Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great for a Long Time! I bought this polish a little over a year ago and it is still very fresh and easy to apply. It also stays opaque, doesn’t thin out and doesn’t get clumpy(as most nail polishes do) or thick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Coat Black!!! I bought this recently and oh my god it is amazing!! It goes on so smoothly and doesn’t stain your skin! It’s deep black in ONE coat! Definitely my favourite black plush EVER!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing product! I just painted my nails an hour ago with this nail polish and my nails are already chipped! It doesn't stay on your nails AT ALL! I am so disappointed because Essie nail polishes aren't exactly cheap, but I prefer the black nail polish from the Colorama line from Maybelline New York any time! Just something to think about. I'm actually quite amazed that some people like this nail polish because it's really rubbish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one coat wonder. extremely opaque. If you are a nail polish addict, I'm assuming that you've heard of the indie nail polish brand "Cirque Colors." they have a one coat wonder black crème polish, and "licorice" is an obvious rival. Very amazing, long lasting, and opaque. Fab gurl.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed This was my first ever Essie polish purchase and maybe my expectations were too high. I will say that the color range (availability) is awesome and this particular shade of black is very deep. I loved that, however, it chipped right after drying on TWO fingers before I could even apply a top coat. I painted over it again and it chipped AGAIN before all the fingers dried. Unfortunately I will never buy this again. Chipping at two coats is quite a disappointment and for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hella pigmented it's really dark, and simply just the pure black that i wanted.only one coat required and take a normal amount of time to's say it lasts 2 1/2 days before it starts chipping, but i don't really care about how long it lasts if i'm honest, just reapply!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A rich creamy black I got this as part of a VoxBox from Influenster and I was impressed by the richness of the black. It was a very creamy colour, that lasted a long time. Paired well with other colours for a fun look. Very dramatic. Definitely will be a staple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glamorous not Goth I have never worn black nail polish before because I have very pale skin and I was surprised when I tried Licorice by Essie. It's dark, but it doesn't look dangerous or goth, it's actually kind of glamorous and elegant. I paired it with one nail of a different colour - Penny Talk which is a gold-ish colour and I think it was just gorgeous. No need for two coats, one is enough as long as it goes on evenly.
