Worst I've ever had

I recently purchased Blanc by Essie. I'm so disappointed! Came on super thick, and dried with tons of tiny bubbles. I had to apply 3 coats to get it as even as possible. My sister even tried (she wears polish more than I) and her application had the same results. I don't mind spending the extra money on a quality product, but I would've been better off with white out and top coat.

Essie's lighter colors go on too thin/translucent

I'm a big Essie fan; I have probably between 80 and 100 different shades. However, I have consistently been underwhelmed with the white and pastel shades, because they go on so translucent that you have to do many coats. And when you have to apply so many thick layers, nail polish often doesn't dry as well. Compared to other drugstore white and pastel polishes (not the 99 cent stuff but the ones in a similar price range to Essie), Essie's white-ish colors are nowhere near as opaque and are so much more labor-intensive. Thanks, but no thanks, Essie.

Just bought this today. I have been searching for a white nail polish for about 2 years, but to no avail. They were either too sheer, too streaky, or required waaay too many coats to be opaque (like 4 or 5 which would chip off pretty quickly). I used this with "First Base" base coat, 3 thin coats of colour, and the gel top coat and it looks exactly like all the manicures I have seen on tv without having to go to a salon and get Shellac. Thank you Essie!!!

streaky, more silvery color

In the bottle, it looks more beige, but on the nails it's more like a pale white. It's also super streaky, and personally I think it's way too bright.

Everyone else wrote reviews about how great this is and I really wanted this to be great, but it wasn't. I don't know if its because mine was sitting on the shelf for a long time, but it is super sticky and streaky. I have to put on 4 layers of this on to make it almost not streaky. In my opinion, this polish is bad. But i love the color!

this is the first essie nail polish i have purchased but it was the best. i got my nails done in a salon and a lady picked out the color for me and i have loved it ever since. i could wear this color every day for forever; it compliments my skin tone, it matches everything and i get so many compliments on my nails. i purchased the apricot cuticle care along with the ridge filling base coat and the good to go top coat and i get a perfect manicure every time. i have since purchased multiple shades of essie nail polish and i take it with me. i don't even let the nail salons use their polish anymore :)

I bought this today and just tried it out. Amazing! Unlike other cheap white nail polishes, this one leaves no brush streaks. Finally a white that makes my nails look elegant and pretty.

Maybe I'm not a sheer-nail girl. This is my least favorite color in my Essie collection.

I got this polish on the clearance shelf, and I was super excited that I'd bought it for so little money. As soon as I put it on, though, it was very streaky. The thin brush doesn't help much either. Although, after two or three (most likely three) coats, it is a truly brilliant white. Perfect for small nail art designs.

I use white nail polish a lot and have had major struggle with finding one that I was happy with. most whites I've used are very thick and globby but blanc is so lovely, not globby at all but perfectly opaque! LOVE IT!!!

Brand new bottle. Used with Essie base & top coat. First mani, color chipped the same day. Second mani, color chipped the second day. Third day, color chipped the same day. Not a winner.e

This is very similar to limo scene, but without the streakiness. The best way to wear this colour is to wear mademoiselle or another pinky-nude as a first coat, then adore-ball as a second coat, and your nails will look very clean and classic.

Perfect Color and Base Color

I love this color because I can wear this color as is or I use it as a base-coat so that I can make the nail polish even brighter. I also like to use some and mix it with glitters like silver or gold or any color glitter at that to give the nail color a pop. I also use this for doing all my nail art designs and the consistency of the color is perfect, just one coat is all you need.

I bought this because Show Me The Ring was sold out, and I asked my Mom to help me find a shade that was similar to it. I found Imported Bubbly (or Imported Champagne), and I kind of liked it. Anyways, It was beautiful, but a little more pink than expected. I wore this to a holiday party and everybody complimented my nails, so everything worked out@

Essie Blanc is wonderfully versatile. With the popularity of white polish this summer, I was using it for every other manicure and pedicure. I rated it 4 stars because it takes 3 coats to achieve opacity. With 3 coats, it lasts several days, anywhere from 2 to 5, before chipping. The polish dries to the exact color as it appears in the bottle.

I've been looking for a white nail polish with an opaque finish for quite a long time. The polish isn't too thick or too watery, just the perfect consistence. The brush is easy to work with and applies smoothly,after two layers it is completely opaque and no stripes at all. It looks so good against a nice summer tan!

I was looking to do a nail design, just to liven up my plain shorts and a t-shirt summer "look," so I bought essie's "blanc." It was great for the base coat! Later I used a black detail pen to create a checkerboard. I know what you're thinking...."it's just white!" but this polish was great for the base.

This has become one of my favorite go to polishes for everyday wear. This gorgeous, barely there hint of pink works perfectly with my skin tone for a subtle manicure that suits any activity. Perfect for those days when anything can happen and you don't want to be over or under dressed.

Good white polishes are very hard to find. This shade is excelllent because it hardly chips, isnt white out in a bottle, and stays truly white unlike some other white polishes that tinge to a slight yellow with a strong top coat. Essie blanc is an essential to every collection.
