Review: Essie Gel Couture Polish

As soon as Essie Gel Couture Polish hit the store shelves, I was eager to try it, but I was still in my salon-going routine.  I love that salon gel polish dries almost instantly, reducing opportunities for smudges or dings!  Who doesn’t love being able to buckle their seatbelt without worrying about ruining a nail??

Aside from that, there are some things I do not like about salon gel manicures:  They never seem to last the full two weeks, and I cannot easily remove the polish myself!  While my salon gel manicures did a pretty good job of withstanding my continuous household chores, mom-related duties, and hand-washing, I wanted the freedom to remove the polish myself when I got sick of it.  But since it is so tedious to remove, I always found myself back in the salon, perpetuating the cycle.  Well, I finally worked up the nerve to ditch the salon and dive back into DIY with Essie Gel Couture! read more
