Inspired by the artistic genius of the legendary jewelers of Paris, Essie’s Winter Gel Couture Collection with gorgeous shades invite you to stroll down the rue de la ruby and pick a holiday gift shimmering with high-carat splendor. Searching for a shade to fit every occasion? Look no further! From a classic fiery red for a chic statement to a lustrous bronze that takes any look to couture heights, the Essie Gel Couture holiday 2017 collection adds a gemmy touch of elegance any way you accessorize this festive time of year.
I received three of the shades from the collection – Gold Gilding, Rue de la Ruby and Amethyst Noir . Other shades available in the collection are Diamond in the cuff, It-pearl, Jade to measure, Taupe of the line.
Red is always a great idea for holidays, right?
Of course, I first had to try Rue de la Ruby. There is nothing like rich deep cream red. This is my favorite kind of red and this one had an incredible formula and was so easy to apply thanks to Gel couture brush. I hope Essie never discontinues this collection because there is no other polish formula that applies so easily and so precisely.
Amethyst Noir is described as a treasured rich and deep burgundy. It is very very dark and rich in the formula, two coats giving full coverage. Mine was a little thin and runny so I had trouble around cuticles. If you are a fan of darker shades check it out it is really nice especially on short nails.
Gold Gilding is not a color nor the finish I would typically like but this one blew me away! I was so surprised how much I loved this complex bronzey rose gold! (team rose gold everything!) It was opaque in two coats going on nicely and evenly and without visible streaks. I do not have a color similar to this one in my collection.
