I ordered the Mint Candy Apple and it was the perfect shade of turquoise I had been looking for. I love Essie products. They last pretty long for the price. I usually buy OPI, China Glaze or Deborah Lippmann, but for the quality and price point I will start looking at Essie colors from now on. I highly recommend this.

I really like the color, but I do not like the bottle. When I shake up the color and open the bottle, there is polish all over the rim and inside the cap. 2nd time I closed the top as tightly as possible and still polish all over the place. Makes it very difficult to open and very wasteful.

I received my Nail Polish in a shorter time than I expected. The condition was excellent and I am enjoying using the product so much.

Great rich color. I've been wearing versions of this deep aqua for years. It looks sensational.

The perfect pink. Love this Essie color! Super fast delivery, although it arrived in a shoe sized box- perhaps Zappos could have a smaller sized shipping box for items like this?

My nails are dry almost instantly and it leaves a really great shine! Also helps my Essie nail polish last even longer than it already does. Highly recommend this product, and all Essie nail polish for that matter. :)

Love this color! I get compliments EVERY time I wear it, and of course Essie is always superior in coverage. When I wear a top coat over Essie, people always think it's gel polish! Yay!

Love this color! Sparkly but tasteful enough for a 45 year old to wear! Playful and elegant! Wears like iron! Have had it on my toes for three weeks with no chipping! I've always been an OPI girl. Now I may be tempted to switch brands?

I have ordered a couple sheer shades and love them. They're not to fully cover your nail in pure color. It's to add a nice sheer tint...for me, it looks like a french manicure. One that you can alter the base shade. Little bit of sheer color that dresses up the nail and defines the nail tip from the bed. Love the sheer tints, ordering more.

I bought Minimalistic, expecting a sheer pink. It's creamy-sheer and when applied is streaky. Two coats barely covered the streaks.The product itself is very good and long lasting.

I bought Penny Talk because I saw this at the grocery store a couple of years ago and HAD to finally buy it. This color is GORGEOUS! It pops out. The paint is ultra rich and high quality like you would expect from Essie. I'm going to have to buy some of the other metallic colors eventually. SO happy with this buy!

I absolutely love this color! It is a beautiful dark grey with green undertones that looks different in different light. Definitely a great updated/modern look for people who traditionally go with black or similar dark colors. Polish goes on easily and mine stayed on (with a clear topcoat) without any nicks for over a week, which is a record for me. Comes off cleanly, too, unlike a lot of other polishes. I highly recommend it.

I have used this this base coat for a few months now and love it! It dries super fast and is very thin. I think it has made my nails stronger. I try to at least have this on if even I am not wearing any color. I recommend it!

As always Essie makes a high-quality shade. I bought school of hard rocks, which looks like a lighter green/gray both online and in the bottle, but which gets significantly darker and more turquoise with two coats. Haven't yet tried it with just one coat.

My nail salon had one bottle of this great color, but not a spare for me to purchase for touch-ups. I checked a local store which should have had it, but didn't, Then I thought of Zappos! Sure enough, they had it and got it to me in their usual swift delivery time. I get lots of compliments on the color and it goes with everything. It's basically gray and a light-medium intensity of color, which works well with my pale skin. Absolutely a great neutral for fall & winter! Endurance is about average; no polish ever lasts well on me, though I find certain base & top coats hold it better than others.

I bought "Shop 'Til I Drop" because it looked gorgeous in the bottle. It's way too sheer, though. It goes on streaky, and even after two coats, you have sheer spots and streaks. I returned it. Too bad, because the color was perfect.

Every time I use Essie nail polish, I get compliments. This color, in particular, has a nice grey undertone that ranges in color from light green to army green, depending on the light. I love Essie nail polish!

Like all Essie polish, this new shade is gorgeous, goes on smoothly, and lasts, without chipping or fading, for a long time. Getting lots of compliments on Vested Interest and on my other new Essie favorite, For The Twill of It.

I love Essie nail polish, but "mucho dinero" was a neutral peach color that was unnervingly too similar to my own skin's undertones (I'm pretty pale). It would probably better suit someone with a darker skin color.

I received many compliments on this color and when I went to buy a second bottle, I couldn't find it in the stores. So I ordered it on line.

At 23 I have started to notice that I have a few ridges that look like ripples on my nails that are unfortunately genetic. I was on the hunt for a nail treatment that would remedy my problem without costing a fortune. Being as I am the first review I had no idea how this treatment would work out. Fortunately Essie has impressed me with Fill the Gap! It smooths my nails out while giving them a matte finish when dry, and over nail polish my nails look so smooth and even!
