Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's alright :/ The color is a very faded white. At first, it is almost like a glazed look. In order for it to look nice, you'll have to build it up adding a few layers on. Overall, I did not enjoy this nail polish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating... I bought this yesterday as I've been looking for white nail polish for a while and Essie has never done me wrong before. It takes at least three coats to get opaque, but the nail polish takes forever to dry down so good luck doing the other codes in a timely manner. I've had to redo several nails multiple times because you'll think it's dry and then it'll completely wipe off on accident. Sad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Romance: Chips Hours After Applying I'm beginning to believe that all Essie nail polishes chip, no matter what you do. I have literally TONS of Essie polishes because the colors are true, vibrant, and beautiful; however, it does not last...not even a mere few hours. You'll get a beautiful color, but prepare to have to redo your nails either the same or next day. What a bad romance! Bold, beautiful, luster-packing colors that don't last. :(This happens with every single Essie polish I use, not even my inexpensive polishes chip as fast as Essie. I've applied Essie base coat, Essie polish, and an Essie top coat...and still the results are lame. I even resorted to no-chip Essie polish and the gel setter and still no luck. I adore Essie's colors, but that doesn't help any when the polish won't last! I painted my nails last night to prep for a huge business meeting with a potential client the next day and now I have to show up looking like I have on two-week old polish. To me, that's so unprofessional, especially when I'm trying to represent a company and gain new business. I prefer to look my best because appearance can be impactful. I wanted to be bold and confident, now I'm hiding my hands and can't wait for a lunch break to find a nearby store and purchase polish remover and just wear bare nails. :(This has become such an headache that I even tried looking online and talk to other Essie nail polish lovers, and they experience the same thing. My very first experience with Essie was years ago at a nail salon and the paint chipped the same day, but because of the adorable packing and beautiful colors, I decided that I would find a solution but literally years later, still no solution. Even the solutions Essie gives (no chip top coat) doesn't work. You'll see in pictures what I'm talking about. I didn't have my hands in water or really use my hands for much of anything and the polish chipped and this is by far the first time this has happened.One time I used Bikini So Teeny and it chipped the same hour I painted my nails! Honestly, it chipped so badly that you would have thought that I painted my nails and went out and lived in the wilderness with no supplies for a month. It's mind-boggling. Because of my continued failed experience I'm coming to the decision of finding cheap Essie dupes for all my colors that I have and sadly give my Essie polishes to my 8-year old niece a package it as a "gift." I'm sure that will make her happy because children can care less if their polish chips easily.Sadly, I think I'm ending this bad romance with Essie. It's like I'm purchasing tons of Essie polishes because it looks great in the bottle and on the shelves in the stores, but becomes similar to disappearing ink because within minutes or hours, the polish will begin to chip away.I love my polishes but Essie, I think I'm leaving you...I've had too many bad experiences (even from the salons) and refuse to buy anymore of your polishes because they only last in the bottle. I'll look for a similar brand but one that lasts.I'm giving this one start because the colors are true and vibrant but that means nothing once you put it on your nails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best summer color The review that mentions that this polish is "see-thru" is precisely right. But that's what makes this color AMAZING. I agree the word creamy is misleading, but OMG the formula is so unique - I have never ever come across a translucent coral red like this from any other brand of polish, and it is the ultimate summer color. You really only need one coat - unlike Essie's "creamier" colors, this goes on smooth with no streaky-ness. It's unique, super vibrant, flattering, and I got compliments every time I wear it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks amazing !!!! I went to a salon and wanted to try something different that usual so I got the shade Master Plan and I absolutely loved it. It is the perfect shade of gray and looks even better with a matte top coat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my second favorite color Love this color also... looks black but it is a very deep wine color similiar to Wicked.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More white than pink I was hoping for more pink hues in this nail polish, but it's definitely a white. It has a great shine to it, but it takes me about 3 coats to get the streaky look gone. Too thin of a polish for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first gray color purchase and I really like it. Looks pretty against my fading :( summer tan and will carry my fair skin through the fall and Chicago winter. Looks great with cream, black, or really any color. I'm not one to go with the dark black colors that many women prefer in winter. I'm light and blond and I don't think they're flattering on me. Master Plan is a perfect neutral, soft and feminine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing lasting power! I first put this on 6 days ago and there are no hints of any chips. A lot of the time I find that Essie polishes start to chip after 4 or so days, but not this time. I used three layers, and decided not to add a top layer to get a proper idea of its lasting power. A gorgeous color for this time of year, looks so chic. Had been salivating over this color for MONTHS, and so thrilled I picked it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The allrounder! I was looking for a more neutral colour without it looking dull or boring. I usually wear red (bordeaux, fishnet stockings, a-list, all lacquered up) or sometimes I go for a more darker vampy colour (licorice, lady godiva, wicked). What was missing was a nice neutral without being invisible. I wanted something brown or black but suited for the office. After checking the neutralz on this website I decided to buy it online without seeing it in real life. I'm so glad I did! It is the perfect colour! Interesting and at the same time pefect for all occasions all year round! Not too brown, not too gray. I'm rather fair, but it looks wonderful with my skin tone. The formula is thin, but not runny, exactly how I like it. Two coats for an opaque look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from flawless OMFG!! This nail polish revolutionized the way I look at and treat my nails. I love this color with all my heart and the reason I went looking for it on the website is because of a tragic incident. I needed to re-do a nail I messed up so I removed the nail polish and was about to re-do it when... I COULDN'T FIND THE NAIL POLISH!!! It honestly felt as if my heart was ripped out of my chest. I searched everywhere for days on end until I gave up hope and that's how I got to this website. I couldn't remember the name so I thought if I could find it I would recognize it and could replace it with a new one. unfortunately they don't have it currently because it is a fall and winter color but I will keep searching until the hole in my heart is filled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great staple polish Great coverage. Looks good on any skin tone. Perfect for both summer and winter. I find the colour looks different in different lighting so it is nice for summer and transitions well in the winter months also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty But... I saw this in Rite Aid, and HAD to have it. It was so pretty in the bottle and I didn't have an orange, so I bought it. It's beautiful, but it's definitely a jelly- not opaque. I put white under mine, and it was perfect. I was a little annoyed I had to do so. Essie polishes aren't usually like that, so this was surprising to me. I still recommend, because it really is gorgeous

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color Changes With Time I bought this polish for my junior prom nearly 4 years ago. I picked it up on a whim because I needed something quick that would match my dress. It was such a lovely color at the time, pale pink with a subtle pearl sparkle. I noticed as the years went by, the color changed to a light yellowish beige. Definitely not as pretty as the color it initially was. Granted, it has been a few years and it's natural for pale pink polishes to change color due to the formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pastel Heaven This is a lovely soft blue/purple shade.... think about the cute Easter dress you had as a child or the beautiful purple in a rainbow...this is the color. I love color on my nails and with a new job do not want to seem unprofessional and this color you can be fun and classy at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I bought this because of the other ladies reviews, and I couldn't be happier. They are all completely right, this color is amazing! I had a hard time applying it the first time I got it, but after some practice, I was able to get full coverage in two coats. I used Essie's gel setter to top it and they look wonderful. I really love this color, for my first time essie purchase, they have me hooked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forever in love I love love love this nail polish. It's a very pale pink. I find that I need to put a few coats on to get the shade of pink that you want. But even then, it's still very suttle and not in your face pink. I originally bought this shade for when I'm on on-shift for work. due to my position as an enforcement officer for conservation, I can't wear all of the nail polishes that I usually go for, aka, the bright pinks.I love this nail polish so much, I'm wearing it more even on my days off. Please don't ever discontinue this shade and if you do, please let us know, so the people who love the shade can stock up lol. It's classy, feminine and girly and the shade is perfect for everyday. Whether play or work.
