Very, very late to jump on the gel manicure bandwagon is Essie and arriving in October to salon''s nationwide is a collection of 36 gel formulated Essie polishes which will last for up to 14 days after being set by an L.E.D light. Basically in a matter of weeks you can have a shellac like manicure but with an Essie product.
The formulation has been created to be kind to the health of the nails while looking pretty -the polish is said to be infused with keratin technology and vitamins B5 and E to condition and care for the nails. Essie also claim that their formula is 25% more powerful than other gel nail formulations (harder wearing I presume).
The kicker is that instead of launching 36 of their best loved and worn shades they have decide to go for somewhat reasonable matches such as a close dupe for Ballet Slippers which has been dubbed Dance Class and of course a similar shade to Mint Candy Apple which will be named Fashion Crowd.
I can imagine this news will please Essie fans to no end.
