Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fun Sample From PINCHme! I received a free sample of Essie from PINCHme and both my co-worker and I tried it. We got a lovely shade with a topcoat. I thought it looked very nice once applied and had an extra sheen to it. And a cool shaped bottle as well! Unfortunately, it did not last all that long. My co-worker is a mom of one and we both tried this on Thursday morning at work. By Monday, we both had the nail polish flake and/or chip off. Mine just flaked right off while I was having a beer at Oktoberfest, and my co-worker's chipped off quite a bit while tending her household and son over the weekend. All in all, it was very pretty, but didn't hold up well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent Mani material I received this duo of polish and gel coat as a free sample through PinchMe. I am an occasional nail polish user. I would use it more but usually have trouble with it lasting. This nail polish though really surpassed my expectations. I put it on with the gel coat and was surprised that it lasted nearly two weeks!!! Amazing. I have 5 daughters and I let them try it as well and even with their busy hands playing outside and in the sandbox, riding bike and other kids' activities, it withstood their heavy activity level. I was very impressed, and loved the color too!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting I received this as a sample from pinchme. I have natural nails currently after having acrylic nails for forever. I usually find that polish stays on my natural nail for about 3-4 days. On my 10 year old daughter it stays on 1-2 days. I painted her nails and mine with the Essie gel couture. It's a beautiful color and it lasted a good 8-9 days. My daughter got about 5-6. What I couldn't believe was that it stayed on after she took a bath. For some reason usually I can paint her nails and normal polish would come off immediately but not this polish!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long lasting BUT I love the new Gel Couture formula because it is very glossy and wears like iron. While I don't get 2 weeks out of it, I do get several days, which is a vast improvement over any other polish. The flaw in this formula is that the polish thickens and gets gloppy about halfway through the bottle. Any suggestions for remedying this, Essie? I hate to waste half a bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Surprise! I received this product set through Pinchme in exchange for a honest review. I have maintained a weekly pedicure for 17 yrs. I have tried most brands and mostly stick with OPI. I have had gel nails applied once. I really liked this product! I love the smaller bottle size, because who ever using the bigger bottles up. It's finish was nice and shiny and it lasted without chipping for the entire week. Best of all, it was just as easy to remove as a non gel polish. I will be shopping for other colors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yay! Essie mail polish from Pinchme! I received a free bottle of the Essie gel polish with topcoat. Color was bright and cheerful. Bottle shape was a bit odd to maneuver while painting my toes. The base coat seems to dry a tad fast, I know, usually fast drying is great but when it dries before you even finish a swipe of the brush, that's bad. Left lines and clumped a little. I think it lasted a shorter amount of time than other gels I've tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting I received this nail polish as a sample from Pinchme. My regular nail polish usually lasts about 3 to 5 days. When I used Essie and the gel top coat the polish lasted up to 8 days. The finish was true to color and shiny. The gel coat did not change that, it looked the same. I did my regular routine and housework and it did not chip or fade until the 8th day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chips after a day I tried Essie's Couture line because it promises a gel manicure without the need for a light or specialized removal process. I won't use it again because it chips almost immediately. I followed the instructions to the letter, including going against my best judgment and not using a base coat. While the color of the polish is beautiful and the brush is the best I've used, because it chips almost immediately, neither of those points make this polish worth the price. After the first manicure chipped on day two, I removed the polish and tried again, following the instructions to the letter but my polish still chipped after a day, which rarely happens when I follow my usual process and use my usual products. After the second manicure failed, I had to soak my nails in denture cleanser to remove the stains caused by the "no base coat" instruction before I could re-do my manicure--the third in four days--so my nails would look decent for the holidays.
