**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!

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!
