top coat in exchange for my honest review - it really did exceed my expectations, & the timing (& color) couldn't have turned out any better!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't last long I received a dark burgundy shade and top coat to try. I noticed the top coat partially removed the color, even though I followed directions. Then after another day or so the color was chipping. I do have my hands in water some, but I expected the color to last longer. I might try a much lighter shade if I ever bought this product. I'm very happy to have been chosen to test this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice color and long lasting I received this item for free to review. I am happy to say that I really liked it and will definitely purchase it when I use up my freebie. The polish is a really nice, neutral shade. The color is Spool Me Over. The top coat is the magic trick that makes your polish last! I've been wearing it for 2 weeks and haven't needed to touch it up at all. Really excellent product!
