It's soooo pretty, and easy to apply. I have had a few streaky polishes from Essie, this one is superb! Almost perfectly opaque in one coat (but 2 just to make it 100%). I am super impressed. It looks very chic on the nail. In very low light it can look black, but that's the case for a lot of darker colours. It's cool toned, a hunter/forest/rich green. I want to say it's the equivalent to a vampy red, but a green obviously. Vampy green.
Love this deep forest green. It's so lush and looks amazing on. I thought it was going to be like "Going Incognito" (which is another green I adore) but it's much darker. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
I've looked for a green like this for a long time. Its a perfect dark green that isnt too mixed with too much black, blue, yellow or anything else. Its just finally a perfect deep forest green that is classy and neutral but not so dark that you can't tell its green. Im really glad I got this one!
This is one of the four shades I just purchased from the ESSIE SPRING 2016 collection. I am in love with all of them but have only tried this as a pedi. It is perfect as a two coater, it dried quickly and leveled to a perfect and shiny finish. You will be impressed with the colour saturation. It one of the more highly pigmented greens that essie has created.
