Color: "Lady Like." It's a thick opaque nail polish. This pink appears to be grey or purple depending on the lighting, and against my Asian skin. It smooths out well on its own but I add Essie top coat to gives it glossy shine. 2 layers of this polish would be a sufficient coverage, but I'm meticulous, so I painted 3 times. The finish is so even that you really cannot find any flaw. This color is subdued and goes with a wide range of clothing. I'm a mom of 2 kids, and making statement with my outfit isn't my thing anymore. At this point in my life, "Lady Like" is subtle but noticeable enough at the same time, and I really like it.

Very disappointed with this shade (Bouncer, It's Me). I thought it would have been a bright royal blue since it's from the neon collection but it's a dark blue. 3 to 4 coats will have to be applied since the formula is thin and comes out sheer when applied.

Lovely polish! Perfect mint green color and long-lasting. Highly reccomend this and other Essie products.

I get complements on this color often. It is a light purple to lilac grey in color. I will sometimes layer with a sparkly pink polish to give it a different look.

I love this color but agree with the poor bottle design: I, too, have polish all over the top and outside neck of the bottle. I travel a lot and every time I use the polish, I have to wipe off the neck, along with a lot of nail polish. A better design for there bottles is imperative.

I bought the 'Vanity Fairest.' It is very sheer with just a hint of pink, exactly what I hope for. I love these sheer shades!

I have to say I'm not super impressed with Essie polishes in general, but my most recent color purchase was Fiesta. The consistency is never the same and even with top coat I have chipping the very next day! Kind of disappointed because they have so many cute colors.

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.
