March Marvel: Zip Me Up by essie gel couture

It’s FRI-YAY and Good Friday for those celebrating it. I’m trying to knock out as many green polishes as I can before the month ends tomorrow! Today’s beauty is called Zip Me Up by essie gel couture.

This is a super pale mint with turquoise shimmer. How delicate and chic! It’s the most perfect mint shade ever which is perfect for Spring.

The formula is a bit streaky so I did 3 coats for full opacity. This baby is from the original launch of the essie gel couture line in May 2016.

The turquoise shimmer is super subtle but so so gorgeous!


Essie Cosmetics is owned by L’Oréal. The brand has over 250 shades in the permanent collection, plus releases four seasonal color collections and two specialty collections every year. Essie is 3 FREE and sold in drug stores, salons, and beauty supply stores world wide.

essie’s gel couture line benefits include luxurious wear for up to 14 days, easy 2-step system, no lamp needed and easy removal. They retail for $11.50 USD each and are sold at big retailers like Target, ULTA, and CVS. I also love the wide paddle brush! In the US, the regular essies don’t have this wide brush.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Have you tried essie gel couture? What is your go-to green polish?
