Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

I really love this color but the application is very uneven. You need 3 coats to get rid of the patchy application. But, 3 coats changes the sheernes of the color, which is why i selected this color. I wanted a sheer white....

    Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

    I usually have my nails done professionally but wanted to have a bottle for touching up while on vacation. I purchased a bottle of Essie and had my professional apply it. They had a difficult time and wanted me tous theirs. They had to re-do 2 nails twice !!! I have gone to this professional for nearly 20 years. It was a BAD bottle of polish.

          Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

          I have come to realize that I like Essie's original formula the best for at-home manicures. In combination with Seche Vite, I get professional looking results; if I also add a top-coat the next day, the manicure lasts all week. The color selection is really great. This time, I bought Power Clutch because I was looking for an olive green color for the winter. Power Clutch is definitely an olive green, but also has grey and teal undertones in certain light. Love this product.

              I have had several colors. What I don't like is that even when it's dried completely, when, for example, pushed with a nail, marks are left. It's not that visible on lighter colors, but definitely on the darker ones. Also, it chips easily. I also used no chip top coat. It didn't help.
