Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I put 2 coats of the purple color on my toe nails and finished it with a clear gel top coat. After a month, the color still shines and did not chip. See attached pictures. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. I highly recommend this product and I will buy it again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average I received this product as a free sample from The color I received, Sit Me in the Front Row was a BEAUTIFUL cross-seasonal rich pink/fuchsia. Immediately after applying 2 coats and the top coat, it looked FANTASTIC. In fact, my husband asked if I had them done at the salon. However, the next day, the tips were already showing signs of wear. The manicure lasted about 3-4 days before it didn't look presentable anymore. The color was great, but the 3-step process didn't seem worth the end result.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Somewhat disappointing Pearls of Wisdom looked very different in the bottle. It is a deep plum, which I liked, but when I applied two coats, it had a murky brown tinge. With the Essie Gel on top, I thought it would last at least a week. It didn’t: it chipped along the tips and sides, which meant applying another coat of polish and gel. The one other polish I’ve used in the new collection, Beauty Nap, lasted more than a week. I’ll be sticking to the lighter, brighter shades in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the color and bottle design I am in love with the bottle design of the gel polish, as well as, the colors. This gel polish is simple to apply and gives a nice finished glossy look. A few reasons I will stick to the regular essie polishes is that the gel doesn't last any longer and it destroyed my nails once I removed it. It did remove easily, but caused my nails to peel horribly. I think I am just not a gel nail polish kind of girl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great wear I received a free sample from I thought the process was smooth and my nails dried fast. The wear has been great, no chipping and very little wear on the tips. I have received a lot of compliments on my nails with most assuming I had them done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Color Options I received a sample from PinchMe and really liked this product. It stays on for a long time without chipping and that's very important to me. So, while I received this product for free, all opinions are solely mine!
