This is a great nail polish as well, it is made of high quality ingredients and lasts forever. They even harden my nails. I have thin nails so this is like a nail protector as well. I like the colours that are like pastels, they are all very pretty.

Essie Nail Polish is often on sale, so I thought I would try a three pack of coral hues - peach dacquiri, come here, off the wall. I skipped the base coat and applied to clean nails. I applied two coats and one top coat of clear quick dry. The polish lasted, on average between the three, 5 days before showing the first chip. I was impressed it lasted up to 10 days with just little touch ups and another slather of top coat. For the price this is great value and durability. I love the colours too, they are endless.

I'm currently using their red polish, 924 Head Mistress. It's not a firetruck red as I had hoped, but the mature shade it results in is pleasant. The polish is a bit watery, which isn't exactly a problem, but when combined with the narrow brush it makes it a bit harder to paint your nails efficiently. It doesn't need two coats, which is great, but it still chips easily. In fact, I have yet to find a nail polish that doesn't chip easily - and I don't use my hands for anything but typing so you'd think I wouldn't have a problem. I'm satisfied with Essie products in general, and the price is alright, but there could be more effort put into easy application (bigger brush, please).

I have been following Essie on Facebook for quite some time and I really enjoy their vast array of pastel coloured polishes. This summer I tried the mini bottles of the green and peach colours and I found them excellent. They tend to stay on for a while before having to re apply. I need to get some for the holidays.

I have only used a handful of nail polishes, and one of them is Essie. I actually really like the bottle and how the name Essie is embossed on it. The colors come in a matte too which I like. Also it totally feels, applies, and looks like alon quality. Essie seems to always have "up to the minute shades", and I get a flawless coverage and durability. It doesn't chip at all !!

All Essie Polishes are also DBP, Toluene, Formaldahyde free!!!!

I do recommend these polishes.

This is my go to polish brand. The shine and lasting wear is really good. Sometimes it will last me just as long as a gel manicure! I love that the brush is slightly smaller - I can be more precise with application. They have a fantastic range of colors with super cute names.

Really great quality. I have 2 Essie polishes now, my most recent is Meet Me At Sunset: it's a lovely tomato orange shade. What I love about it is that I feel like it has built-in top coat in it... I apply this colour and when it dries it's already super shiny so no need to add a top coat. It's also great b/c I can notice that it dries faster than other polishes, so I can put 2 coats on super quick. This shade worked best for me when I had a neutral base coat underneath to really bring out the colour. It wasn't good for going over top of an existing/chipped off base colour; the edges of the underparts without a base showed through.

There aren't enough stars for me to put on this product I recently bought this a few weeks ago to try for water marbling and cannot get enough of it the only downside is the brush is very small so to get a nice un streaky finish it"s kind of difficult but the pigment is great it dries fast and there"s loads of colors! Overall a good nail polish in gorgeous colours but for the price am not convinced they are worth it.
