    Cracked and chipped quickly

    I loved the colours and tried a few. I found it cracked and chipped very quickly. Its a good price but you get what you paid for. It went clumpy in the bottle fast and didnt apply smoothly.

    A hot mess!

    I never was into painting my nails but I bought this brand because it was so popular. The colours are great! But as for the quality, I am always making a mess! Its runny. It takes forever to dry! I always end up with messing it up within an hour of painting them!

    Meh....

    very runny, some of the colors you have to put on multiple layers to get the true color. not worth the price tag. There are so many better brands of nail polish for a cheaper price out there. I would not recommend this nail polish.

    Spend Your $ Elsewhere

    I find Essie polishes to be a very runny, almost transparent (although coloured) polish. It takes between 3-4 sometimes 5 coats of polish to make an opaque layer that actually showcases the colour. As we all know at that many coats, your nails will be a mess. Like I said before, save your $ and spend it elsewhere!

    Don't waste your money

    This nail polish is great looking in the bottle, the colour selection is great. Unfortunately that's where it ends. I find the formula too runny and it takes about 5 coats to get the colour of the bottle.

    Nope

    Some people told me it was super but when I tried it , first I thought it would take forever to dry , it is too liquid and doesn’t last long.nah I won’t buy it again it is not worth the price.

    Not worth the $$

    Okay, Essie has beautiful colours every season but that's all I can say that I like about it.
    The formula is deceiving because it applies so beautifully the first couple of times but after a while it seems to get thick and more difficult to use. It doesn't seem to last very long and it takes a while to dry.
    I probably won't be buying these anymore after having been disappointed with the many I have used.

    Runny, thin and dissapointing.

    Essie nail polishes look beautiful... in the bottle. In reality, I find them difficult to use.

    The polishes are usually quite thin and runny. You need to put on multiple coats to get opaque coverage. It takes a while to dry, and since there are many coats, you're at risk of the polish still slipping around because even if the top coat is dry, the bottom coats usually aren't.

    Je ne recommande pas ce vernis. Il est très dispendieux, sèche très lentement et s'écaille rapidement. Le seul point positif c'est les différentes teintes, mais ça ne vaut pas la peine puisqu'il ne tient pas.

    Essie nail polishes have a good colour selection but they are poor quality. They come on so thin, making multiple coats needed. sometimes more than two. It also separates in the bottle very easily
