I'm trying to save money and wanted to be able to do an at-home mani. I've always struggled with regular polish to get the super shiny and smooth finish they get at the salon and decided to try this stuff. HOLY SMOKES, IT IS GOOD. It goes on super smooth and very shiny. I am so unbelievably impressed. It has great coverage with just one coat and the top coat really makes it shine. It also dries super fast so I didn't have time to smudge it. I am typing this as my nails dry - SO IMPRESSED. I can't speak to how long it lasts, but it really does look amazing! Highly recommend for unskilled people who want a pro look.
Great color, but it’s been just over 24h and it’s pretty chipped already…. and it’s not like I’m a manual laborer, lol. I typed a little, washed some dishes wearing gloves, opened some Amazon packages.
This is a pretty standard nail polish, goes on easily, dries quickly, has the typical strong nail polish smell to it. Lasts reasonably long, nothing special to report here. I don't wear nail polish regularly, so keeping this one for special occasions.
I received the essie long lasting nail color in the color "Electric geometric" which is a pinkish red color. The color is pretty accurate to the listing photographs.
This is a thick polish that only needed 1 coat to get a full coverage look and it does have that gel nail polish look to it.
The coverage is decent but I did find that it started to chip on my finger nails after just 3 days. I am okay with that though because I normally take polish off after a few days anyway. It did stay on my toes better.
I would purchase this again in another color option.
This review is from my wife, as she is the one who tried it.
The color is nice, and it comes in a beautiful bottle. The brush seems to be of high quality (ignore my imperfect application as I was in a hurry and just wanted to test the nail polish). For the long-lasting part, I am not sure, as I only kept it for a day and then removed it. I will update the review later once I have enough time to test if the polish will chip or not.
After 2 coats of this nail polish, it looks like salon quality! I absolutely love the colour! For me, the nail polish chipped on day 2 of wearing it....but that was after some time doing household chores and a few rounds of dishes. Overall, I am very happy with this nail polish.
I rarely bother to paint my fingernails at all, as the polish never seems to last longer than 24 hours without getting chipped, dented or ruined in some way. I don’t like not being able to do anything with my hands for the ~1 hour it takes to apply a base coat, wait, apply 2 layers of the main polish and wait, and then finally a top coat, then wait ~15 minutes – 45 minutes to let everything set before doing anything. It’s not worth the time investment imo. I wash my hands frequently, am constantly working with my hands, and generally not pampering my fingers in any way that would allow a manicure to last longer than 1 – 2 days at best. This polish is awesome for summer toes though! I love the bright, fun color and it goes on like a dream. 2 thin layers gives a really nice, opaque finish and it looks glossy when topped with OPI Sec N’ Dry.
I would absolutely buy this color again as it was exactly what I was looking for after I ran out of my usual go-to Sally Hansen polish. Do I expect this Essie polish to last much longer than the SH? No, not really. I already put a dent in one nail from opening some wet cat food and one nail flaked a bit on the side after cooking and prepping a big batch of beef and barley soup while washing my hands frequently, and it’s only been… 10 hours?
