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 - 5 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

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The perfect fall color! This is a gorgeous deep red. A few layers of this and you’re ready for a fall night out. The brush did make it a little harder to get a thin streak-less coat so I needed at least 3 layers

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love the coverage of this nail polish, it's really flattering and opaque. The brush makes it easy to apply, I struggle with other brands just because they have horrible brushes but great polish. It lasted me about 2 weeks on my toes, wearing sneakers and sandals. Overall, love!

Long Lasting Before Chipping

5 out of 5 stars
jbruni - 13 days ago

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] *I received this product complimentary for reviewing purposes.* Essie has been a favorite brand of nail polish for me for years. It is affordable and easy to find at most stores. This shade is a gorgeous mint color and I love pastels for Spring. It is a more thin formula that requires two or three coats for full opacity. On me, it lasts 3 or 4 days before chipping. I do wash dishes daily and extra hand washing for my job as well, so it is really put to the test. I’d definitely recommend trying!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love Essie’s nail polishes and this one also didn’t disappoint! It looks more like a fuschia on my nails and is perfect for spring. The smaller brush allows for more precision and it dries down fast.
