I like the color, a dark and deep black red. A great color when you're in the mood for something dark and dangerous. However, I had a hard time with the application. On some nails I had no issue, but then on other nails it would clump and become a big frustrating mess. For this reason, I'm not sure I'd repurchase. Needs 2 coats for sure.

I do love the look of Wicked - a dark vampy red that should look good on just about every skin tone. My only complaint is the application. I always apply two coats of most polishes and Wicked is no different. One coat is just a streaky mess and another coat evens out the color. However, I do three coats for complete coverage.

I'm becoming hooked on Essie nail polishes and I now understand why this brand gets so much love. The formula applies so beautifully and evenly without streaking and the wear is great! The colour selection can't be beat and Essie is usually with the trends in nail colour.
I got Wicked because I'm in a 'vamp' phase as of late and I wanted a rich dark blood red colour (almost black) reminiscent of Chanel's Rouge Noir.
Wicked didn't disappoint. It looks black from a distance but up close it's that deep vampy colour that's perfect for this time of the year.

This polish is fantastic! I had a pedicure yesterday and everyone - even the nail technicians - were remarking about the richness of this color. Essie Wicked is a dark blood-red that can look black in some lighting but has just enough color to keep it from being completely goth. I have slapped one coat of this on in the case of a yoga class emergency and it looks fantastic! One coat of this polish is a deep cranberry color; two coats turns it darker but it still maintains a hint of red. I have repurchased about four times already and I will always have a bottle of Essie Wicked in my very selective polish collection.

My usual manicurist only carries a house brand, which isn't a particularly good product. But I just got my nails done at a different place that carries Essie and I went straight for Wicked. This shade - very VERY dark red, bordering on black/brown - is my go-to shade but this Essie version is extra gorgeous and seems to be longer lasting, too. Every time I try to branch out into different, lighter shades I always end up coming back to this type of hue and Wicked is the best of this goth-style genre. A winner!

I love Wicked! Its a beautiful deep vampy red color. It looks great against my skin color (very pale with yellow undertones). A lot of colors simply do not look good on me. I tend to go for darker shades and this one (in my opinion), is a must have. I was able to get a few days of this being on my nails (with no top coat) before seeing any noticeable chipping. Despite other reviews, I have had no application issues (I do tend to do multiple coats with every nailpolish I own though, so this may be why). I will definitely repurchase if I ever run out!

My fav vampy red. Its an almost black red that's very flattering on my skin. I love Essie polish. Lasts a long time with no chips and dries perfect. Even without a top coat this lasts a long time. I LOVE this color.

Doesn't stay on longer than a day.

I am so loving this color, it does look like a very dark red in the bottle, but on the nails it looks almost like a black cherry. Definitely looks darker on the nails than in the bottle....I'm pretty much Zoya girl and love the color Raven the most beautiful black ever....but I'm really loving this. Revised:
I have to say this stuff chips so bad...within a few days. I'm staying with my zoya love the brand.

I am typing this as my nails dry! I normally prefer OPI or China Glaze to most Essie polishes. I have passed by this colour numerous times, thinking it was the standard "Vampy" colour. Then I lost my "Lincoln Park after Dark" and decided to pick this up today. It is GORGEOUS! Elegant, edgy, sexy and so GLOSSY! I feel like I just got a Shellac Manicure. It looks so professional. I think 2 coats would work on most, but I am not the best at application, so it took 3 coats for me. I was considering leaving it at 2 coats. I dont blame the formula, I blame the user. Those of you that are pros, would get glamourous results with 2 coats. Don't pass it by ladies, it's a classic.
