Review: Essie Gel Couture

I am a sucker for nail polish especially fall colors with the plums, cranberries and greys! I can't wait to break out all my colors.  I have been checking out the Essie Gel line where they claim to last for 14 days.  I love having painted nails but hate painting them, so I figured sign me up!

REMEMBER WHEN SHOPPING: Use Ebates for cash back and coupons! Honey is a great back up when Ebates doesn't work on the site.

In order to have the gel work you have to buy separately a top coat (white bottle) AND specific nail polish which I was a little bummed that my 20 other Essie nail polishes wouldn't work, but I wanted some new colors! So I got a really pale pink almost white color (Pre-Show Jitters) and a mauve purple (Take me to Thread).  

The nail polish on my hands lasted over a week without chipping!  And its been over a week and a half and my toes still haven't chipped.  They usually last longer for me since I use my hands so much. And as claimed they did come off really easily.  They are a little bit pricier than regular ($11.50 compared to $9but I tried to use my Ulta points!) and much thicker of course since they act like a gel. But over all I really liked them and how long they lasted I cant wait to get more!

Whats your favorite nail polish color!?
