Have been buying this shade for years. Just bough my new bottle for the fall, and sad to see that the brush has been changed for a wider one - too wide for my nails! Merino Cool - actual color is darker than shown on this site.
I had been eyeing this for a while and finally caved when I found one that was just made this year. This is a beautiful fall colour that is quite distinct from all of the other ones I own. The formula is great, for the most part completely opaque in two coats. I honestly think this is shinier and more durable than most essie polishes. I would say the wear is similar to the gel couture line. Definitely a good buy!
This color is absolutely stunning, both in the bottle and on my nail! However I'm not a huge fan of the formula, which does a pretty poor job of self-leveling and seems to glom onto itself especially on the top part of the brush (It actually dripped out of the cap and onto me). This polish must be painted on very thickly to look even and it often does not cleanly cover the tips of my nails. I've never had this problem with an essie polish before. Hope I just got a weird bottle and this isn't some kind of new formula.

I found this at Kohls today. The first time a nail color called out to me. I feel like I've finally found "my" signature color!!! Won't be caught without my Essie Merino Cool. Some reviews say it's a fall color, but I'm going to be wearing it year round!!! Kudos to Essie!!!!!
