Essie Gel Couture Gala Bolds 2017 Collection: Review and Swatches
In the upcoming July, Essie has a brand new Gel Couture color range inspired by the glitz and glam of red carpet galas. Aptly named the Gala Bold Collection, the line features six gorgeous bold and sparkly shades. To read my review of each and see some close-up swatches, click......

Fashion Face-Off:
A stunning silver pearl shimmer, Fashion Face-Off is quite sheer. However, the formulation builds nicely and with three coats, it provides a beautiful, streak-less coverage.

Star Studded:
Hands down my favorite shade out of the collection, Star Studded is a rich yellow gold shimmer. The formulation is semi-sheer but opaque in two coats. The finish is ultra shimmery and streak-free.

PR Stunt:
This is a pale lilac pink with a slight hint of pearlescent shimmers. The formulation is on the sheerer side so I used three coats for the swatches below.

Last Night's Look:
A lovely rosy pink cream, Last Night's Look is slightly sheer and patchy. I needed three coats for a completely opaque finish but the polish built pretty nicely.
