The closest thing to a lamp-cured gel manicure I have found, and does a lot less damage to my nails. I will likely purchase more colours. I did not use a base coat, only the colour and top coat.

PRO: For me, lasts significantly better than regular nailpolish (1 week with some tip wear). I really like the colour (Sew Me), the top coat is extremely glossy, the brush makes applying neatly …

I had a salon manicure with Zip Me Up, which is mint. The color wore for 13 days (I removed it because of a self-inflicted chip). This is pretty impressive for a non-gel manicure for me. Application was very VERY streaky, but evened our with a second coat, so I don’t know how I would feel about doing this myself. At about $12 per bottle (plus the cost of the top coat), it’s even more than my …Read more

I've always been quite faithful to Essie regular nail polishes. Love their range of colours, the brush, the formula and low level of chemicals used in latest versions. Just like so many other reviewers I had high hopes for this new range. I thought it would be more lasting than the regular. How wrong one can be! I seriously cannot think of a worse nail polish than this. I tried this on …Read more

Because I love Essie's colours and have had a fair amount of success with polishes from their regular line, I decided to splurge and try a medium beige-pink shade from Gel Couture along with the top coat. In Canada, these polishes cost 13-14 dollars each when not on sale. I will say, the polish applied beautifully and it was a true, creamy opaque. I had high hopes, using it with the First …Read more

I purchased a set of Gel Couture polishes upon the recommendation of the sales person at Sally’s. I chose ‘rock the runway’ a candy apple red, and the top coat.

The first time I applied on my nails I wasn’t super impressed. I had some chips after a couple of days and the color stained my nails really badly even though Essie stubbornly claims it doesn’t. On the plus side, the top coat is …

I had high hopes for this because I love the essie gel setter top coat, but I was sorely disappointed. The colour I bought was a pinkish-white (not advertised as sheer), and it required 3 coats to not look streaky. Once the top coat was applied, the polish was even less shiny than my regular nail polish. Within 3 days it was crinkling on my nail and I had to take it off. I'm definitely …Read more

Love these polishes! If combined with an Essie Gel top coat, they'll stay on pretty nicely. I love their colours and the brush is quite thick so it's easy to apply them neatly. They're well pigmented and there are loads of pretty colours to choose from. Would recommend! Along with the ones from Sally Hansen - these are the best long lasting polishes that I've ever tried.

LOVE Sheer Fantasy for a natural looking nail. But, don't cover with their recommended top coat because it shrinks!

What a waste of money. I bought these because my usual nail polish never lasts more than one day. I have peely nails and tend to start picking at my nails if my nail polish lifts. I was hoping these would help prevent that based on the video reviews I have seen. Unfortunately these only lasted 1 day on my nails :(. They started peeling at the edges and I had massive tip wear! I followed the …Read more

I wanted so badly to like this polish but it did not live up to its claims or my expectations. I got a manicure in the TOUCH UP colour...very pretty and professional. It chipped on one of my nails shortly afterwards. I was able to go back to the manicurist and get that particular nail touched up...great! By day three there was significant wear on all of my nail tips despite the fact that I …Read more
