A few weeks ago I attended a beauty event hosted by London Drugs in Calgary that highlighted some of the retailer's latest and greatest launches... and while there were quite a few highlights from the evening, this drop from Essie has proved to be by far my favourite. If you've had a chance to try their new Gel Couture range of polishes you'll know what I mean, but if you haven't, this stuff is legit— by far the best drugstore gel option I've tried, and total bonus, it comes off with regular nail polish remover... what can I say, miracles really do happen.
I opted for "Bubbles Only," a deep, all-season red that goes with everything and has been reapplied religiously ever since I got it... OK, religiously might be a *bit* of a stretch considering I've technically only used it twice, but that's because this stuff seriously lasts on my nails. I would say I get at least one chip-free week out of each manicure, which is pretty good for a clumsy girl who's notorious for needing to repaint her nails every second day on account of all the chipping... just saying.
The top coat seals everything in place and gives a lovely sheen to the nails— as you might expect from such a product— but what should be noted here is the impressive range of colours available in the Gel Couture line... definitely worth checking out! xx
