      Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

      I cannot paint my own nails for the life of me, so I took this nail-polish to a salon and had them apply it for me. It took about 5 coats to get it to an opaque state. It then chipped the next day and I had not been doing anything intense with my hands. I was let down by this polish because I love the color so much :(

      Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

      My manicurist told me that Essie is the best, long lasting nail polish. I've used it twice already and both times it chipped after 3 days. I even used a top coat. I love the color. I think it's a little thick and does not go on so smoothly.

      Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

      In general, I like the color, and think it works well year-round -- Green-blue, with emphasis on blue, slightly turquoise -- though, it is not BEST blue-green/turquoise out there. Also, I am not a fan of the texture. It is a little thick and applies unevenly. It also smudges, chips, and nicks easily. I am also not fan of the brush. It is round and stubby. It doesn't spread out evenly and is hard to get around corners/curves; this might contribute to the uneven application of polish. Surely, there are better and cheaper turquoise nail polishes out there.

        I've used it three/four times and within a day or
        two it peels off. I've never had this problem with any other colors. Very dissapointed in the product.

            Comments about Essie Nail Polish:

            For the price, it should have been a much better product. There are other brands at half the cost that offer excellent results. You need to do better Essie. This was a waste of my money and I did not appreciate it.
