    Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

    First, Essie calls this one "Island Hopping" -- what a great name! Who wouldn't like to go island hopping in the Caribbean? So there's that. And it's a lovely purple-y mauve color; not too dark or too bright on my fair skin, but not fade-into-the-woodwork, either. I won't be giving this one away!

          Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

          I purchased two bottles of Essie nail polish back in June but I hadn't yet used them. So, I decided to try my bottle of Lacquered Up before I start senior year tomorrow and I am amazed by the quality! The polish is vibrant and comes on incredibly smooth. It dries faster than any other nail polish I've seen before. Plus, I don't even need a second coat, just one is enough. I can't wait to use the other color polish I bought and buy other Essie nail polishes.

          Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

          I have used this product for years but the last 2 times I purchased it I had trouble applying because it was very thick and didn't go on well. I believe it had been sitting on the shelf in the store too long.

                I find it a little thick. Didn't go on evenly.

                  Bought for my pedicure. It's not very pretty on toes. It's kind of flat. Does not pop.
