In spite of the chips, I love it. WhatOneGirlLoves ·

When I use this polish it barely lasts two days, but I just love the coppery shade so much that it does not matter. The chipping issue is popular with chrome like metallics like this one...just love it so much!

Formula color change? JuliaRae816 ·
Recommended Not Recommended

I believe there was a formula change because the fiji I remember was much more white tinted than pink tinted. I didn't realize when buying it that it was pinker because there was nothing to compare it to, but I could instantly tell when I put it on my nails. I held the bottle up next to an older one and they were totally different. If I wanted a different color, I would just buy a different shade. I wanted fiji because it used to have the perfect whiteish pink hue. I just dont understand why Essie would change a color that already existed, why wouldnt they just make a polish and name for it instead of ruining a cult classic? So i'm upset I bought this polish and wish I could hunt down the old formula.

Miss the old shade #112 of Mademoiselle Ella0414 ·
Recommended Not Recommended

I’ve used Mademoiselle #112 for years. Such a sheer, nude polish with just a hint of pink. The new Mademoiselle is much more opaque. ☹️


1. Hi there! We want to understand what you’re seeing in your color just as much as you do. The color ‘mademoiselle’ should be a classic sheer pink. If you would like to speak to us directly about your recent purchase, give us a call @ 866-313-7845

Great color, awful coverage! New to Essie ·
Recommended Not Recommended

I put 5 layers on to get rid of streaks and it started chipping the next day. Waste of time.

Not what i was expectint AnoukM ·
Recommended Not Recommended

I honestly was hoping for this polish to be a little less sheer. I initially bought it because of other people’s reviews, but when i’m wearing it it looks really different to their pictures (more sheer, you keep seeing my natural nail even after 3 coats). It’s still a pretty and neutral polish but it’s just not what i was hoping for.


Hi there AnoukM! We wish you could see the results you were hoping for with the color ‘vanity fairest’. This color should be a sheer pastel pink polish with subtle iridescence. But we appreciate knowing you would like something similar with a bit more pigment.

Formula Problem Want to Love Essie again ·
Recommended Not Recommended

I am obsessed with Essie, that’s all I have bought since 10 years ago. I have tried Tuck it in my Tux and few others and decided Marshmallow has the best hue!!!! I love the color, not too white not pink, just right. The formula however is horrible. The first couple of times after opening the bottle is great except in order not to get streaks you have to apply 3 coats. After a few days of opening the bottle, the formula gets thick and clumpy and not usable!!! Also, the mandatory 3 layers make the nail polish to peel off in a day or two because it’s simply two thick and rubber feel like almost. Please note this is a constructive review for Essie, I am asking you to please change this formula since I love your products. I would love others to enjoy this wonderful nail polish but at this stage I am not able to use this color anymore. I don’t like anything with sparkle or shine and neither one of your colors mimic marshmallows. The open bottles show the clumps on top. Unfortunately my video would not upload. Please helps and fix this formula. I have wasted so much money on this nail polish tossing bottles after bottles!!!


Hi there! We wish you could see the all the results you were hoping for with the color ‘marshmallow’. This color is a cloudy sheer white lacquer and it looks like you prefer a more opaque color. Yes, 3 coats of color is too many and will not stay on the nail easily. An opaque color like ‘blanc’ or ‘first fitting’ would work better in 2 coats for this look. However, we wish we could understand why your bottles thicken up like this. If you would like to speak to us directly about your recent purchase, give us a call @ 866-313-7845

day two penny talk, fav Cait99polish ·
Recommended Not Recommended

I bought this yesterday and had to give it a try. my nails usually show texture through metallics so I added penny talk over the color I had already been wearing. it is showing some small cracks at the nail edge but is holding up well. the bottle showed some swirls of silver but the polish went on solid in one coat.

I love Essie. The brush is perfect. My manicure lasts fourteen days. I have to take off because nails have grown. My manicure seriously used to last hours before chipping. It’s another Essie product. Not a to or base coat.
