As someone with narrow nails, the brush is too wide for my liking. That said, I love the colour! It's a purple-based black, but very dark, and one coat is enough to get solid opaque coverage. I've...

Classic essie formula. Thin and takes 2 coats. This is a basic black. No glitter. No shimmer. But still shiny. Love it

Maybe I got a bad bottle (based on other killer reviews), but this chips on me by day 2 (sometimes even the same day depending what I’m doing/if I do my nails in the AM). It also gets gloopy by the...

The best black. I love essie’s formula, it lasts forever on me. It is thin, so it is easy to control and doesn’t get gloopy. Builds to an opaque, shiny black.

I'm baffled by the stellar reviews and I have to wonder if I got a bad batch, despite purchasing directly from Ulta. I have to dip the brush back into the bottle with every brush stroke. The...

This is a black cream polish; basic, but a great staple to have in my collection and fantastic for nail art. It is not the most opaque polish, so two coats are required, sometimes three when...

Gorgeous black polish - completely opaque on one coat with no streaks and is this beautiful glossy black on the nails. Very elegant and chic!

Licorice is the most amazing black polish I have ever tried: opaque after one coat, fast drying, super shiny. If you have very long nails you will probably need a very geenrous coat or twocoats,...

This black polish is amazing! So opaque after one coat. It's also very shiny which is awesome. Great job Essie.

I've been trying black nail polishes for a good 5 years... this is the best so far. I love the d-shaped brush. Unlike most other bands, this is opaque in 1 - 2 coats and isn't streaky at all. I...
