[The essie gel couture ballet nudes shades lineup]
The launch of any new essie collection is always exciting, but I’m particularly smitten with the latest one, essie gel couture ballet nudes. The formula and neutral shades will have your nails “on pointe,” as the color easily glides on and compliments not only that classic ballet uniform of pale pink tights and slippers coupled with a black leotard, but all current on-trend hues in fashion. The six shades of satin slipper, lace me up, hold the position, at the barre, perfect posture, and closing night are presented in the gel couture long-wear polish, which boasts up to 14 days of wear (apply two coats and seal with the gel couture top coat).
As thrilled as I am about the new ballet nudes shades, the excitement is definitely matched in the new innovative nail care collection that essie also just presented, aptly title treat love & color. There’s no denying that we use our hands a lot, and subjecting them to hard work, the elements, and polishing and stripping off said polish can leave them needing some support. With collagen and camellia leaf extracts, essie’s treat love color strengthens, brightens, and hydrates with a hint of sheer color along the way, suggesting that you can experience 60% less peeling and 35% less breakage with just one week of use. I’ll take that! No base coat or top coat is needed, and choose from among treat me bright (a brightening sheer powder white), laven-dearly (a neutralizing sheer lavender), or sheers to you (a nurturing sheer pink blush).
All new launches are available now at essie.com, fine salons, and beauty destinations nationwide. The gel couture ballet nudes retail for $11.50 each, while the treat love & color are $10 each.
