This was the very first Essie I bought, about a year ago (not from NPA). I had heard a lot of good things about Essie, and had only ever used OPI at that point, apart from the cheap drug store brands. I hated the formula on this - it went on thick, clumpy and streaky and long to dry. I had never used anything this difficult to apply. The colour is very pretty, once it's on and dried. I would not recommend this. There are lots of other NP's in this colour that probably are a lot easier to work with.

The colour is pretty. However I bought it for the shimmer and it doesn't show up at all on your nails. I found the formula a bit streaky and it was hard to get full coverage. I am a big Essie fan but this one disappointed unfortunately.

I was disappointed with this nail polish because it looks so gorgeous in the bottle (there's a noticeable blue shimmer), but after painting on 3 coats, all I got was a light purple creme. I just wish the shimmer showed up on my nails, but it didn't at all.
