I've been looking for something healthier than using a gel lamp and cheaper than going to the salon. I think this is finally it! It's a nice natural look but polished and shiny and my nails are finally being allowed to get healthy and strong! Especially after I switched to a non-acetone polish remover - which I can actually use with this polish!
This polish goes on super smooth and the color is divine! I actually saw someone on TikTok with it on their fingernails and I got a glimpse of the name. That made me look it up on Amazon and here we are! Highly recommend!
Essie Gel Couture system has been easy to use, especially on my toes. I have found there are a few tricks to getting good results, however. The polish takes forever to dry between coats, and it is a MUST to get it dry between coats, and the edges of nails need to be sealed with the top coat to prevent chipping or peeling. So here's how I use the Gel Couture products 1) Start with nails cleaned with 100% acetone, 2) Prepare a bowl of ice water, 3) Apply first coat of Fairy Taylor color and after 1-minute soak nails in ice water for 2 minutes followed by shaking off water drops, 4) Repeat application and ice water soak for a total of 3 coats of polish. 5) Apply top coat, being certain to "top" or "cap" the edge of nails. 6) Reapply top coat every other day, focusing on tips and nail edges.. (The top coat dries much faster than the polish.)
Nail polish usually never stays on my nails longer than a day. It has something to do with my nails. I’ve even tried going to the salon and using gel polish. This stays on though. It is a pretty pink shear color. I have had in for almost two weeks and no chipping at all. I highly recommend this product.
This is the best polish I’ve ever tried. It lasted over two weeks and stayed fresh and shiny like there were just done. If my nails didn’t grow it could have lasted longer! 100% recommend! I’m buying more colors!!
It is very sheer but that’s what I wanted. I applied two coats and the top coat. On day 8 and not one chip, which never happens for me. My nails aren’t great and have ridges but this polish seems to stick really well. Made my 60 year old hands look better.
Fantastic! I have thin nails and I could not ever get nail tips or buildable nails. I did love the look of white tips. Finally a product that comes off with finger nail polish but last for 2 weeks before you need to redo them. I did buy this kit adn the Essie gel color in white.
