Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Chic!!! This deep rich color made me feel so chic and elegant, but at the same time I like that remember me the fall warm tones and the Cherry pie filling. Always welcoming, I do live that I can only use one coat and it will last 2 weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing color This color is definitely one of the best colors that essie has. It's great for the fall season and also if you just want to add one coat so that it's not to dark. It looks great with a gloss or a matte coat for a unique look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning color! I got this color as a mini, but I will definitely be buying the full bottle soon! When you put this color on, you instantly feel chic and sophisticated. It is the perfect color for both work or special occasions. The color has the same classic feel as a red, but without being cliche (like red polish sometimes is). In addition, it has the added bonus of a great formula that goes on smoothly. I cannot recommend this polish enough! It should be a staple in any collection.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shiny & sexy This, by far, is my most favorite shade since I'd started using ESSIE products a year ago. It's one of the most easiest shades to apply. I prefer 3 coats to help achieve that dark & glossy look.Every time I wear this shade I kept help but feel glamorous. It makes me want to put on a pair of pointed toe heels and go out for a night on the town!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colors, cute names, long lasting. Essie delivers time and time again. Only the best for my nails!!I chose this color for the name, but fell in love with he shade immediately. Looks great on my fair skin and my mom's darker, olive skin tone. It is the perfect, plum-meets-wine shade for the fall months. So glad I made this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Fall Color! I personally love this color! It's a dark, rich plum color, I think it's beautiful for fall/winter because it's dark but not as harsh as black or any other dark nail polish. I always get tons of compliments when I wear it, I've been using this color for the past two fall/winter seasons & I'm still obsessed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE, LOVE, LOVE As soon as the calendar turned to October I couldn't wait to put on Bahama Mama. I've worn this color through most of the Fall and Winter for the last 2 years. Fabulous color and great formula. I always get compliments when I wear this color. I have two backup bottles in my linen closet just in case...!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, perfect shade! I bought this about a month ago, and let me just say its an amazing dark color that still shows its true color! I do not regret it one bit (never regret buying Essie). I wore to several different events and I always get asked and complimented for it! Great choice to add to the collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomely Great As I was searching for some polishes for the fall time , I stumbled across Essie's Bahama Mama. This polish caught my eye and it just screams for the fall and winter time. It is a deep burgundy colour with an excellent formula . The application is smooth and is opaque in two coats !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite! This is my go to color. doesn't matter the occasion or the season. It's my favorite color, I've restocked twice ready. I can't get tired of it. It's a dark plum but not too a dark shade you can simple apply one coat and it's good and looks great! Definitely would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favs I have been using Bahama Mama for over a year now, and absolutely love it for Fall & Winter! This is easily one of my favorites from Essie & I wear it constantly in the two season mentioned. I only need 2 coats & it's a perfect plum color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich, gorgeous color! This color has uplifted me from glum to happy. It is the perfect color for the darker months as it has such a wonderful warm, rich color that really brightens the dark days. Even the name is uplifting!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great color! I bought this shade over spring break cause I love the color and I thought the name went with spring break theme relaxation time. This shade was great for my toes considering I love to wear sandals!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Falling" in love I bought this polish about a year ago and it's the most wonderful color for fall. I love wearing it with one of my burgundy-reddish-purple sweater. It certainly gives me a more vampy fall look.
