        Was hoping for a more grayish tone. This dries pale lavender. Appears more grayish in the bottle.

            I love any Essie polish but Wicked is my favourite shade. Perfect dark wine colour. It does chip within a few days if I don't put a top coat on - but I also work with my hands a lot. I'll usually re-apply once a week.

              Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

              The color I purchased did not look like the same color on my nails as it did in the bottle. The applicator brush is too small and it chipped with a base and top coat in 4 days. I'm so glad Essie has committed to making their nail polish safer and free of harmful chemicals but the price point is high for the quality.
