I am not a gelish girl. I do not like acrylics either. I am an old school, nailpolish-loving momma who cannot stand shelling out the dirhams for a manicure, only to have my nails ruined a day or two later when trying to pry the lid off my son's water bottle. For the longest time, I have wished for a longer lasting nail polish that would not ruin my nails!
Well , my wish came true. The frustration, disappointment and heavy sighs are no longer.
Have you noticed the twisted Essie bottles in beauty salons lately? Essie, a well-known nail polish brand, came out with a new polish formula called Gel Couture that lasts up to 14 days, has a gel like finish and, best part of all, no skin-damaging UV lamp needed! You can remove this polish with regular acetone.
I have tried this polish out twice. I can say that the Gel Couture line does last much longer than the regular Essie polishes. My nails survived a weekend of Christmas decorating with only one tiny chip. I approve!
Remember, the shorter your nails, the longer the polish will last.
Have you tried Essie Gel Couture nail polishes yet? If so, what did you think? Comment and let me know. Don't forget to follow me on Instagram @thebeautymajlis! Yalla!
