Since they use Essie nail polish at the nail salon I go to (along with OPI and China Glaze), I figured it was a higher quality than most drugstore nail polish. They have a great selection of gorgeous colors. Essie claims to have chip-resistant formula. It is $8.00 at Walgreens, which is pricier than most brands sold there. This color is called "Jamaica Me Crazy", which is a beautiful dark pinkish/ purple with a hint of shimmer. The application was smooth and easy, which I was very happy about because I've had some disasters with overly clumpy nail polish. Even one coat of this polish took a pretty long time to dry. When I bumped one nail after 10 minutes it dented the polish and I had to redo it. After 2 days, one nail has already chipped. Overall, this polish is beautiful and I love the color and the ease of application, but it doesn't have the staying power that I had hoped for. It stays on longer than some of the cheaper nail polishes I've tried (Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail polish was especially bad), but not as long as OPI or China Glaze. I will probably still buy Essie nail polish for pedicures because it stays longer on toes than fingers, or in a lighter color so that chips are less noticeable.
