Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely colour! This colour is absolutely lovely and the perfect nude imo. Not too pink, white or grey but a very nice light beige with a hint of pink and brown. Lovely for summer hands. Love the matte finish too. It needs three coats to be even but very light or dark shades usually do in my experience.Unfortunately the staying power is quite poor. It chips very fast without a topcoat and I don't want to apply the one I already own bc I really adore the matte finish. I am considering to buy a matte topcoat though - to prolong the wear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful formula This is my first time trying essie's cashmere polish. This is the worst essie nail polish I have ever tried. To reiterate what others have said, it is streaky, lacks opacity, and does not look seamless since it dries so quickly which means you have to disperse it on the nail fast. Unfortunately this also means you need to use more product so you will go through a bottle quickly versus an opaque polish which only requires one to two coats. You have to wear this without a topcoat to keep the cashmere finish but it will chip faster. What a pain because I love the color and finish. I returned it. You're better off just buying a matte topcoat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful coverage Tried using this a few times. After multiple layers I can't get it to fully cover. Disappointed :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I love the colour but was really disappointed with the end result. I couldn't get it even or smooth, this is the first time I've ever had this problem with an Essie polish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chipped I've only had this color for maybe a week and have only used it once. Within a few hours of wearing it, the polish chipped almost completely off. Once I started using this brand I was hooked and have never switched. Nor have I ever had this problem with a brand new polish from Essie. I love the color and the finish, but the quality was very poor. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too streaky! I saw this color and knew right away I wanted to buy it. But I just tried it, and it is horrible! The color is pretty, but it dries with all streaks! When I applied a second coat to smooth it out, that dried streaky TOO. I'm very disappointed in this color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great with a topcoat I fell in love with this colour instantly. It's just perfect for my skintone, and I have various similar nudes, but somehow they all seem too grey, or too brown, or too pink when compared with "Wrap me up".I really love how it applies, and it dries rather fast. Many people wrote that it chips the next day, but to tell you the truth I've never worn it without a topcoat. It kills the cashmere effect, sure, but it's a solid habit of mine and I can't leave polish un-topped.With a topcoat it wears amazingly, much more durable then most cremes I have. And it's a perfect base for nail art and stamping due to matt finish. The manicure in the picture lasted 4 days in perfect shape (usually any polish chips on me on day 2-3).One of my favourite polishes for sure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Eh. . . you might want to stay away from this one. I really hate to write a bad review but I feel that it would be best to share my experience so that the chemists who work with this product can perhaps improve upon its formula. Maybe? At any rate, the color itself is lovely. However, the first thing I noticed was that it went on streaky. I took it off. Shook the polish up more, tried again. Still streaky. Hmmm. The other, more annoying issue was that the polish flaked off immediately. There isn't any flexibility to the polish, so any natural movement of the nail or bending, it came off. Now I am not really hard on my nails, I wasn't replanting my flowerbeds or anything. Just normal stuff like washing hair. At any rate, my humble recommendation is that Essie try to reformulate the polish to have a little more flexibility and more opacity.
