Bad quality
Sampled

I loved the color of the nail polish when I received it (blue lagoon) and I couldn't wait to test it out. I used a nail polish primer, the nail polish, and then a top coat. I got to work the next morning and the polish was already chipping. By the end of my work day (I have a desk job) I was missing several big chips. I found this product to be VERY disappointing.

Rich hue goes on smoothly
Sampled

This rich opaque polish is perfect after 2-3 coats. The brush makes for easy application and the color (Blue Lagoon) is dark enough for winter but can also be worn year round.

Great Colors, Needs a top coat.
Sampled

First thoughts: The blue color I got in my birchbox is a very lovely color on my skin tone. (olive? warm? etc.)

However Essie, is the only brand I have come across so far that is less likely to chip without a top coat.

This brand might be prone to chipping without a top coat.

Thin product
Sampled

The color of the actual nail polish was much darker than the picture shows. It's more of a dark denim. The polish is very thin, it took three coats to fully cover my nails. Most nail polishes only need two coats. One nice thing about this polish that I liked was that it is very very shiney when it dries. It looks like a top coat was already applied.

Smooth

Blue Lagoon is such a beautiful color!!! It looks like velvet when you pair it with a matte top coat. Gorgeous. Many more colors by alessandro are on my list of must buys.

Gorg!

Blue lagoon is so, so pretty. Fantastic consistancy, smooth application, and the bottle is easy to handle. Lasted for days, and I'm a nurse whose hands take a LOT of abuse. Got tons of compliments!!!

Nice, just wish they were cheaper.

I really loved the color. (Blue lagoon) It is just this perfect dark, muted blue that is so lovely. Perfect for fall/winter. It went on quite smooth, might not have needed two coats, but looked better with two. Good bottle and handle design. If they were not so outrageously priced, I would buy more. Call me old fashioned or just plain cheap, but I don't feel like nail polish should ever cost over $10.

Nice polish
Sampled

This sample is a great color for toes. I put two coats on my fingernails right when I got it (without a base coat and top coat) and it started to chip off the next day. Will try again with a top coat to see if it helps.
