No person places child within the nook, and no person places bullsh*t high coats on my nails.
I’ve had the time of my life!
Like the women who unabashedly carry scorching sauce of their purse, I’ve reached that time in life the place I carry Essie Gel Couture Prime Coat with me all over the place (no, significantly, I maintain it in my touch-up make-up bag), together with the nail salon.
On the uncommon event that I get my nails 💅 performed, it’s the ONLY high coat that I do know can face up to the entire obstacles the universe throws in my path — the endless deluge of dishes, the ferocious onslaught of phrases inside my head ready to be unleashed upon this keyboard beneath my fingertips, and, ya know, toddlers. They all the time have these Lego blocks that have to be pried aside and My Little Ponies that want their manes braided LIKE YESTERDAY.
Gel Couture is a transparent, shiny topcoat initially designed for use with the Essie Couture Gel polishes, however I’ve lately discovered that it’s a wonderful topper for ALL polishes, not simply the Essie Gels.
For starters, it’s so shiny that it all the time seems to be moist (even when dry), which I like.
The feel’s additionally thick for a high coat, and I believe that’s why it features like the final word armor towards nicks and chips.
However don’t get it twisted. It’s removed from goopy or tough to color with.
I’m not a fan of high coats that you simply’re continuously tempted to peel off everytime you get out of the bathe. Gel Couture, fortunately, relieves me of that temptation!
One coat atop no matter I’m carrying (proper now it’s the Smith & Cult base coat and two layers of Essie Angora Cardi, a.ok.a. THE BEST FALL COLOR), and 5 minutes later I’ve a mani that appears simply as recent after 5 days because it did on day one.
Tremendous nice, and it’s comparatively reasonably priced at $11.50 a bottle! Yow will discover it at Ulta and wonder provide shops… I’ve additionally seen it at Goal.
