NOTD: Essie Turn 'N' Pose (Gel Couture)

Essie Turn  n pose Gel Couture Review

Today’s NOTD is a little different from my usual posts since the featured polish is not grey or pastel pink. I was in the mood for darker polishes this winter, and Turn ’N’ Pose from Essie’s Gel Couture line has been one of my go-to shades this season.

I first mentioned this colour in my Essie Gel Couture Haul and have since reviewed the two other shades that I picked up at that time: Spool Me Over and Take Me To Thread. The formula of Turn ’N’ Pose is very similar to the others as it is easy to apply, streak-free, and only needs 60 seconds to dry between coats. This polish is also very pigmented and can look opaque with just one coat. I am wearing two in the photo above and no top coat to show just how shiny this shade is on its own. That said, the special Gel Couture top coat is necessary for achieving the long-lasting effect.

I can get 8-10 days of wear out of this polish (with top coat) before I notice some minor chipping. It’s easy to remove with a regular polish remover and doesn’t damage my nails like salon gel manicures do.

As for the colour, it’s a beautiful deep plum creme. I like how even from far away it appears purple and not black like some deep purples can look. It’s not too harsh against my pale skin and is very wearable for every day but can also look chic for a night out. I receive many compliments on this one each time I wear it.

Overall, I highly recommend the Gel Couture line from Essie for those in search of a long-wearing manicure that’s free of the high costs, UV light curing, or acetone removal of salon gel manicures. These polishes are quick and easy to apply and remove, and they last much longer than regular nail polish. As for Turn ’N’ Pose, it’s a great colour for those looking for a deeper shade that’s classy yet unique and has a high-gloss finish.

Which Gel Couture shade is your favourite?
