Essie Gel Couture Sheer fantasy, Make the cut , Fairy tailor , Pre-show jitters



When it comes to soft, neutral, nude shades – no one does them like Essie. Just think about some of their cult classics like Ballet slippers, Fiji, Mademoiselle, Hi Maintenance etc… I was so glad they created shades from the same family in the Gel couture formula too.  With wide brush it is super easy to apply them and colors were buildable. What I loved is that they looked beautiful with one coat with just a hint of color as well with 2 or 3 coats that gave medium coverage.


Sheer fantasy – close your eyes. lose yourself in the wonder of this graceful sheer pink and discover your heart’s desire.

It is like a perfect “no mani” manicure, with just a whisper of color to give you “my nails but better look”. Quick and easy way to make your nails look polished.



Make the cut – in. out. yes. no. there’s no mincing words in this pearlized nude greige – whatever you say goes.

Very unique and super wearable nude greige with gorgeous subtle shimmer.



Fairy tailor – when you wish upon a star, this sheer nude pink swoops in to make all your dreams come true. really.

Similar idea and color to Sheer fantasy but a bit more opaque. I am wearing two coats in the pic below.



Pre-show jittersdon’t freak out – chill out. alabaster white smoothes everything over with a touch of cool.

Gorgeous cool toned white with opaque formula and goes on so evenly! I am not usually into opaque whites but this one really impressed me.
