Hi there! Thank you for your feedback on the Essie Nail Polish, in the shade Berry Naughty. We are disappointed to hear that you did not get the results you expected and you had chipping. We will share this information with the rest of our team and we hope that you will continue to try and explore our products with satisfaction in the future.

Doesn’t apply smoothly no matter what you do. Stains your nails.
1 reply from Essie Team team - 25 days ago
Hi there Shopper1919, we can imagine how frustrating that must be, and we want to understand what happened just as much as you do. By the second coat, all essie nail colors should look perfect. While a base coat is a good idea for any mani, its especially important to use with deep colors to seal the nail bed and avoid staining.

Doesn't read as pink at all. Thin so looks streaky even after 2 coats, If you want a streaky white you might like it, otherwise no.

Clumpy Polish!

ninaattarget - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
This polish looks clumpy on the nails no matter what. It separates and chunks up. I thought I remembered really liking this shade but I either have that wrong or they changed formulas. I can’t even use this one.

Hi there, we want to understand what happened just as much as you do. Your bottle of polish sounds nothing like our nail enamel! After 2 coats of polish, your color should look perfect.

Tiffany - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
Definitely nowhere even close to the color in the picture. I would suggest going in to the store and looking at it in person. It is a very muted, weird pink.
1 reply from Essie Team team - 2 months ago
Hi there Tiffany, we want to understand what happened just as much as you do. The color ‘pencil me in’ should be a vibrant, magenta pink nail polish with blue undertones. We get that the way images appear on our devices may not be as true to color as we would like but your description of this color does not sound right. 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 green I got was much more yellow than the polish shown in the product image. If you’re going for a sickly “Shrek” color, this polish makes you look fresh from the swamp.

Hi there, We wish you could see the results you were hoping for with the color Win Me Over. This nail enamel should be a muted khaki-green nail polish with yellow 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

Never dries, clumpy

Streaky and thick. It clumps up when you try to even it out. Will not go on evenly at all and never fully dries down no matter how thin the coat is.
1 reply from Consumer Care Center team - 3 months ago
Hello Peanuts123 ! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with this bottle of the color 'ballet slippers'. Nothing about the results you describe for this classic pale pink with a subtle, sheer finish sounds right. The polish should flow easily onto the nail and by the second coat your results should be perfect.

This is a deep green almost looks black from faraway nail polish color. My only issue is that nail polish chips off very easily on the tips of my nails. I have had to do a few re coats on my nails.

BullseyeBabe - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
The perfect pink! I’ll put this on when I need a good, girly neutral. Be warned, it’s extremely sheer so I usually put on 3 coats which can be time consuming. It also lasts a little longer than other polishes so I don’t have to apply it as much.
