This was my first Essie purchase. I have never seen a more beautiful polish color and love this more than any other color I've ever owned. The consistency, however, is a joke. It is so watery/thin that it almost unusable. I saw the other reviews that said they had to use 2 coats. I think maybe the second was with a very heavy hand. I had a base coat and still needed 2-4 coats to get my nail covered completely. I will never again purchase this brand because of it. I wouldn't pay anything for it. Not 5 cents. The color, on the other hand, I have been desperately trying to find a dupe for. I have come close with a few premium brands that I can still get on sale for around $5-6 at a Beauty Supply store. I assume I'll get some thumbs down from people who simply just do not agree with my opinion, but it is just that, my OPINION. And it is very honest based on a product I have tried using in multiple ways (with different base coats, no base coat, longer dry time between coats, etc.) for almost a half bottle worth of product. I have come to the conclusion that it is really not worth it at all.
