After years of getting shellac manicures, I noticed my nails became very brittle and weak. I had to break up with Shellac and avoid harmful UV lights for good. Perfect timing to make room for these fabulous new shades. Essie has launched a Gel Couture collection with 42 luxurious colors to choose from. The polishes caught my attention when I first walked in my nail salon, Cindy’s Healing Hands. I was intrigued by the distinct and edgy twist the bottle design had. This innovative formula is a 14 day wear, two-step system. You apply the color and the top coat for a final glossy sealed look. I’ve always loved Essie’s polishes but my nails wouldn’t last 2 days without getting chipped. It was frustrating because I honestly was lazy to fix it after I just got them done. My other option was to remove it all and go natural for another week. But really, who doesn’t like colors  and shine on their nails? So thank you Essie for creating a revolutionary gel collection, it’s a life changer!
