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 - 5 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 - 10 months ago

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 - 11 days 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

Perfect birthday girl color ♡

I prefer my natural nails and gel polish seems to always make mine brittle. I'm not sure if that is normal. I decided to do my nails myself and went to my local drug store to find a nail polish for my birthday. This was 100% unplanned, but they had one birthday girl left and I fell in love with the color. It's a girly pink with a shifting shimmer. It doesn't last as long as gel, but it didn't damage my nails so I will definitely keep purchasing colors.

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

Pretty sheer color, but chips more quickly than any other Essie shade I've used. I don't know if it's the sparkle polish that doesn't adhere well or something else, but it's frustrating. I recommend Mademoiselle instead.
1 reply from Consumer Care Center team - 1 month ago
Hi there CatLI, We can see this wouldn’t be the result you were hoping for…but we don’t know why this sheer pink is not adhering as well as your ‘mademoiselle’. Both are popular classic sheer pinks.

Perfect Pink

This is the perfect "hot" pink. I've gravitated toward this color for more years than I remember. I had a brand/shade that was my go-to forever. This is finally that replacement. Perfect pink - not too bright, not too dark, great application in one coat. Can't wait for a spring pedi in this shade. Great for a winter mani to brighten the spirit!

Bought this polish hoping for a pale pink polish and was disappointed that it is actually a pale yellowish-beige. If you, too, are looking for pink, look at another Essie option.

Hello lisaplanotx! Thanks for sharing your experience with the color 'vanity fairest'. This color should be a sheer iridescent pastel pink...that is not the result we see on your nails!

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 - 2 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.

I don't get the hype about Essie nail polish. It costs a lot but it doesn't last more than a few days. I get better results from the stuff at the dollar store. I guess you get what you pay for. This is my third color of Essie and they are all this way.

Hello DIYMom. Thank you for sharing your experience with the color 'eternal optimist'. We are sorry to hear that this product did not leave you with the results you were hoping for, we can imagine how frustrating it must be...Applied with a base coats, 2 coats of color and a top coat, your manicure should last for at least a week.

BullseyeBabe - 2 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.

I’m on my 3rd bottle of Not Red-y For Bed. It’s the most beautiful vibrant medium red shade that’s punchy but also classy looking. (It’s brighter than pictured in sunlight.) I wear it 80% of the time and year round. It just goes with literally every thing and every season. Fantastic smooth application, dries well and stays. I hope they keep making it!

Hi Cme, We wish you could see the results you were hoping for with the this muted khaki-green nail polish with yellow undertones. The color Win Me Over should be a mid toned green.
