    Ok product

    I love the colours that are offered but unfortunately the consistency is so thin you need 3 or 4 coats to achieve any good solid colour. For the cost of this product I was disappointed.

    Better nail polishes elsewhere

    These nail polishes have tons of colours to choose from, but it is easily chipped. Also, there are better nail polishes out there that are better for your nails.

    had very high hopes

    Essie polishes are talked about all of the time as being some of the best...but honestly, I think they're completely over-rated. Especially for the price! One good thing i will say is the shade selection is GORGEOUS, and Essie is always coming out with great new colors. My problem is if I paint my nails in the morning with an Essie polish, I'm almost sure to have a chip or two by dinner time.

    Not the best

    I dont tend to reach for this nail polish. I find the product to be quite liquidly and runny. This defintely not my favourite. But i have to admit, they have a great colour range to fit everyones needs

    Meh

    Essie nail polish kind of leaves me feeling flat. I find their colors to be very boring, they don't stand out to me. They are for if you work in a very professional office setting and need to keep things..dull. they have alot of pastelly colors.

    Je n'ai pas été satisfaite...

    J'entendais souvent parler de cette marque de vernis mais pour le prix de cet article, je m'attendais à mieux. Le vernis est parti après 2 jours, ce qui m'a plutôt décue

    Quality Varies from Colour to Colour

    These can be on the pricy side when it comes to drugstore nail polishes, and quite frankly there are cheaper polishes that work as good. Essie though has the best colour selection and you can usually count on getting a decent product. I have about 20 Essie polishes and a few of them are just horrible. They are never opaque even after 5 coats and some chip really bad. But the ones with good formulas are some of my favourite polishes ever.

    I hope you have a good base and top coat

    Essie is average, and I find it overhyped. It's really worse than the Covergirl brand, which I do love. Essie just doesn't last. It takes forever to truly dry. It feels dry to the touch but when engaging in light activity, or if you rub against something, it smudges up completely. It takes hours for this to stop. After this phase, chipping begins. I've yet to find a base or top coat that prevents either of these issues.
    However, the shade range is fantastic and the price isn't too bad, although it is a bit much for its quality.

    Chips so easily

    I really like the colours Essie nail polishes come in. They are trendy and unique. For the price of this nail polish i found it chips really quickly and doesn't last as long as other nail polishes in the same price category.

    Love the colours, but doesn't stay for a long time

    I used to buy Essie in France and loved the big brush, and the fact that the nail polish actually stayed for a long time. Now that I moved to Canada, I find the brush much smaller (which make it harder to put on) and the colour doesn't stay unless you put a top coat on it. I do love their range of colours though, but you can find better nail polishes for a cheaper price!
