Nail Polish with Staying Power

Essie’s delightful new take on an at-home gel manicure

Essie Weingarten’s house of polish has been known for its dependably excellent products with whimsical names. Now, they’re trying something very new.

Gel Couture is the brand’s longer-lasting version of dozens of essie’s most popular shades, with a handful of additional hues. It comes packaged in an equally stunning bottle paired with a swirl stem brush to ensure perfect color application. The two-part system begins with the application of any of the 42 shades and finishes with its high-gloss top coat.

essie’s gel couture nail polish retails at $11.50 per bottle and will be available June 2016 at essie.com, fine salons and beauty destinations nationwide.
