How to Apply Essie Gel Couture

by Staff Writer | June 27, 2019

1. For best results, perform waterless nail prep to extend polish wear and save time. Start with a clean, dry base by prepping each nail and removing any residue with acetone.

2. Apply a thin layer of color with one long, clean stroke. Wait one minute before applying the second coat. Shade used: Pleat & Thank You.

3. Follow with a second thin layer of color. Wait one minute before applying the top coat.

4. For a glossy, gel-like shine, apply one coat of Platinum top coat to each nail and seal the free edge.
