Essie Gel Couture Find Me A Man-nequin Swatches & Review

Essie Gel Couture Find Me My Man-Nequin Swatches

I have a love hate relationship with Essie but I think their Gel Couture range may have changed that.  I have fairly big nails.  Not that they are extra long or anything, but they are not teeny tiny and that Essie brush drives me crazy.  Just requires too many brush strokes which can make some polishes look worse.  They have some great colours, good formulas but a brush makes all the difference.  Which is why I have not tried the[Read more]
