Summation of these polishes: gorgeous pigmented colors, streaky and difficult to apply, chips easily and chips fast. The longest they've gone without chipping is one day; the shortest is 10 minutes after (though considering the other reviews about dry time, I probably didn't wait long enough).
I did buy 3 polishes for 50 cents each at a sale, so you really get what you pay for. Save your money and invest it in a better quality polish.
I love EVERYTHING about my bottle of e.l.f. Copper polish, except the dry time. Seriously SO LONG. I used a quick-dry top coat, and it was still the devil! The top coat had dried, but underneath it was still wet so i got ripples all on my thumb nail :( (at least it's just a thumb nail, right?!). Other than that, I LOVE it. I love the packaging: the cap used to drive me CRAZY until I realized you could just take the square part off! GENIUS! It's like butter london, and I didn't expect that kind of thing out of elf. Also, the formula was excessively smooth and easy to apply! FAVORITE EVER! I think I'll just deal with the dry time in the future cause the color is gorgeous and the application was flawless. Price is okay, you get what you pay for, right?
I love the colors in this nail polish! I like the color Nude the best. Great formula that dries fast and has a shiny finish to it. Pretty colors and an easy to apply brush.
this is far and away the worst nail polish i've ever bought in my life.
it takes FOREVER to dry. literally hours later it was still gummy to the touch. even worse, it started chipping the very next day. they have such a fantastic range of modern, cream-finish colors, it's really a shame the formula is so exceptionally bad!
The price in the UK did double sometime last year. So that was pretty disappointing, seeing that they didn't really improve the formula whatsoever. You still need to apply 3 - 4 coats to make the color opaque enough. And the finish was very rough, one definitely needs a good top coat. Not long lasting, chips rather quickly, dries rather slowly. Would rather buy MUA for cheaper nail polishes
I got some for Christmas and I got 17. When I tried it on it took a lot of layers to get it the color it looked like on the bottle. Also it takes for ever to dry!! Thank god I have a nail dryer!! Its okay, it's not that bad you just have to be very patient with the drying. When my aunt did it it was perfectly fine after a couple of layers of polish but it looked really good. The colors are pretty but the quality kind of sucks!!
I love these polishes! One of my all time favorites! I find the colors pigmented and incredible for the price. They don't chip easily on me and they last an amazing amount of time.
i don't get why it has such bad reviews. it has great colors and it's great pigment on them it doesn't streak easily and there probably not putting two coats on or can't put on nail polish i can't wait to get more.
I got two ELF sets this holiday season from Target. The little polish cube and the 15 piece set, I think. They're not very great to be honest. VERY streaky. Even with a top coat. I usually don't worry too much about streaks because my top coat usually evens it out, but not this time. I've managed to salvage my polish by putting glitter on top of it though. It takes FOREVER to dry, I don't think it would have dried at all without a fast drying top coat. Good shades, poor quality. Good for experimenting though or for base coats mostly, under glitter.
