essie Gel Couture Ballet Nudes 2017 Collection Swatches and Review

Hi essie lovers! I hope that you are all enjoying the holidays! 🙂 Today I have swatches of the new Gel Couture Ballet Nudes collection. As with most seasonal releases, this collection contains 6 shades – in this case they are all gorgeous neutral cremes! (my favourite)!

“Fashion loves the ballet. The beauty, the wonder and of course, the style. At last, the ballet’s romantic femininity and uncompromising detail graces audiences with gel couture ballet nudes by essie. Take center stage with ballerina finesse in these six magnificently neutral, longwear shades. From misty rose pink to soft shimmer gray, captivate audiences with effortlessly elegant colour and a high quality performance that provides up to 14 days of wear.

Tutus, tights and ballet looks have inspired designers, fashionistas and creatives of all types to envision some of their most iconic creations. essie gel couture debuts these stunning crème nudes that deliver lust-worthy colour and impeccable gel-like shine. You can leap, plié and pirouette for weeks with a long-lasting essie manicure, and all in just 2 easy steps.

Step into your satin slipper and meet me at the barre – let’s dance a pirouette or two before closing night starts. when the curtain is drawn and the spotlight is on, hold the position with perfect posture like a prima ballerina. whether you lace me up or lace me down, my ballet nudes look on pointe.” – essie Canada press release

‘satin slipper’ This was the only shade in the whole collection that needed 3 (thin) coats – it is a really pretty pale pink/beige shade with the slightest shimmer throughout.

‘lace me up’ I am totally obsessed with pale pink shades and this one is no exception. 2 coats and you’re left with this cream perfection.

‘at the barre’ I really love this one also, it’s a great neutral and the formula is amazing!

‘hold the position’ Again, a perfect formula and I love the colour (I don’t know why but it seems to look much better in person).

‘perfect posture’ My favourite out of the collection (although how can I pick just 1?) I am currently wearing this shade right now and will be repeatedly through the new year.

‘closing night’ I also love how they included a grey/purple shimmer in this collection. It’s gorgeous!

I don’t know about you guys but I will be wearing these on repeat through January.. it’s the perfect post holiday collection and a great palate cleanser! As you can see I don’t have any complaints – the formulas are amazing and shade selection on point! I hope that you all love this collection as much as I do!

The essie Gel Couture Ballet Nudes collection will be available at beauty salons and mass retailers starting January 2017. For more information be sure to check out essie Canada and @essiecanada.

  • Happy #MothersDay to all of the moms out there! 💐💕 It’s tradition that I give my mom a manicure every year and this year she chose @sallyhansenca Freesia Fancy from the new Complete Salon Manicure Petal Soft collection (we’re totally 💅🏼 twinning)! My favourite thing about doing this is that there is no need to go to a busy, loud salon for some pampering- plus it's SO easy with the precision tip brush. It’s a great way to share something that I love with her while spending valuable time together and relaxing at home 💆🏼‍♀️🌸 #completesalonmanicure #ad #petalsoft
  • Have you tried plant-based retinol? 💧💜
This duo is supposed to hydrate, smooth and soften overnight leaving skin as soft as a ☁️— just started and so far I really like it, although the fragrance is v strong.
