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 1 out of 5 by from VERY DISAPPOINTED NOT WORKING! I ordered gel couture platinum grade finish top coat and several gel couture colors including It Factor, Gala-vanting and Spiked with Style last week. I decided to try an at home manicure after getting mani with It Factor at nail salon. My professional mani a couple of weeks ago had good shine for about 4 days. I hated that the nail polish chipped at the ends. When I tried top coat and several of the colors I purchased at home it was awful. Gel couture colors did not apply evenly over my nails. The shine also didn't last. I was very disappointed in the products. Expected longer wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Shiny Gel Polish I was provided a sample of this Essie Gel Polish for free from 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 Pleased as punch! Not a big nail polish wearer because it never lasts more than a day for me no matter what I try. A friend said she had good luck with the new Essie Gel so I bought a kit and gave it a go. I'm hooked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color and shine I love the new gels. They last such a long time and then you can actually remove them without scraping!

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.
