This summer, Essie's Gel Couture line welcomes 18 new shades, inspired by couture fashion and available only to salons. Gel Couture promises up to 14 days of wear and an instant, gel-like shine. With its two-step system, there is no need for a base coat or UV lamp, providing a more streamlined process while maintaining the desired shine and chip-resistant strength. Beginning in August, these shades will be available to professionals for $5.75 per bottle.
