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?

First time buying and using the color licorice. I am very happy with the coverage and formula. I apply 2 coats to get the depth I want.
Toned Down is beautiful!
Laur from PA
Such a perfect blue gray color! Goes on smoothly with a beautiful shine! It was the slightest bit deeper in color on the nails than what you see in the bottle...it's my new fave for year round!

Color pigment a stand out. Has a subtle purple undertone that enhances it brilliance. Gifted to someone.
I LOVE this color and the long lasting wear of this polish

Bikini so teeny
Kitcat20 from Chicago
The colors on the site aren't the some in person. The color is very dull.
Not Turquoise Barely Green
Kitcat20 from Chicago
When I ordered this shade, the picture showed a bright blue green color. It's the dustiest green I've ever seem. The color is depressing. Very disappointing.
Pure Snow White
IPD from Ca.
Don't buy it. Save your money! You'll need like 4 layers to cover your nails. Terrible coverage.
butler, please is THE best blue/purple

I love this nail polish brand. I'm not a super spender on nail polish, but the few go-to's I have are Essie polishes & this is one of them. My recently polished nails have held up a little over a whole week with minimal chips, and that's through work & chores like dishes! Holding up just fine!
One of my Favorites Nail polish 💅🏼

Ballet Slippers is One of my favorite nail colors!! Needed to own it! It's the Queen of England's Signature Safe Shade... :)
Turquoise and Caicos- Nothing turquoise about this color
Lauren from MT
I am so dissapointed that I didn't read the reviews before purchasing this color. I simply assumed it was the wrong photo since the description said it was aqua. I even checked Essie's website and the photo for this color must be last year's because it's a gorgeous, bright turquoise that would've been perfect for summer. I ended up purchasing and upon opening, discovered that it's exactly as the previous reviewers said; a sickly sage green. It's going back.
I would buy this product again
JMS from Milwaukee, WI
This is the first time I have used this brand of polish and I am very impressed with the quality.I have had this polish on for over a week and still really like it. I use a gel top coat and so far have not had any chips. The polish goes on smoothly with good coverage. I will definitely buy this brand again
Love Essie polish!
Jlemar75 from Springfield IL
One of the best polish brands. The light/baby blue color is perfect for summer.
Turquoise and Caicos color lie
Zoidberg from IL
I have to agree with the recent reviews. Something must have happened on the site because the color shown and the color received is vastly different. To me, it is hideous. It has the color turquoise in the name. The is no resemblance to turquoise. I was going to buy multiple. Glad I did not. I see most of the reviews are around the same time. The color on the site now is correct. For now on I'll compare it to another website to be extra sure. I can't imagine wearing this color so it will be given away. The only reason for the 3 stars is because I really enjoy Essie nail products. The color confusion is not the fault of the manufacturer. Still a good product.
Meg8 from Toledo Ohio
Beautiful color- expected it to chip quickly but was pleasantly surprised!
Jo from SC
It stays on
More of a green than blue
Kayla from Pennsylvania
I thought this color (turquoise and Caicos) would have more of a blue undertone, but it is more of a sea foam green. Still a pretty, unique color and very fitting for beach/summer time!
Just a tip.
Tashia from Arkansas
When picking out a color, click the picture to make it bigger. That is closer to the true color of the polish.
Tash from Arkansas
I didnt think I had to read reviews on a nail polish color, especially it being from Essie. But I should have. 🙄 Its like a grey green color... Not pretty.
Not close to what The picture shows.
Not the color pictures
Dull sage green from Illinois
The color in the photo is not even close to the color of the polish. The photo shows a bright almost Tiffany blue but the color it actually is, is a dull sage green. It's not a terrible color but not anything like what I was expecting from this purchase. I love essie nail polish but this one is a let down. Very misleading do not buy unless you're looking for a dull sage green polish.
Way too thick
Sam from Dallas tx
I was super happy to get this. But i bought it after stores opened after the Pandemic so i think it was old. It was very thick.
rjb from cali
i made the mistake of being excited to repurchase this since i havent used it in over 5 years. the color is not what it used to be. it was my favorite color but now it's just green. i should have read the reviews.
