Review for: Wearing Hue (creamy delicate white w/slight blush of champagne shimmer) more...
I wanted to give this a 3 and a half star rating. This formula is awesome but after about 10 uses the bottle does get gunky and I feel you have to get a whole new one or thin it down. When you thin this kind of long wearing nail polish down too many times it loses its integrity. You have to always put the first coat on as thin as you can and then the second coat will look a lot better, even if the first coat looks streaky.

Review for: Platinum Finish (clear topcoat) more...
I have completely replaced my salon gel manicures with the Essie gel couture collection. The top coat prevents nails from chipping and gives a shiny finish just like a gel mani. I am pretty rough on my nails, and this polish even outlasts some tough CrossFit workouts.

I love this formula from the Essie collection mainly because my nails look super shiny and last for a long time compared to their regular nail polish! I love the "Fashion Faceoff" shad  in particular due to it's neutral grey white pearly sheen that tends to bring out your tan in the summer ( or winter!).

Review for: P.R. Stunt (creamy lavender pink shimmering w/gold) more...
Essie is by far one of my favorite brands. It is pretty expensive though so if you can buy it in a bundle, I would!! Stays for a long time, great shine, and doesn't chip easily! The gel coutour collection doesn't really make a big difference on my nails but they keep color pretty easily. Major bonus for this is the rounded brush end!

I love this brand! I think it’s a great nail polish, especially on the cheaper side ! I recommend a couple of coats 3-4 to really get that clean look you’re probably looking for ! This light blush color is also a favorite of mine, since I am a professional, I always need to have my nails done .

This nail polish formula is better than the regular Essie line. I think it is more lasting, but it still chips after a couple of days. It is also more expensive than the regular line and you need to have the top coat that is from this line!

This color is a bit transparent, but I love the way it looks. Similar to pinks used at salons with a French manicure. It is a neutral color that goes with everything. But if you are looking for something more solid get a creamier color.

Review for: V.I.P (deep, berry violet hinted w/red) more...
Not my favorite. I had this on for 6 hours and it was still smudging. I was very disappointed because I have always heard people rave about Essie! I wasn’t a fan of the brush either, it was too big for my nails!

Essie products are spot on. I love this collection it is perfect for any occasion. I love nudes and this color is fabulous for that. It’s easy to apply, stays on long, and the color doesn’t fade. Highly recommend
