Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I received this Essie polish set for free from PinchMe in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I have used other non-UV light gel polishes and have been extremely disappointed. So I was not holding out much hope for this one. Fortunately, I was thrilled with this brand! The polish is thick and the brush is shaped so that it goes on super smooth. The color was bright after two coats and the top coat was really shiny. My polish usually chips after a day or two, even with the other gel polish (non-UV light), but this polish lasted for the full 14 days. Would have lasted longer but I wanted to change the color. I will definitely be buying more of this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bold, long lasting color! I received a bottle of the top coat and a bottle of red compliments of Essie and PinchMe. The cap on the red bottle was cracked so I used the polish right away as it was already starting to get thick and dry out. The red color is very bold and vibrant. I then used the top coat of course which I appreciated because it makes the polish last longer of course. Top coat was very smooth going on and gave a nice shine to the red polish. I'm still using the top coat actually with other colored nail polish. I will definitely be purchasing the Essie brand in the future when I use up what I have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Shiny Gel Polish I was provided a sample of this Essie Gel Polish for free from Pinchme.com for my unbiased review. I was first impressed by the very fast drying time between coats - it really is only 60 seconds! The Gel top coat went on smooth and looked fabulous! I polished my nails right before bed, and woke up to amazing looking polish!! Unfortunately, I did not get the same long lasting results that others have reported. The polish started chipping on the tips of my nails by day 3. Even though the polish chipped within a few days, I still highly recommend this product. The fact that it dries so quickly is a HUGE benefit. I've never had a polish that legitimately dried so fast without ending up with dents or smudges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this polish! I have been using Essie Gel Couture polish for several months(I bought it when it first came out) and I absolutely love everything about it from the brush to the colors! It is easy to use and it really lasts and I love that more and more colors are coming out. Turn n Pose is my favorite color so far but I cannot wait to add to my collection of 12 bottles. Thank you so much for making this product - it is the best! I have recommended it to all of my friends and I have made them fans as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! This polish system is wonderful! There's no lamps, or driers, or any other special equipment needed, you don't even need a basecoat! The brushes are designed so the color goes on smoothly and easily, and the top coat adds instant shine. Two coats of color, a top coat, and you're done! It couldn't be easier, and it dries very quickly. I bought this color, gala-vanting, and I love it. It's a perfect deep maroon for Fall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than regular polish Overall I thought this product was better than regular polish, but it didn't last as long as gels at a salon. I received a free sample from PINCHme.com in the color "pinned up". It was a great beige pink color and overal a great neutral shade. I thought the application was very easy and I really liked the wider brush compared to standard Essie polish. It was easy to apply although I did need two coats for a solid look. The top coat was very easy to apply and it dried very quickly- within 2 minutes. The top coat gave the shine like you would see in a salon so I really liked that because they looked professionally done. My polish lasted about three days before it started to scuff and chip which is better than regular polish on my nails but not as good as a no- chip which lasts around 10 days. I can't wait to try some of the brighter colors and I definitely will use it again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm impressed! I have not had luck with other "gel at home" products but boy, was this different! I only have it in one color but wish I had it in 10. I can't believe how long it lasts and how thick and shiny it is. Additionally, I have three little boys under 5 and I have found that it dries way faster than conventional polish. A+ review all around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My absolute FAVORITE nail polish! Received an unmarked bottle to sample, with instructions to wait for a review. So glad I now know who makes it because I can stock up! This is the best nail polish I have ever used. Super easy to apply & lasts a really long time without pealing, chipping or cracking. Love it!
