This is pathetic. I have three essie nail polishes, one from a while ago and 2 new ones. Quite frankly they all suck. I thought maybe the older one was a dud so i tried their polishes again. They chip in slightly over a day (even with top coat and basecoat), they all need THREE coats, and it's impossible to apply them evenly. I've NEVER had this problem with OPI, (smooth application with one coat, full opacity 2 coats) and I assumed since they're both expensive essie would at least come close. If you wanna pay for the cute names and brand go ahead, but it sucks and sally hansen is definitely better and cheaper.

Not worth the price! Wasted money! Especially after finding one dollar polishes that were better quality.

I was hooked on Essie Aruba Blue nail polish and nothing else would satisfy, then the last two bottles I bought were a joke! The must have cheapened the ingredients in their formula because it chips off the very next day! I cannot believe I paid over $10.00 for this polish - You would think it came from the 99 Cents Store! They need to change back their formula to what it use to be 6 months ago because if they don't, I won't be buying it again!

Somehow Essie nail polishes do not work for me. One and half day without chipping is my maximum wear length. The brush is too thin for a flawless application and the polish itself dries too fast in the bottle. I don't get the hype about them. 😳

I've had this nail polish since June in the shade forever yummy. It's a beautiful classical red shade. If I apply 2 coats it lasts around a week, but the coats have to be really thin. It also dries really fast, and the price isn't unreasonable. I got this for $9 at target, and I use this all the time. It's my go to color. I've had it since June and I still have 3 quarters of it left. It's December now! I've went for more expensive brands like Chanel and butter London before but this Essie one is so much better and more affordable. Guys, don't spend $30 of more on a nail polish when you can get a better one for less than half the price. I am getting all my girly friends, sisters, and aunties some Essie nail polish for Christmas! Now if you'd excuse me, I've got some nail painting to do💅🏽💅🏽💅🏽👄👄😱😱😱😍😍😘

I love the colours of Essie but they get stringly and sticky so quick!!! I have so many kinds but I think I am done buying Essie. Not a good quality for the price I pay! I'm very disappointed:(

I tried Essie for the first time last week. My experience was not good. First try: After thoroughly cleaning my bare nails, I applied Essie All in One base coat. To that, I applied the nail polish. It was streaky so I applied one more coat. I let the polish dry for over an hour before applying the All in One top coat. A few hours later, I went to bed. I woke up in the morning with fabric imprints on my nails. Ugh. Second try: I used Seche Ridge Filling base coat. No streaks this time. I topped it off with the Essie All in One. This time, I let the polish dry for literally hours. After all that, the polish stayed on my nails for 7 days without any chipping.Conclusion: This product is perfect if you are on house arrest and cannot go anywhere for a long time because that's how long it takes to dry.I will not buy again.**UPDATE 11/11/2016**I substituted the Essie All in One Top Coat with the Seche Top Coat and it made all the difference! Everything dried in 30 minutes and I woke up with shiny nails!**UPDATE 12/12/16**I changed my prep routine and the Essie polish lasted 9 days without any chips or shrinkage. I think it could have gone longer but my nails grew out.1) I used a fine grit sanding block to smooth out my bare nail.2) Used OPI Bondex3) Applied 2 coats of Essie4) Applied 1 coat of Essie Gel Couture top coat5) Touched up once with 1 coat of OTD.

My HG nail polish. I own about 15 shades (including: sole mate, wicked, sexy divide, clambake, spaghetti strap, where's my chauffeur, mink muffs, aruba blue, lights, bottle service, go overboard, bachelorette bash, in stitches). That alone tells how much I love Essie's nail polishes. They're opaque, long lasting, apply evenly, don't chip fast (I always use Essie's top coat). There may be difference between shades in terms of opacity. The bottle is simple and pretty, the brush is not too wide, but also not too thin. My favorite.

I've tried for the last 3 hours to apply this smoothly to my toenail... It's still a mess. This formula is thin and runny and after three coats (letting each dry for aaaaages) it's still looking awful and I'm giving up now. What a waste on money!

They last for such a short time, even when I paint my nails with gel underneath first. I can maybe get through 1 day without chips, peeling, etc. Probably not worth the investment because they're kinda expensive and I can go through 1 bottle in a couple of months. LOVE essie colors! So delicate and soft. My absolute favorite nail colors but OPI goes on and stays on MUCH better!
