Today I have two swatches from the Essie Gel Couture line. I was recently sent these polishes to review and I cannot believe I haven’t tried out the Gel Couture line sooner!
I’ve been a long-time fan of Essie nail polishes (they were some of the first I ever had) and these are becoming new favorites of mine.
I received the below 8 nail polishes as well as the Platinum Grade top coat.
Overall impressions: these shades are gorgeous, the formulas are smooth and easy to apply, and the two step system seems to really compliment each other. Not to mention, these have the new, flatter and wider Essie brush which makes application a dream!! I am SO excited about their new brush and I think it is a huge improvement.
Now, into the swatches!
Essie “Make the Cut” is a taupe-y nude cream with a subtle pearl finish. Such an elegant and classic shade! This will look great on so many people.
Colors like this are my ultimate fall go-to, and this one might top my list this year. It looks so gorgeous on and I really can’t get over how shiny the Platinum Grade top coat makes everything.
And even without a base coat, I didn’t experience much staining. With a shade like this, that is a definite win!
