A really nice basic red nail polish shade that is fully opaque in only one application. I still use two just to be sure. Its slightly thin, and dries quickly and evenly.

I bought Wife Goes On with several others polishes on ebay last summer. I kept looking at this and finally after a year I am wearing it. What a fool I am!!!!! Gorgeous color, on point with the neon trend, yet not overly bright. WGO, how do you forgive me for ignoring your gorgeousness? Typical Essie polish/quality. No application issues, self-leveling, slight VNL if you look at it under bright lights and my fave aspect, wears like iron! Love this polish.

I really love it color. It's super bright but not neon.

It goes on pretty smooth. 2 coats and it would be perfectly opaque!

My first essie polish, I usually use OPI which I much prefer after using this! It's much more red than I expected, looked much more like a deep magenta in the bottle, which was disappointing... Formula is not as good as opi either. Even with 3 coats I can still see through :(

Beautiful watermelon pink. Nice spring and summer shade. No shimmer but deep and true to color in bottle.

Wife Goes On is a stunning red/pink shade, it's actually got some coral in it as well........it's got a lot to it that's why it's such a great polish that looks amazing on tanned skin. Wife Goes On is not cool or warm..........it's got both cool and warm undertones which is great that way you get the best of both world's. I can see this shade work on all skin tones and all ages. If you like red nail polishes Wife Goes On is a fantastic choice.

I got this color at Trade Secret during a BOGO event. For reference, I'm NW15/NW20, maybe a tiny bit darker than 20 in the summer. I almost always prefer darker nail polish, with the exception of things like Chinchilly and You Don't Know Jacques. Pinks are generally not my thing. I do own OPI's Dutch Tulips, which I haven't used in ages and that's probably the closest thing that I have to Wife Goes On. All that to say I didn't think I would really like it on me, but I sort of liked it in the bottle. Almost every other reviewer has said that it's like an orangey-red, but I don't think it's even close to red. It's more of bright orange/coral with a tiny hint of hot pink, if that makes sense.

I give this a 3 because while I don't really like it on me, even for a pedicure, I really like the formula. I have about 8 other Essies and they all have that ridiculously narrow brush and most have a terrible gloppy streaky formula, even with rolling the bottle for a while. This one has the stupid brush but it goes on so smoothly, like most OPIs, and I actually enjoyed using it.

This will probably go the way of Island Hopping (gave it to my SIL and niece) instead of the way of Yes We Can, Pink! (garbage).

I LOVE this color! I've almost used up the bottle, which is a first for me. The color is like everyone says a pink/ red, it's bright and very wearable on my pale skin. I will definitely re-purchase :)

I wear this on short nails for a clean, put together look. <3

It's a nice red with undertones of pink. It's great if you are scared of going all the way red. It's very nice. It is not too flashy but still fun.
