    I didn't like the color of this polish. It was too dark, didn't look like the color in the bottle.

      I believe Essie polish is as good as OPI. Numerous colors to choose from and relatively chip resistant if you apply appropriately.

      Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

      I love very light pinks. Before buying a polish, I google tons and tons of swatches and I liked what I saw with this one. When I went to put it on, it looked more white than pink. There may be a time where I'll wear it again but not often. It's just not the color for me.

        I got wicked, and it is! Love this color. Very dark burgundy color. Almost black looking. I used 3 light coats to make it really dark. Then topped it with the new gel top coat so supper shiny.

          It took about 4-5 coats to achieve a clean, crisp white color. It didn't last very long either. But the other colors were very pretty, it just takes a few coats to get the color desired.

          I love this color. I also love how beautifully Essie nail polish is applied; smooth and quick drying. Although I do find myself needing a top coat because the polish does chip easily orherwise.

          Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

          Upon receiving this product in the mail, I was a little surprised at the color of the polish. I referenced the photo of the bottle on Ulta.com rather than the provided color swatch for "Hide & Go Chic". The photo showed a much more vibrant blue, however the swatch was more true to color- a jewel-tone blue. Regardless, I really like the color, consistency, and feel of application. The brush is small for my preference. The smell is average- somewhat strong and chemical, but I expect this of nail polish. I do not use base or top coat when I wear nail polish, so expectedly this polish began chipping after three to four days. I cannot fault the product for this, as I understand I could be doing more to extend the wear. Overall, I enjoy the product and would purchase it again.
