Essie Ballet Couture Gel Collection

This month, Essie launched an extension of its Gel Couture range with six new delicate and delightful shades as part of their Ballet Couture collection. If you’ve tried their Gel Couture line (it’s the one in the cool twist bottle), you know it’s probably one of the most long-lasting at home polishes on the market and can last up to two weeks. It’s applied like regular polish (it’s not like the in-salon gel manicures that involves a curing machine) and the other perk is it requires no base coat. Simply apply 2 coats, let it dry, then seal with the special Gel Couture Top Coat and you’re good to go. Shade swatches of the new range below!

Inspired by the ballet in both the shade colors and names picked, the new Gel Couture Ballet Nudes Shades includes: Perfect Posture (periwinkle powder blue), Lace Me Up (misty pink rose), Closing Night (soft shimmer grey-lavender), Satin Slipper (silky champagne ivory), Hold the Position (coral peach pink) and At the Barre (soft cinnamon nude).
