What is this nail varnish like? How do you remove it?

i like it, lasts a long time - it comes off with normal nail varnish

Thanks. I'll give it a go then if it comes off with normal remover. Just didn't fancy having to soak it off in some sort of chemical.

Yup I really like it too, I have a few of the colours, the vampish dark dark red is brilliant, lasts up to a week and comes off with normal nail varnish.

I've been wanting to try this for ages but the gel top coat is never ever in stock when I look in the shops!

Ah, Essie. How do I love you? Let me count the ways... the gel top coat is awesome. Lasts me a week at least and my hands work hard in that time!

I can't get my head around not using a base coat

I love it. Normally a sneeze will blow half my nail varnish off, Essie Gel Couture lasts at least a week, and even even I only take it off because of the speed of my nail growth, rather than chips. It does need a remover with acetone - I tried it with one without, and it didn't budge, but with the acetone one, just ropes off.
