**UPDATE** I've tried several more colors since first trying it months ago and I still stand by my original review below.  It has such amazing staying power, the shades are gorgeous, and it is most definitely my HG nail polish!  So recommend!!!  **ORIGINAL REVIEW** I think I finally found my HG nail polish! I purchased this after hearing Tati from Glam Life Guru rave about it and I have to say, she definitely hit the nail on the head with this one! I purchased both a color and the top coat, and somehow they create magic together! I'd say this lasts about 2 weeks. After seven days, I started to notice super minor tip wear. At about the 10 day mark I noticed some chipping. And now I've had them on for a full two weeks, and the polish has finally started to chip more noticeably. I was surprised but oh so pleased with how long it lasted. Previously, I used OPI several times, but it would chip after 2-3 days. Even though this Essie Gel Couture formula is more expensive, I think the price is totally justified, especially if you don't want to have to repaint your nails every week. They have so many colors and all of them are gorgeous. It did take two coats to get full opacity (I wore a pretty grey color from their Ballet Nudes collection); paler shades may need three. Overall, highly recommend! ...read more

I love this brand and colors! I don't normally do my own nails at home but if i purchase this brand i bring this in with me to my salon. This brand is the only one with gel I know that ive used and it stays for a good 5-6 weeks without chipping. I would most definitley recommend this for in home or salon use! SO many colors and so vibrant! ...read more

I have a really bad habit of picking off my nail polish color as soon as I see the first chip in it. I've been trying to save on gel manicures from the salon, but I always end up having to paint my nails every other day or so. This is the only nail polish that will last me 3+ days (I'm REALLY HARD on my nails). The color applies even and opaque after two coats of polish. After applying the top coat, this leaves my nails feeling strong and smooth--almost like that new gel mani feel. Once you have the top coat, the polish is about $9 a pop. I've invested in the basic colors I wear most often (a dark blue or wine for winter and a light pink/cream color for spring and summer) but noticed they have a lot of really great colors out for spring (favorites including a light gray, lilac, powder blue). As I said before, I'm a polish picker. I still pick off this polish, but it has lasted longer (and is a bit harder to pick off) than any of my other nail polishes (mainly Essie, Julep, OPI). Also, my nails don't look damaged after this polish comes off like a gel manicure would make them. At the end of the day in my experience, this is a good alternative to bi-weekly manicures. ...read more
