I applied two coats of color and finished with one coat of the gel top coat. It seemed to dry down very quickly because I think my nails were good to go from start to finish after about 30 minutes. I love the curved brush: 2-3 strokes per nail and done. The shine of the top coat is like glass; I daresay it might be nicer than the Seche Vite. My nails on the second day are still nice and glassy, no chips so far and they feel strong. I have no doubt they'll last me at least a week if not a little longer. Right now, I'm sold and want to pick up some of my favorite colors from this line. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Love this polish!
I painted my daughter's nails with this Essie gel couture polish. The color is Fairy Tailor and it's just gorgeous! Not a super exciting color for an almost 8 year old, but mama loved it enough that I did mine own afterward! I loved the cute design of the bottle, and the flat rounded tip brush inside. It also has a swirly design with the stem of the brush that is meant to prevent excess polish from dripping down while you're painting. It was super easy to coat our nails, and dries quickly so that you don't have to stop and wait between coats. The gel top coat went on super smooth. I'm hoping it is as long lasting as it claims! I received this product free to test. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Finally a perfect sheer
Not a girly girl. Job requires box opening and removing cellophane wrapping from lots of things. Disastrous for nail color. After four days still looking good. Right index finger is the only one showing any wear, even that is minimal. With one more coat of the top coat I should be able to get a week out of this color. About the color, it's a perfect glossy bare pink. I can't wait to try the fairy tailor color for a perfect beige glossy bare color.
This went on well with two coats and the top coat sealed it perfectly. I usually don't do my nails because it takes too much time and I am a busy mama, but this was quick and easy. It gives off a gel appearance with not nearly as much work as gel polish. The shade is a pretty pink that compliments my skin tone and so far it has stood the test of caring for a seven month old who loves to play with and chew his mama's hands.

GORGEOUS ONCE DRY
I received this Sheer Fantasy Gel Couture and the Clear top coat for FREE from Influenster for my honest review. Here goes. I've used several ESSIE shades over the years, and I've LOVED them all. But there is a different shape to these bottles which makes them fit PERFECTLY into your hand while holding the bottles and that's something new and unique that I instantly noticed and loved!!! Next is the thickness to the polishes themselves. They deliver such an expensive look to your nails, and that is worth it to me. I didn't notice the drying time to take too long. I used both colors 4 days ago, and i followed the directions on how many coats and I'm IMPRESSED!!! NO CHIPS, NO PEELING, AWESOME COLOR STILL TODAY!! I think if you're looking for an American manicure , DEFINITELY BUY SHEER FANTASY 10, and top it off with a beautiful shine and long lasting effects with a beautiful gel look. Top Coat 00.
