Rated 2 out of 5 by from Where is the shimmer? I love white polish and was happy to see this one with the shimmer. It was streaky and difficult to put on but that is not unusual for whites. You cannot see the shimmer and that is why I bought it. Add more shimmer please!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from looks great in bottle I was very excited about this color. First coat very streaky, second coat a bit better, technician had to put on 3 coats in order for this to look good. Same on toes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No The formula is hard to work with as it is thick and streaky. 3rd layer finally made it okay, but doesnt last long. The glitter isnt noticable at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Streaky & bumpy I just bought this today. The color is really pretty in the bottle. It's white and has lots of teeny tiny yet subtle shimmers. I went to the store wanting to buy a white polish and left with this because the shimmers looked so pretty. Like many of the others, I recognized that it was streaky, so I was ready to put on another coat, which is no problem. After the 2nd coat, I realized that a lot of little bumps started to appear as it was drying. I tried putting a third coat but it didn't fix the bumps. The tiny little bumps keep appearing as the polish dried, so I thought I did something wrong. I ended up repaint my nails twice (with 2 to 3 coats) in thinking that I did something wrong. I tried putting a couple layers of top coat, but the little bumps won't go away. Basically, when the polish is wet, it looks good (but you can barely see the shimmers), but when it dries, tiny bumps start to appear no matter what I do. My guess is that the bumps are a result of the shimmers? At this point, I've wasted more than a couple of hours trying to get this color to work for tomorrow, but I cannot get it to work. The bumps are making my nails look gross, so I'm giving up on this color. I typically use another brand, but I decided to try Essie and I'm kind of disappointed...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Private Weekend, two thumbs down :( I usually LOVE Essie polishes but this one disappointed. Definitely agree with the other bad reviews. Shimmery and gorgeous in the bottle, but uneven in application and dries bumpy and dull with none of the shimmer visible. Really wish it would have turned out how it looks in the bottle! Who let this polish make it to the shelves??

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bumpy! I purchased this polish for a fresh bright summer look. It did take three coats on most of the nails but the end result was very bumpy! The small shimmers in the bottle do not show up once the polish is on the nail. Not the smooth finish one would hope to have. If I had my receipt I would return it in a heartbeat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AWFULTEXTURE THE COLOR IS BEAUTIFUL, BUT THE TEXTURE ONCE IT DRIES IS AWFUL. IT LOOKS VERY UNEVEN. THE MORE COATS I APPLY THE WORSE IT LOOKS. I TRIED 3X TO APPLY THIS POLISH AND IT JUST LOOKS VERY BUMPY

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good but will try again I bought this color because it looked like it would have a little sparkle to it and not look like white out. But when I tried to paint my own nails that's exactly what happened it was hard to work with and looked like white out. My hope is that if I take it to the salon when I get a manicure that an expert hand will make it look good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So fresh, so classy! This weekend I went for a mani and wanted to just get a nice white but nothing chalky or white-out. So my nail lady recommended this one and I absolutely love it! When I first looked at the bottle I noticed the shimmer and got nervous because I didn't want glitter but once applied the shimmer isn't at all noticeable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from lovely product really like this product once a few coats are applied. usually have to use two as the first coat isn't opaque enough for me and it dries unevenly with the first application. very subtle shimmer is pretty and catches the light nicely

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this color a year ago and wore it all summer long. I'm wearing it again and I love it!! Best color for the summer and looks good on everyone!
