I love this Essie Gel Couture polish. It stays for 10 days+ with minimal touchups with the base color and top coat. And I am extremely hard on my nails. Better than any polish I have tried and I have tried many, many different brands. Comes right off with regular nail polish. NO UV LAMP required for application. I don't like using the UV lamp gel polish because it is so hard on my nails and this one doesn't do that, it's like regular polish with the staying power of gel. Love it!
My only slight criticism is I will say this particular color is darker in person than on my screen on the website as were all the other colors I ordered of this brand and type. This is more of a robin's egg blue.
