I was really scared ordering this, because the pictures and reviews on it vary so much. It seems to look anywhere from deep royal blue to a dusty cream medium blue in online pictures, so it really felt like a gamble if it would be anything close to what I was hoping for (A vibrant shocking cobalt). I was a bit sad when I saw the bottle and it looked kind of muted and dusty blue, but thankfully its not like that on the nails! I apply it like my neons, over a white polish base because I want my nails as bright as possible, and this combination is perfect. Vibrant cobalt meets royal blue, not too dark and not too light. I'd be the first person to be disappointed if this wasn't bright enough, and it is easily noticeable from a distance for sure. I also didn't notice any of the problems I saw noted in other reviews about it being thick and tricky to apply, mine is very nice and smooth - no different from any other polish. All in all Im very glad I finally bought this one.

Its a royal blue at best. Nothing even close to the electric blue you see in the ad. Beware. Won't be ordering again.

I found this to go on very dry. You have to apply it very fast or it starts to dry and streak before you finish one nail. It also dries matte, in my opinion. I didn't realize it was matte - I wouldn't have bought it. I got it for my toes to complement Bikini So Teeny on my hands.

The formula is great and the color is gorgeous, but it chips the next day, even with a top coat...

I thought that this was an amazing and beautiful color! A must have for this winter season! The formula of the bottle that I have is great, without streaks and a beautiful color that lasts for days without any chipping! Even without my favorite base and top coats! At first I thought that this color would not match with many outfits but I surprisingly found it matching with almost everything! A MUST BUY!

I have been using this color all winter! I have probably reapplied it at least 8 times! Unlike most reviews, I thought the formula was great and is a definite must have for the winter season! Essie did it again! Always impressed and I will remain purchasing Essie! Thanks!

The formula of the bottle I have is completely fine and the color really is gorgeous.

Like the review before mine, this polish is a terrible formula. At first I thought it was just my polish until I read reviews online. It's think and chunky at times and sometimes dried and before I could dip for my polish to finish the nail.
However, if you can bare through the stress of applying the polish it is well worth it and the colour is gorgeous! I love looking at my nails especially in well lit areas or in the daylight.
Next time I use it I'm going to add a bit of nail polish remover to see if it will thin out the polish for an easier application.

This has to be the worst fomula for Essie. There was so much drag and it being thick made a mess and the brush needed to be dipped each time. Waste of money, pretty colour but not worth the stress trying to apply it nicely.
So dissappointed I wasted my money on this one.
