Most Helpful Positive Review Don't judge it's cover
How I use the product is that I use a base coat and waited until it dried. The product drys pretty fast for people who's actually impatient. Then again, I coated the Essie polish and, the color, oh my gosh it's true to its color. I loved the color to the point that I double coated it to make it darker to get the fall look. It kind of took abut linger to dry but then again, it's a wonderful product. After when it's dried, just added the top coat when it's dried. I use the matte topcoat just to make the solid look. Gotta love the product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Hmmm...
When I first bought this colour, it was the perfect lilac shade for my skin tone and I loved it. After a while though, I noticed that the colour in the bottle turned light blue with no purple in it at all. I applied it and the colour was a light blue on my nails too. At first, I thought that it was only because I stored the nail polish in a spot that made the colour turn blue. But all my other Essie nail polishes that were stored there did not change in colour. So I bought another bottle, and the same thing happened. I bought a third bottle, and my results were the same. Overall, I was disappointed that it turned to light blue, because the original lilac shade looked really good on me and I loved it a lot. Maybe its just me?

I bought "For the Twill of It All" and the color is fantastic. It is just as it appears online. Goes on smooth and really lasts. I applied 2 coats and the Essie top coat in the white bottle on my natural nails and I've had no chips in 5 days. I love it so much I bought another color!

Beautiful color ! Lighten the mood
TC 222 from Tuxedo Park, NY
Lighten the mood is a gorgeous color . I don't think the description matches the color. It is a light dusty rose, similar to a ballet slipper. This polish goes on smooth and lasts for four or five days without noticeable chipping. This polish has improved over the years, and lasts a lot longer now. I have never had a nail chip, due to wearing Essie polish .
Nail polish chips and cracks easily.
Mm from Las vegas
I put on 3 coats of polish, over a 4 hour period of time. The next day I went to work and noticed that I already had several chips and cracks. After one day. And I didn't really do anything.
Should be called metallic rainbow
SeriphNox from Vermont
This is thee bombest nail polish I have ever laid eyes upon! And hear I was thinking it would just be this metallic gray. ha! um, ladies this has rainbow holographic reflects. I purchased the Rock Your World 1565 shade. Had I known it looked like it does, I probably would have bought 4-5, especially being on sale. It looks exactly like the holographic nail powder, but with way less mess and clean up. Of course it's Essie, so it lasts well on the nail 5-7 chip free days. Love the classic Essie rounded paint brush, works like butter applying. Please just buy it if you like/love rainbow/holographic. It's my favorite Essie shade as of now. Does need 2-3 coats to look like the bottle, but even one coat is beautiful, which I've never liked, said, or thought before this.
Riri from Florida
I love Essie normally but this lilacism color turned blue and pink after paint. It was so weird.

When you're royalty, you can use it everyday - Ballet Slippers by Essie
Always I buy Esse

I like very much I used in my toenails.
Irmf from Los Angeles, CA
This is a great white-out color. If you're looking for a pure white nail polish that isn't see through then I highly recommend this one. Plus Essie polishes are free of the top chemicals commonly used.
your a gem

Below Zero Nail Polish
JC from Denver
I love this nail polish. I really love how shimmery it is. It's a little darker than the picture but that's okay. & The only reason I'm giving it four stars is because it needs more than five coats..
Looks like jewelry on nails
mcge1580 from fishers, IN
I use of another base color. I love the pop if gives my nails. Formula allows you to make an even dispersion of the sparkles.
kitkat from MD
I got the shade berry naughty, it's literally the PERFECT red. The brush is easy to work with, and it looks glossy and pretty. The only thing is that it kind of starts chipping after only a couple days, maybe even the same day.
Color a deeper purple/red
LoriLove from LA
The color on the bottle is everything I was looking for. Essie never disappoints quality-wise though.
the milky white I was looking for
dani from Michigan
I was in search for a creamy, milky white polish and spent hours researching. I landed on this little guy and am so happy I did! I read reviews of people struggling to get an even, non streaky result, but I honestly did not have any trouble at all. It did take 3 quotes to reach the opacity I desired, but each coat went on smoothly and dried quicker than I expected. Only reason I didn't give it a 5/5 was because a week and half in, the polish started cracking all over.
Ash from San Diego, CA
I love the nail polish, the only thing is that one coat is not enough since it is a very sheer polish. Unless that's what you're looking for. I had to do 2-3 coats before my mail was fully covered
Always a fav
Ranswife from Pa
Always an essie customer. The polish has never failed me.. quickly dries and gives at least 4 days without chipping. Tons of compliments each time
Way better than OPI
So from Boston
Quickly dries and doesn't smudge! It looks nail salon done when I finished and people even asked about getting my nails done! Will be buying this over opi now.
"Rock Your World"
Faith from Somewhere, USA
LOVE this silver nail polish. Perfect shade of silver with fine, holographic glitter that's easily removable.
"You're A Gem"
Faith from Somewhere, USA
LOVE this nail polish. Fine glitter looks much better than chunky glitter and removes more easily. This color is great, almost looks like an antique gold color in certain light.
Looks more pink when on
Em from Michigan
Will need two coats. Looks more light pink when on. Light but very pretty.
New Formulation VERY Thick
Carrie from New Mexico
I have used Essie for many years because it has been a reliable, highly pigmented, smooth polish. However, my Essie purchases that I have purchased in the last year have been a nightmare to apply. Curiously, the Essie polish I bought 18 months ago STILL apply better than my recently purchased Essie polishes. They must have changed the formulation. It is so thick that I simply can't use them. I am very disappointed.
Worth every cent
Kimbo313 from Washington
There is a reason why this polish is so popular. I put off using it for years because I figured there was no way this polish was THAT good. Boy, was I wrong. The pigment is awesome and it applies so smoothly. I absolutely love it and I will definitely be buying more.
