I actually bought this a long time ago, like 4 years. I still have it and recently dug it out of my collection because army/olive green is on trend I wanted to try this out again. I liked it but I didn't like it at the same time when I first got it because I was unsure of the color so I only wore it a few times. I've worn it maybe 3 or 4 times since digging it out in the fall. I like the color, it's an army/olive/sage green mix with a hint of grey. I see a little shimmer in the bottle but not much once it's on my nails. But, I don't really like the formula. It's so thin. I'm not sure if my issue is because it's old or not because I haven't liked Essie in the past because of how thin their formula tends to be. Also, I've noticed that my nails chip a lot these days because I use my hands a lot. But, I painted my nails this color Monday night and by Tuesday at 10:00 or 11:00 am, not 24 hours and I barely used my hands that morning as I was slow at work, and it was already chipping off the tip of two of my nails so I just peeled it all off. I rarely buy essie polish because I hate their thin formulas, I like it to be a little thicker. I like the color but I guess this is something I can only wear for a day or two, which I don't mind TOO much because most times my nails are black and if they are ever anything else I usually only have it on for a few days anyways, but if it chips like crazy that annoys me because then I get no wear time out of it. Will try it again and use the bottle up, or try to, but won't buy again. I'm sure I can find a similar color somewhere in a better formula.
