I am a major Essie fan. I think they hands down have the best nail shades available and because i've been so impressed with them so far I thought I'd give the top coat a whirl.
First thing I want to praise them for is their displays! Even before I bought this product I was impressed. They have all the shades displayed easily and the treatments/bases/topcoats on a seperate side. I find this makes the whole process of selection so much easier and less stressful so A+ for that.
Next - the bottle design. It is so sleek and simple and I love the white lid. The colour is easily identified whether you store them in a box or on a shelf which I find helpful. It can be a little bit hard to open them sometimes but no where near as bad as OPI polishes - Just be sure not to screw the lid on too tight.
Right, on to the top coat itself! The formula, as always with Essie, is PERFECT. I have never encountered another polish which goes on so easily. Of course because its a top coat its less detectable if you muck up but to be honest I think Essie has made it so easy for you that you probably won't! It takes a few minutes to dry but once it does you can be sure its locked in. I will mention that I find I get the best results in terms of staying power when I pair it with other Essie polishes. Don't get me wrong its still good with other brands I just think its extra magical when paired with Essie because it's obviously made for it!
I can not and will not stop raving about Essie polishes and I thoroughly recommend you all go buy yourself some!
