Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, but not my least for me I LOVE this product. I bought my first set (take me to thread+top coat) and immediately returned to buy gala-vanting and this color after applying my first manicure. I have weak, soft nails that usually maintain a manicure for 2 days, but this product looks great for about a week for me.However, I've struggled with this color. I ended up having to apply 4-5 coats for it to be opaque for me. I've seen swatches with 1-2 coats that look much better, so it might just be my nail. This color is pretty, but it is a little bit more orange-y and neutral than the pink in this photo suggests! It's great, though--very professional and classy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great neutral pink I have been waiting for this product to become available. The color is a nice neutral pink color. I did my nails 4 days ago and they still look nice. It's important to make sure oils and lotions are not present on your nails to get a longer lasting manicure. very happy with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasted 10+ Days! I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. I can tell you though that I am definitely going to purchase this line in different colors. I loved how easy application was, due to the size/shape of the applicator. It took a few minutes to get used to but really distributed the color well. Speaking of color... this is not one that I would normally pick up in store, based on color in the bottle, but on my fingers it looked fantastic. A little deeper/darker than in the bottle. A very fun yet still professional color that I didn't feel uncomfortable wearing in meetings at the office. I followed the directions and applied two coats which was perfect. Nice and opaque and not sloppy or thin. Used with the top coat I did get more than 10 days wear out of one application. Overall this is a winner for me!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Color But..... It is a very great color. I did my nails at the beginning of my day and when i went to get into the and got out the edges were coming up and my nails looks terrible. I love the color just wish it wouldnt have dont that. Yes, i even bought the top coat to go along with it..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must Buy I received this free from pinchme for my honest review. I really like this color and received allot of compliments on the color. It's a nudish color with a hue of pink. it lasted about 8 days was very shiny. I used two coats, the reason for three stars is because it was a little thin, three coats of the color polish might last longer. I would definitely recommend and buy Essie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty & long(er) lasting I got to try this polish as a free sample from PINCHme. I didn't get to choose my color, but it was a pretty shade of dark pink. Really, better for my daughters who tried it too. The at-home gels polishes really do last longer than regular polish, and are much easier to remove than a salon gel, but they're no miracle. They probably last a few more days than a regular polish but then they chip like any other polish. Salon gel manicures last until you have to have them soaked off. I'd say this product is great if you have an event you don't want to have chipped nails for yet don't have the time or money to get to a salon. Or, if you like to change colors often since it is easy to remove. While I really love the look of a salon gel manicure, I hate the removal and usually end up peeling it off myself, damaging my nails. This is MUCH easier on my nails. Generally, I'd choose an at-home gel over salon for this reason but if I was looking for a longer lasting job, or for something as important as a wedding, prom, etc, I'd go for a salon job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still on the fence! Well I really wanted to love this product, but I am still on the fence. First of all I received a free sample of the nail polish and top coat through and was super excited to get it. The color I received was a dark, dark blue. Not my usual color but I have to say that I did like it on my nails once it was on there, it is a very different color, almost black and I thought it looked good. But I did get a chip the very first day so I was a little disappointed. I waited a week and then touched up my tips by using a super thin coat over the whole nail. I did not get any other chips so maybe that was a fluke. After about two and a half weeks, I removed the polish. I used my regular nail polish remover and to my surprise and joy, it came off incredibly easy. Since it was such a dark color I did use one cotton ball per nail, but it all came off with no soaking or scraping and the color did not stain my nails in any way. So overall I like the nail polish and my nails did look nice and shiny, but I really don't see much difference between this and regular nail polish. I would like to try another color and now that I have the top coat, I think I will try a color that is more my style and see if I like it any better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Lasting and Fast Drying! I received this Gel Couture polish from PinchMe for review purposes and I am very happy that I did because I found a great new gel product for use at home! As a beauty and lifestyle blogger I receive a lot of product samples and buy even more products for testing purposes. It is rare that a product strikes me as unique or innovative, because, well, to be honest, I've seen it all. However, the Essie Gel Couture product did take me by surprise. First of all I was very impressed by the shape of the bottle, it is so much easier to hold and, it just looks chic sitting on my vanity. I have not seen any other polish bottles with such a cool shape. Second thing I really like about this line is the color range. Lets be real, Essie is known for having bomb colors and the Gel Couture line is no exception. The colors range from Neutrals, Classics, Avant Garde, Trendy and Chic. So, basically there is something for everyone, and every occasion. Now lets get to the meat of it. Essie gel couture's selling point is supposed to be about how long lasting it passed my test. I am notoriously hard on my manis because I am always cleaning and I constantly have my hands in water. I also work out a lot and spend a lot of time gardening, which also doesn't do my manicures any favors. This outlasted all other at home gels I have tried and stayed chip-free for 7 days. For a normal user I feel that this could last 10-14 days as advertised. For point of reference all other at home gels typically only last me 3-4 days and professional gel manis usually last me 7 days. So to say that I am impressed that an at-home gel lasted just as a long as my pro gel manicures would be an understatement. I also love that you don't have to buy Step 2 every time you buy a new polish color.
