My favourite hair care boutique was clearing out their Essie polishes and I got this on sale. I love dark vampy shades during the fall/winter months and Damsel in a Dress is a beautiful deep purple/merlot shade.

Those are the only positive things I have to say about this polish as the formula is just okay. Application is decent but the durability isn't as great as other Essie …

I love this colour!! It's a vampy deep purple with a silver shimmer. As a previous reviewer commented I love the fact that this doesn't just look black. You can tell it's a colour. It also doesn't have any muddy brown tones which lots of purples do. Two coats provided opaque coverage. I can see my brush stokes a little on my right hand as my application isn't great …Read more

So I have a million of these 'almost black' colors at home, think OPI's Black Cherry Chutney, Royal Rajah Ruby, Lincoln Park After Dark etc. All of them turn out just black on my nails, no exception. And I don't want black fingernails. I was therefore hesitant about purchasing this as it does look awfully similar to Black Cherry Chutney in the bottle. However I have been …Read more

I love this Deep Eggplant purple color. I get lots of complements each time I wear it. It is on the expensive side. It cost about $8 per bottle

I finally broke down and bought this on ebay after looking at swatches of this online. I am soooo happy I did! It's the most beautiful plummy purpley color ever! It's one of those colors that actually look like what's in the bottle, not black when you put it on.
Love it and would repurchase!

I love dark, almost black purple polishes such as OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark, Siberian Nights, Essie's Carry On, Little Brown Dress, but they were all starting to look the same, dull, leaning towards black. Damsel in a dress is a beautiful deep purple with a nice sheen. It has better lasting power than some of the other dark Essie polishes. Finally something a little different!

I am a long time (6 years) user of Essie nail polish, because IMO Essie always carry the pretties colors. Recently, I think Essie has improved its quality interms of color concentration and durability. Essie nail polishes were very thin and required 3 coats before, but now most of them only need 2 coats to get the same color as the bottle. Damsel in a dress is one of them, you only need 2 coats …Read more

I purchased Damsel in a Dress as part of the six piece Essie Winter 2008 Collection, and it was one of the polishes I was most looking forward to trying, as I love dark, vampy shades. Damsel in a Dress is a very dark purple with definite reddish/plum undertones. It would certainly be classed as a vampy, though I don't feel it leans towards being black (although non-nail polish fanatics may …Read more
