Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect colors I started using this about two weeks ago. I love the colors they offer for the gel. My hands do a lot of dishes by hand so most nail polish tends to chip as soon as I do the dishes. So far this is the only one that did not chip after doing dishes. Very easy to use. Apply 2 coats of the color. Let dry. Apply 1 coat of the gel. That's it! Like I said really easy. And it stays on. I received this product free from pinchme for my honest and unbiased review of product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing wear! Great wear time with 5 days from application and just a tiiniest wear on the very edge of the nail. Been practicing without base and with regular Gel coater. Wear is totally fabioulous but Gel coat bubbles (being just 4 months in use). Totally recommend. Though it is pain to order it from London due to no ability in Russia :-<

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Surprisingly disappointing I received this polish set as a free sample from, and was asked to leave an honest review. Honestly, I was excited to try an at home gel set that didn't need a whole light setup. When I get a professional gel manicure, it lasts for weeks without chipping. I followed to instructions exactly. The first day- gorgeous vibrant shiny color. Second day- dull chipped nails. They lost the shiny luster almost immediately, and my very short nails chipped from typing at my laptop. A few days later I noticed the top layer was cracking, causing more chips. I kept the polish on for about a week, and when I removed using acetone, the most disappointing thing of all. My nails were very stained, which does not happen when I use other brands of polish at home, nor when I get a professional manicure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from completely worth it I got this polish around 2 weeks ago. I did both fingers and toes nails. It took a minimum amount of time to dry. I placed only one top coat on and the polish hasn't chipped as of yet on my toes. My finger nails did chip around a week, however I most say that I've been in the pool most of the days and went in right after polishing my nails. This polish combo made my day, I was able to stay home polish my nails my self and have a better outcome that going to the salon

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long wear I usually use an at-home gel polish with the light and the removal hassle. This really lasted eight days with barely a chip. It was easy to apply, although I did not think it was the smoothest application. It was a little streaky. It dried quickly as did the top coat. It really did last eight days with just some chipping at the tips. This is a product I would get again, and Essie has a quality reputation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Nail Polish, Lasted many days! I absolutely love the Essie gelcouture Nail Polish, I received a bottle of Beauty Marked gelcouture polish and a bottle of the Top coat from PINCHme in exchange for my honest review, both the polish and top coat went on smoothly, took a little more time to dry but this polish is a gel polish and not one of the cheap polishes, I used 2 coats of the gel polish and 1 coat of the top coat per the instructions and it came out beautifully, wasn't really thick and gunky, my nails looked smooth with nice color and shine, the polish lasted about 10 days on my fingers but I do wash my hands alot, so it might last longer on other people, the bottle is a good shape for holding while polishing and the removal was quick and my fingernails came out clean, I just used a regular nail polish remover, I am very happy with the performance of Essie gelcouture nail polish and will purchase in more colors

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long wear, great coverage. I received a sample in exchange for an honest review. I am impressed with the color and coverage. I applied two coats of base color and one coat of top color. The color lasted several weeks on my toe nails with minimal wear. It lasted less than a week on my fingernails but I have always had issue with fingernail polish. This did last longer than others.
