I only have 2 Essie polishes and I was not impressed with either one of them – streaky, watery and just not what I expect in a polish so I’m not really willing to spend on these when for a few bucks more, I can get a Zoya or OPI polish that is likely to give better results.

I used to have the same issue with Essie polishes, but I must say their latest collections really impressed me. They must have improved their formula.

Yep, I have the same problems with them. I wanted to love them, but they are very streaky and they chip on me in like a day :(. I’m glad I’m not the only one…

I TOTALLY agree! The OPI formula is superior to even some of the higher end brands whereas Essie…. Sort of goes on like a drug store polish. Some of these colors look pretty, but I’m not willing to risk it.

Weird, Essie is my go to when I want a no hassle quick and easy polish application! And the OPIs I’ve tried have all been fussy (though that’s partly ’cause I don’t like their brush). I have around 20 essie polishes, and the only one thats I didn’t like the formula of was Fiji.
Maybe I’ve just been lucky?

Essie’s also my favourite brand. Never had any troubles with them in all honesty. Even the mini bottles.. the key is to wipe the brush off so there’s not too much on there. Also make sure u shake it and let it sit for a minute before u start painting. I prefer them over any other brand really.

I’m picking up this entire collection. I have a moderate collection of fingernail polishes (about 70+ bottles) and for some reason I always reach for the Essie bottles.

I bought For The Twill Of It, and The Lace is On about two weeks ago. The description “rich maple with reflective olive shimmer” is odd?? on me, it’s beetle wings in a nail polish form. a very strong emerald to purple duochrome, opaque in two coats.

and The Lace is On is just one of those pretty gem tones that glows. I would call it a borderline glass-fleck. It’s gorgeous, but very dupeable. Sure Shot from their permanent collection is almost exact.

I’ve never really had much issue with my Essie polishes chipping (and I have quite a few). I tend to get an average of 5 days of wear out of them. This collection looks great! Not necessarily typical fall colours, which is nice to see.
