It doesn’t matter how many times we’ve given ourselves a mani—we always end up with stray polish all over our cuticles. Luckily, this German brand is out to make the whole affair easier. Considered one of the premier professional lacquer brands in Europe, alessandro crossed the ocean to bring us its rock-solid formula and specially designed bottle. With both bright, flashy colors and universally flattering neutrals, you’re bound to find a shade you love.
I sampled alessandro Nail Polish in Blue Lagoon. I wasn't in love with the color, but I did like the polish itself. I applied a base coat, two coats of polish, and a top coat and it lasted 5 days without chipping. I'm considering trying it in a different color. The Blue Lagoon was a little difficult to pull off at work.4
The color is very pretty, but I have used a large number of less expensive brands that hold up better than this polish. With just two coats of the color, I had gigantic chips in less than 24 hours. With a bottom coat, two coats of color, and a top coat, I had smaller chips in just 3 days. For this price point, I expect it to hold up at least as well as, or better than, drug store polishes.2
This nail polish goes on smooth and dries evenly. I'm not a huge fan of the color from the sample, but the other colors they offer look nice. It has nice grip too.5
Love the color but doesn't go on your nails well like other nail polishes...2
I really liked how long this nail polish stayed. I liked the color, and my daughter wants to take it from me!
The nail polish was great! The formula went on smoothly and had great coverage. It also lasted longer on my nails than most polishes.5
Easy to apply and looked fabulous. Super shiny! I can't wait to buy more colors!5
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.1
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.4
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.
