Not worth it, polish cracks

Bl0ndi3 - 4 days ago, Verified purchaser
So I really want to like Essie gel polish but it’s just…not great. The colors are cute and apply easily but I find that some of them go on super chunky and streaky and don’t look good! On top of that, the “gel” top coat just looks like a normal top coat, doesn’t give it any extra shine or durability. The most annoying thing about Essie gel polish is that every time, within 2 days or so the polish seems to crack on my nails? And I don’t mean chip, there will literally be cracks in the polish without a single chip in my nails, it’s so weird. Ultimately I end up with chips within a few days so for the price point, it’s just not worth it for me.

Hi there Bl0ndi3! We wish you could see the results you were hoping for with the Gel Couture nail colors and we want to understand what happened just as much as you do. These long wear colors applied to clean, bare nails (no base coat) and topped with the Gel Couture Top Coat should last well over a week with no chips. Like all of our nail enamels, your color should look perfect by the second coat. If you would like to speak to us directly about your recent purchase, give us a call @ 866-313-7845 M-F 9 am-5:30 pm ET

this nail Polish is fantastic! I'm not usually a nail Polish person because after a few hours it usually chips and within a day needs to be removed. this stays on and on! if I had another coat of clear top coat (Essie brand to go with this) a couple days after my initial application, I get another couple days out of it! love it!!

Love the color! Also loved that it didn't need a base coat and that it comes off like any other polish. Did NOT like that the color is so embedded into the nails that didn't come off even after applying polish remover twice. Not using this type of Essie again.
1 reply from Essie Team team - 11 days ago
Hi Elzads- Thank you for your feedback on the essie Gel Couture nail polish. The best way to remove is by soaking your nails, this will ensure the removal. We hope that you will enjoy using as much as we do!

Not a good color for my skin tone and it chipped the first day of painting 🥺

Hi there! We wish you could see the results you were hoping for with the gel couture color ‘paisley the way’. This intense purple longwear nail polish with vibrant blue undertones should last well past one week. Be sure to skip the base coat and apply to clean, bare nails. And top with the gel couture top coat to seal in the color and shine for longest wear.

I’ve never had gel polish so I can’t say that it’s gel-like, but four days later it hasn’t starting chipping or lifting. Every time I polish my nails within hours they peel or lift because of how much I wash my hands, wash dishes, etc. This polish is working great!

Amazing polish! I can’t even believe it, I used 3 coats of the not what it seams color. And 1 coat of the gel top coat. It’s lasted great for 5 full days now and it’s still shiny! Honestly my nails never last longer then a day so this is amazing! I just wish they had more color choices (picture shows after 3 days and after 5 days)

ONLY DRIES WITH ESSIE TOP COAT

lynds - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
this product needs to advertise that it only works with the matching top coat. i tried using this with a base & top coat from another brand that i love, and it WOULD NOT DRY. i repainted them 4 times and they were still messy and bubbled up. i gave up and then it chipped within days. it’s also a thinner formula so it’s harder to apply precisely. the most frustrating nail polish experience ever, i will not be buying this again
1 reply from Essie Team team - 2 months ago
Hi there Lynds! We wish you could see the results you were hoping for with the Gel Couture longwear nail enamel. This longwear formula should not be thin, bubble, chip or be difficult to apply. Like all essie nail colors, it should look perfect by the second coat. However, this formula is applied to clean, dry nails, its not used over a base coat. And while you can use any top coat over the color, the Gel Couture Top Coat was formulated to extend the wear the best. Two coats of color and a top coat should not take more than 10 minutes to fully dry.
