The Essie Couture Collection is here! I have stalked my local Boots shop once weekly for the last 4 weeks in anticipation of this collection, and I'm so excited its finally here. The collection is made up of 42 new shades (wow!) and the new formula with top coat is supposed to provide shiny nails a la gel nails in a bottle - no more UV. With the help of DH, I narrowed down my choice shade to one. Let's get to it.

Essie Couture Curator. This is a gorgeous light peachy pink with a creamy finish. It requires at least 2 to 3 coats to give a smooth opaque streak-free finish. It dries reasonably fast. I bet this shade flatters all skintones and makes a perfect girly summer shade.

Essie Top Coat. This top coat is meant to seal the deal and adds a little shine on to the nails. It's quite subtle, not as shiny as my favourite Seche Vite Top Coat.

The shape is quite odd, a little spiral shaped. The bottle is larger in size compared to the original Essie nail polishes, which makes storage a bit awkward, although both contain 13.5ml of product. I love the wide brush that comes with these products. It just makes application quick and easy.

Overall I enjoy the new collection and remain excited about all the new pretty colours. I've got my sights set on Essie Sew Me Nail Polish from the Essie Gel Couture Atelier Collection. One of these days it will join my nail varnish horde.
