Most Helpful Positive Review Casting the leading lady
When auditioning for dancer and commercial roles the casting directors usually ask for a nude or clear polish on the nails. I went in for the lead of a national bank commercial and the casting director ( a man) noticed my natural long nails with this muted shade of mauve instead of the usual nude, he loved it and said my hands would be featured and that they were "so lady like" I couldn't help but chuckle and I was over the moon when I booked the commercial and the client specifically asked me to keep that color in my nails! Lady Like is my go to good luck color, I've been booking with it ever sence then.
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?

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

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.
Great color. Love the brush.
Cassifrass from Oxford, MS
I love the color, just wish it was a tad lighter. The brush that Essie uses is the best. I bought an OPI bottle at the same time and the Essie brush is way smoother.
Dolly Demure from Nevada
Exactly the color I've been looking for. Glad it came back in stock for me to try, will likely become the go to sheer pink polish for me.
TGriff from Birmingham, Al
I was looking for this to match my daughters wedding color and it was a perfect match. When I applied it to my nails, I loved it even more and so did she!
Katie the artist from Walla walla, wa
Do not buy this horrible product. It reeks of chemicals. Buy something that doesn't kill you.
Chips and nicks very easy
Kenz from Texas
The formula is very thin so I had to apply THREE layers. After an hour of letting my nails dry, I did my makeup and hair. When I looked at my nails they were chipped and nicked everywhere.. trust me, I was not rough when doing either activity.
Not terrible, but some issues
Funky's Mama from CA
Ordered partly to round up for points, and partly because swatches made it look like it had a touch of pink. It does not. It's perhaps a hair warmer than a true white, but it's pretty darn white. It's advertised as "cloudy sheer", which is true, but unfortunately, it's pretty patchy on the 1st two coats, and by the time you've done the 3rd, it's no longer that sheer. Other than that, it's a good quality polish -- dried nicely and the brush is great. Not what I was looking for though, so will probably return.
I love this product!!
Rita from Davenport, Florida
Love that it has a bigger brush for application.
Nina me from Las Vegas
Great polish with only one or two coats needed. I use with a gel top coat. Perfect chrome look.

Shimmery, shiny, long wearing
Sugar Plum from WV
I purchased two of these and am very pleased. The brush is wide, smooth and applies the polish easily. The colors are shimmering and can be as sheer or opaque as you like, depending on the number of coats you apply. Best of all, the polish lasts a long time! I used a ridge filling base coat, two coats of polish and a quick drying top coat. It wore like a charm for 10 days. I will definitely purchase more of these!
