Ever the Eternal Optimist, she went from Chinchilly to Haute as Hello.

I love nail polish, but it seems that whenever I use it, within a day it is chipped. I have been given professional manicures as a gift several times as well, and each time, I get a chip or a smudge within 24 hours.
Recently, I picked up Essie at my local store because it was on sale, and I liked the ballet slipper color. When I got it home and applied it, I realized that it goes on nearly clear. I put it on Friday to try out the color, thinking I would redo it for a wedding on Saturday. To my surprise, it looked fresh on Saturday. I have now had the polish on for 5 days, and there is not a single chip, even though I have been doing cleaning, gardening, etc. I have a job interview today, and it seems pointless to redo my nails because the 5 day old manicure is absolutely perfect! I will certainly buy Essie again!
I'm really happy with this polish. Below are the facts.
Firstly, Essie Licorice is a very true black, and by that, I mean it's the kind of black that is very obviously black. For the purpose of this review, let's forget the whole "black's not a color, it's a shade" routine. There are many different shades of black, some being blue-, green-, yellow-, and red-based. So sometimes, you might view a black thing as dark navy blue or dark brown, charcoal, dark burgundy, deep hunter green, etc. Essie Licorice doesn't have that problem. You'll know it's genuine, honest black as soon as the 2nd coat is on (the 1st coat will appear brown, but only because this polish needs 2 coats to achieve full opaqueness). To me, the truest black is yellow-based black. A yellow undertone only makes black blacker, with no hint of any other color, whereas any other color-based black will just over-power the black and turn it into whatever color the undertone is. That’s why sometimes black things appear a dark blue, brown, charcoal, green, burgundy, etc. Endless story short, Essie Licorice is yellow-based, and it’s good.
Secondly, Essie Licorice is nice and glossy (unlike a certain polish by the brand that rhymes with Schmaybelline, which goes dull and matte after 24 hours). Essie Licorice looks like wet PVC or candy-coated black jewels. A previous reviewer said it’s glossy, but not so glossy as to appear gothic or fetishy. As a macabre man who kind of likes fetish-inspired accessories, I find this polish to be right up my dark, weird alley.
Thirdly, the polish lives up to its chip-resistant claim.Read more ›
It applies really well; opaque on the first coat. I highly recommend a top coat, however, because even though the formula is fast-drying it is also prone to nicks/scratches.
Seal it with a top coat to keep it looking fresh and you're good to go.

I love the color is fully opaque in two coats. Many grays that I buy require more coats, or they become clumpy. I love the color and the formula of this polish.Published 1 day ago by Amazon Customer
