Q: Why are the pictures not matching up with the essie nail colors? For example, "Clothing Optional" is supposed to be a rosey color but it shows up as gray. Want to make sure I'm ordering what I need.

submitted by kfern - 6 years ago
  • A: yes i ordered the purple and mine was dark dark purple

    submitted bygiginails - 4 years ago
  • A: I'm not sure why it doesn't match up. The color I received was sage/ grey not teal at all.

    submitted byJamie - 6 years ago
  • A: I ordered Go Ginza-a nice light purple, I got Go Ginza a super pale lilac-almost white!!! so sad. I'm returning for the Play date-which looks a bit dark, but it should be perfect cuz they seem much lighter in person.

Q: is this gel nail polish

submitted by Laura - 1 year ago
  • A: Hi there Laura! The shape of the bottle will help you tell which nail formula you’re looking at. The Gel Couture nail enamels come in the bottle with a twisted shape. The classic nail enamels come in the iconic square bottles and the quick dry colors come in the elongated bottle.

  • A: Great question Laura! Our salon-quality nail color formula is a traditional nail polish, not gel. It has flawless coverage and high glossy shine. For real-time answers to all your beauty questions, use the “Chat with a Virtual Beauty Consultant” button on any beauty product page.

Beautiful, rich color but was very thick and left bubbles and smudged easily for much longer than it should have due to the thickness of the polish.

Wicked

Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
Karyna - 6 days ago, Verified purchaser
I adore essie's Wicked. It only takes one coat to get the gorgeous black cherry color. It needs to be reapplied after a couple days though, if not using a topcoat. Personally, I don't mind because I enjoy painting my nails with this color and just the color alone looks fantastic. As far as I know, no other brand makes this particular shade of dark red and makes it accessible and affordable. ❤️

I order it online vs in person. And it's so awful. I definitely should have never trusted the photos for the colors cause it's so yellow
1 reply from Essie Team team - 5 days ago
Hi there, We would be disappointed too, but we get what a challenge it can be to select a color based on how it appears on your device. The color ‘check your baggage’ should be a creamy bright yellow with red undertones. If you would like to speak to us directly about your recent purchase, give us a call @ 866-313-7845 M-F 9 am-5:30 pm ET

Its a lot more sheer than the pictures depict it as. I really hate how many layers I've got to put on
1 reply from Essie Team team - 5 days ago
Hi there, We wish you could see the results you were hoping for with the color ‘snooze in’. This color should be a warm, pinky coral nail polish with yellow undertones. By the second coat, all of our colors should be perfect. If you would like to speak to us directly about your recent purchase, give us a call @ 866-313-7845 M-F 9 am-5:30 pm ET

Yellow?

2 out of 5 stars
Ffmm - 16 days ago
originally posted on essie.com
At first I thought I loved this polish but after a few wears I have changed my mind. The colour starts out as a very pretty sheer with just a hint of pink, but after a day or two it develops this ugly yellow tone to it. I can even see a bit of the yellowing going on inside the bottle. I've only ever seen that happen to very very old polishes so I'm pretty disappointed that it's happening to a brand new bottle already. It also takes a very delicate hand to apply it without streaks and takes forever to dry. Not a fan after all
1 reply from Consumer Care Center team - 14 days ago
Hello Ffmm. Thank you for sharing your experience with the color 'sugar daddy'. We want to understand what happened just as much as you do. Certain polish pigments can fade over time when exposed to natural light. This is why, when you go on sunny vacations, you might find that manicure shades shift slightly during wear. By the second coat your color should look perfect and the results should dry in minutes. If you would like to speak to us directly about your recent purchase, give us a call @ 866-313-7845 M-F 9 am-5:30 pm ET

The Original Sugar Daddy polish was a classy sheer with a slight peach/pink. It was my number one most popular polish because it looks sensational with most skin colors….and had a beautiful upscale finish. This ‘redo’ of Sugar Daddy looks like every other bubble pink on the market. Please bring back the original color formula. Please!!
1 reply from Consumer Care Center team - 18 days ago
Hello Jones35! Thank you for reaching out regarding the the color 'sugar daddy'. We are sorry to hear you no longer find the color to appear the way it used to. Aging of polish ingredients may cause color to fade, yellow, or shift over time—discard any bottles that have been opened more than 2 years (or that are unopened but have been stored for more than 2 years). The production of our iconic shades has also advanced over the years – higher quality standards, pure color pigments, and new innovative ingredients allow for a better, more consistent product, but also can result in some color variation from the past.

Perfect fall color

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I live the deep darker shades, so banana mama is straight up my alley. It is a plum color that goes well with any season, but I’ll definitely rock it a little in the fall. Had the typical nail polish scent that lessens after it dries down. Classic Essie packaging with a nice shine, which you can highlight further with a top coat. Smooth and easy to apply. I’m happy with this product.

Hello jesshhh. Thank you for your feedback on the color 'hi maintenance. We wish you could see the results you were hoping for. This color should be a sheer pale pink, its perfect for a french manicure. In the world of nail colors, there are degrees of sheer. For a pink with a bit more coverage, take a look at the color 'mademoiselle'. https://www.essie.com/nail-polish/enamel/pinks/mademoiselle If you would like to speak to us directly about your recent purchase, give us a call @ 866-313-7845 M-F 9 am-5:30 pm ET

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very bright and pigmented, you only need 1 or 2 swatches depending on your preference. The polish is quick drying and a little goes along way and the bonus it has very little smell.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is such a fun minty color. It pairs well with my skin tone. Some pastels feel too light but this one has enough pigment that it’s noticeably minty. I also love that Essie polishes tend to last a long time without chipping
