Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy application! I received a sample of this polish from, but my review is my own.I received a light blue color of nail polish. It was a fun bright color! The bottle was easy to hold and the brush was great at getting coverage on the full nail with one or two swipes. I did two layers of color and the top coat. Drying time was fairly quick, and there was no smudging. I found that the gel went on smoother than a typical nail polish. It only lasted about three days before it began to chip. Overall, I liked the ease of use and quicker application time due to a larger brush, but it lasted about as long as a typical nail polish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the new brush and color I received this polish and top coat for free as part of the PinchMe sampling program, but my review is my own. I love the bigger, thinner brush that's part of this product. It was very easy to cover my nails in one to two swipes, and I felt like it was easier to control. I also loved the color saturation and felt like two coats was enough to get balanced, deep color. I am hard on regular nail polish; it typically chips off in a day or two. I was hoping that this would really last longer, but I found that it chipped within 2-3 days and have to be removed. I will definitely continue to use, but I don't feel like it had any better staying power than regular nail polish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the color Sit me in the front row is a great name for this color. It is a fun great color that will make you stand out. The application is very simple with a great video and instructions on the website. The top coat is what makes this pop. I really enjoyed wearing this for the first couple of days. I was hoping it would last for more then that but chipping did occur on my finger nails. I also applied to my toenails in which it stayed until I removed it with nail polish. I guess my only dislikes were the claim for the 14 days of no chipping. It did not find this any better wear then any typical nail polish I would get at a salon. This is a great nail polish to go out on a date or special occasion.I received this polish and top coat for free as part of the PinchMe sampling program, my review is my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ESSIE GEL This is a truly great product. I have used other Essie nail polishes in the past. This color and top coat was sent to me free to try from . 1st off, I am not a pink person, however, I did try it and actually loved it. Recieved numerous compliments over it as well. It held up well over the 14 days. I wash my hands a lot and it still held up. No chips no dulling color. I have since purchased 2 more colors in the darker tones as that is what I prefer, my daughter took this pink. Thanks to for letting me try this, I may not have purchased this product otherwise. When you do purchase individually there are no instructions, be sure to apply 2 coats of color then the clear top coat. I also did not have to hunt for this Essie Gel polish, I have since found it at Kohl's & Ulta.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great for the toenails I received this product as a free sample from for my honest review.I really do not go to the salon to have a manicure because usually the nail polish chips off within a day or two. I hoping this would not be the case for gel couture. The directions were to apply two coats of the base coat and one coat of the top coat. I applied first and second coat and waited about 10 minutes to apply the top coat. There was no clear directions on how long to wait between coats. The first day I had not chips but by the second day they started chipping. I was so wanting this type of application to be much better but unfortunately it was not the case for my nails. On the bright side I also placed these on my toenails and I had no problem with chipping or issues. It worked great and I was happily surprised.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great color- disappointing chipping I received this polish and top coat for free as part of the PinchMe sampling program, but my review is my own. I'm fairly rough on my nails, but gels (salon) typically hold up. I put this one and within the first day, the tops were all chipped. I kept it on and the rest continued to stay on and hold up- just disappointed in the fact that the tops were chipped right away.The color is great, love the thicker brush. Just disappointed in the chipping.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sit Me In the Front Row needs to go to the back. I have three other colors of the Essie Gel Couture polish and I love it, but the 4th color is awful. Not the color itself, but the fact that it stained my nails kind of an orangy-pink and I can't get it out. I only left it on for 3 days so it's not like it should have stained. Also since taking it off my nails are drier than usual. In addition to the Gel nail polish I must have 30 colors in the standard polish and I've never been this disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I was excited to try this new polish. I love the color and it applied very easily. It looked nice on my nails. What I was anxious to see is if it will last 14 days. It did chip on one nail after 2 days. The other nails lasted about a week with very minimal wearing off. The polish did remove easily. I received this product free from in exchange for my honest review.
