Don't know what it is, but I find a lot of Essie polishes to be extremely runny and hard to apply. This one is no different. Great colour in the bottle, but takes at least three coats to get good coverage. Definitely more of a jelly formula than a creme, though.
This polish takes 3-4 thin coats to build up to an opaque colour. Was surprised, but the colour is as shown.
The colour is beautiful, nice light turquoise. However, I found the consistency to be extremely runny, and it definitely takes at least 3 coats to to get the colour on the bottle.
The shade is more dusty irl than a lot of the reviews let on but the color is still bright. It is a green leaning (not a match for Tiffany blue) turquoise crelly? It has qualities that lend it to both the jelly and the creme families. This polish is quite sheer and needed 3-4 coats for full coverage but at least it dried relatively fast!
