Review of Essie Nail Polish

Reader Review of the Day: Essie Nail Polish

Are you always on the pursuit of a great nail polish line, particularly when it comes to color selection, chip resistance, and its ability to stick around longer than a nanosecond? Well, reader Sara Rose is psyched about Essie Nail Polish ($7), and here's what she has to share:

"I didn't think that this polish was going to hold up to my other two champs — OPI and Chanel — but it does, and at a great price too. Around here, OPI retails at $9 to $15 and Chanel from $24 to $38. That's a bit spendy for my current budget. But these are a nice treat once in a while, and all the colors I've tried have been really long-wearing, true to life, and give just the right mix of sheerness and coverage. They also last very nicely. I've had a couple over a year and they have yet to go gloppy. My favorite is Sugar Daddy — a perfect neutral pink that is wearable for everyone and every occasion."

I love essie nail polish..the colors are really nice and they apply great. it usually lasts me at least 4 days and i am on a computer all day long so it's great to find nail polish that doesn't chip. i switch between essie and opi depending on how much money i feel like spending the new colors that come out.

I love Essie. I have a beautiful rose-colour with a slight gold sheen. Stunning! They have gorgeous, fun colours for summer too.

essie is great! my nailpolish inevitably chips within a DAY if i get bright colors, and essie has a wonderful range of neutral pinks and beiges that last forever. personal favorite - pachinko pale.

Essie is a wonderful brand of nail polish. I seldom paint my nails, but when I do, I go for this brand :)

I would never pay $38 for a bottle of nail polish.

I switch between Essie and OPI and I really like it. There's a beauty store near my house that usually sells them for half off, which ends up being a great deal and the colors are always bright and fun. It goes on without clumping, dries nicely and lasts at least four days, which is all I care about.
