I love the dry time of this polish. I am so impatient when it comes to my nails drying- sometimes they never dry but not with this polish! It’s thick and opaque, and drys basically instantly. I didn’t love the color but I own this polish in many other colors that I love!

I purchased the color “mall crawler” because I loved how it looked based off the bottle, but when applied, it looked like nothing despite two coats. I appreciate how quickly the formula dries, but do not purchase this color in particular.

Hi there! Thank you for sharing your experience with the expressie quick dry color “mall crawler”. We wish you could see the results you were hoping for. We’re delighted the color dried so quickly for you, however, this is a muted sheer pink (see the cap).

Mommytogs - 22 days ago, Verified purchaser
I wish I could give this zero stars. Maybe I had a bad bottle. I put it on and within an hour it was chipping even with a bottom and top coat. Then I brought it with me on a cruise and I had to reapply twice a day because it would chip so much. In and out of the water. There were days I didn’t even go swimming and it would chip. It was constant maintenance the whole week.

Dries Quickly but Messy

3 out of 5 stars
Alice - 27 days ago, Verified purchaser
Dries quickly, but it's difficult to apply without getting everywhere. Very thin layers would help, but it's hard to get a very thin layer with the brush. I greatly prefer the normal Essie polish.

Jenny - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
Beautiful color, but the applicator brush is really thick and hard to use on nails without getting it on the surrounding skin. It does dry quickly. My main issue is that it chips so fast! Even with two coats and using the Sally Hansen quick dry clear top coat, it chipped within 2 days. I am going to stick with OPI in the future.
1 reply from Essie Team team - 1 month ago
Hi there Jenny! We wish you could see the results you were hoping for with the expressie quick dry nail color ‘streetwear n tear’. Because the expressie colors dry fast (in about a minute), we included a larger, ergonomic brush to get the color on fast. Applied to bare nails in 2 coats, this color should last for days.

The texture is very….interesting. Definitely not the norm for Essie, and I’m not a huge fan of how it looks when it dries. THAT BEING SAID - it does dry quickly and came in clutch for a wedding. I used it on my toes, so it did the job and no one was looking closely enough to notice anything.
