Rated 4.51 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review In spite of the chips, I love it.
When I use this polish it barely lasts two days, but I just love the coppery shade so much that it does not matter. The chipping issue is popular with chrome like metallics like this one...just love it so much!
Most Helpful Critical Review good as gold
Lovely shade that shifts between silver and gold, depending on the light. Just one problem: it starting chipping the first day. It literally peeled off one nail, in spite of the fact that I'd used both base and top coats. Reapplied it.... and the same thing happened again. Suggestions to make it more durable?
Reviewed by 9653 customers Good formula, misleading shade
Marie from Grand Rapids, MI
I now have two shades from this line because I do enjoy the formula. However, the shade "Peach Side Babe" is a much more neon orange than you see in the pictures, fair warning! I was expecting a slightly more neutral shade, so I'm a little disappointed. Now I know it's probably best to look in store to get the correct shade.

I love the birthday girl polish I got. It's a light sparkling color but if you put 2-3 coats on you see the pink more. It dries quick too.
Elisa from PHX
Great color- not too white- not too pink- just right!
Color and formula changed
Pen from The South
Fiji was my go to for YEARS. Regardless of the season. It was that chalky pink color I always loved. Revlon had a similar color back in the 80's called "Pink on White", and it was my fave. Never found a dupe until years later-Fiji. I was rejoicing! Then-out of nowhere-Essie changed the color. It had become just one shade this side of hot/fluorescent pink. And it stayed that way for many years. I saw many complaints about this, but there was no change. Found an exact duplicate for Fiji with Opi, so I switched to Opi, and honestly, I never went back to Essie. Essie did eventually go back to the original color formula for Fiji, but by then, not only had I decided to stay with the Opi color, Essie's formula had changed all around. I did buy other Essie colors, but they were chipping fast and cracking fast. Adding additional coats only made it peel off quickly. I am slowly replacing them with similar Opi colors. Sorry, Essie.
Two stars for the large selection of colors and convenient bottle shape.
The perfect color!
Katie from Huntington Beach, CA
This is by far the best color I've found. It combines pink and peach, it coordinates very well with my summer clothes.
Perfect Fall Color
Tracey from Kentucky
You can never o wrong with Essie..color stays on more than other brands.
Great coverage and color
Lisa from 61007
Most "special effects" polishes I've used required many coats of polish. This completely covered in two. No streaks, just beautiful shine. Color changing with the light, angle of hand. A glowing effect. All pros, no cons. Yes, would buy again.
Buy this every summer
Karen from Chicago
One of my favorite summer colors.
Doesn't dry for HOURS
Katie from Ny
Baller slippers is a beautiful color but the length of time this takes to dry is insane. I won't ever buy it again. I waited ten minutes in between costs and then allowed my top coat to dry for ab HOUR and it was still gooey and immediately messed up. Nobody has hours to wait for nails to dry. I know it isn't my top coat either because I use that all the time with other polish with zero issues. The Essie gel couture polishes are nice. The brushes are nice for application. I can't get past how ridiculously wet my nails still are and now it's been TWO hours.
Awesome color for summer
Grammy from Darien, IL
I love this color for summer. No worry about clashing color with what you're wearing. So easy to apply and especially like the curved brush; so much easier to do a mani/pedi.
I would buy this again and again

I love essie nail polish. Stay on my nails for a long time!
Julzie from New Mexico
I love essie nail polishes. Blush and nudes are my favorite shades. I bought the shade "like a rebel" and it's a pretty copper rose gold shimmer. Use 2 coats it to paint my nails and toes lasts a while and save $ from going to the salon. 💅✨️
I would buy again

Love the way it looks
Love this Color

This nail polish is a great addition and perfect for summer.
3 stars color, but 5 for Essie
Minniema from Royal oak
First Essie color that I do not like. It's chalky and covers poorly, and yet it's really thick. This one is a dud but I'll use it for toes. I guess. I'd return it if I could. This color was 108 Free To Roam.
Daniele from Denton, TX
Bought this in penny talk to match some rose gold sandals and it was perfect. Loved the smooth finish and it was durable!
no I would not buy is again
Andi from Il
Product is too sheer
LOVE THIS POLISH!
MsPalmettobug from GVL, SC
I have purchased this polish in different shades many times… it has a wide brush and you don't have to use as many strokes when applying. This color "sugar daddy" is a sheer, natural pink and I wear it daily. It goes with everything. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that I wish it was just a slight bit less sheer in color.
Not worth it
Pink Unicorn from Texas
Beautiful color but not worth it. It chips super fast.
Gorgeous color BUT...
Pink Unicorn from Texas
The color is BEAUTIFUL! That said, it chips within a couple days, literally. On top of that, it's THICK, so it's impossible to do think coats. That thickness makes it bubble and you never get a smooth coat past the first one, despite letting each coat dry thoroughly. I will just stick with Sally Hansen.
I Would Buy This Again
MsB from Virginia
I have the ballet slippers pink and it took several coats to fully cover my nails because it's so light. However, it looks great with my tan.
Doesn't match description
Rae from Philly
The color (imported bubbly) is described as a golden beige and the picture looks like a champagne color, but it's literally a glossy white color. The polish itself is good quality, but I'm disappointed in the color.
490 Not Red-y For Bed
Lovinshoppin from San Diego
I love this formula. It goes on smoothly without streaks and has excellent coverage on the first coat. This shade of red is gorgeous for summer - a neutral medium tone shade - not too bright, not too deep. Actually, perfect year round!
Pretty at 60 from Ann Arbor
Decided to paint my fingernails and toes this time and so far so good. Used the Essie here to Stay base and Gel Setter coat then Quick-e drying drops. Pretty color that's a little different from my usual coral and red. Very nice. Love Essie polish. Saved a bundle on a nail salon and looks just as nice.
