Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Fall I bought this polish color early September and I've had it on ever since! It's the perfect color for fall and looks good on every skin tone. I've recommended it about 100 times and everytime someone else tries it, they love it as much as I do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My all time favorite polish! This is definitely one of my all time favorite nail polishes. Essie's Bahama Mama is my go-to for the fall and winter seasons. Its a gorgeous burgundy shade that will compliment any skin tone and color. Its a classic color that is a staple my collection. The formula is excellent as always with Essie, and its long wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ahhh-mazing! I bought this last Fall and I am seriously in love! You can definitely get away with one coat AND it lasted about two weeks on my nails. Beautiful color on all skin tones and an awesome ANYTIME color! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection for Fall! This color is perfection for the fall and winter especially with browns, taupes, greys, dark blues and other jewel tones and oh my with the holiday season it just brings out the festive spirit in ya! I bought this color with high hopes and it did not disappoint one bit! Its medium consistency with 2 coats to full opacity. Its has a semi-matte finish so it still has a little shine to it without needing a top coat if you in a hurry! It dries within 5-10 min of each coat and is not streaky whatsoever, very smith going on! Love Love this color!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Winter Plum! Bahama Mama is a deep, rich, warm plum. Perfecr for fall. Oxidizes great... appears deeper as the days go on and continues to have that gorgeous plum red tone. Love this color!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fall color! Great fall color - think wine/burgundy. Deceiving bottle b/c color looks lighter & pinker. And the name sounds summery... But def a great Fall pick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FALL MUST HAVE I happened across this colour while browsing for something new at the store a few weeks ago. With so many Essie colours you tend to get overwhelmed and can miss great colours simply by how many are available. I was actually looking for a brown and considering purchasing Wicked when I noticed this polish sitting next to it.When I picked up this gorgeous plum colour I knew that it was going to be my go to colour for fall and winter. It's a deep and rich plum that evokes strong memories of vibrant fall days and cold winter nights. It really makes you itch to put on a cozy black sweater with long sleeves that go over your palms.As for the formula, I sometimes have issues with Essie polishes. The formulas sometimes tend to run on the streaky side or the overly thick side. I found that Bahama Mama does lean more towards the streaky/thin side of formulas, but I solved that with one coat of polish, a coat of matte top coat, and then another coat of Bahama Mama! It turned out beautifully!Since purchasing it, I have done my nails twice in the colour. It did wear a bit at the tips of my nails, but that is normal with all polishes. I simply repainted my nails and had them looking perfectly fresh again.I LOVE this colour and will definitely be wearing it on repeat for the next few months!
