playing koi is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from still pretty but... Gorgeously shiny and has a gel-like texture (kinda seems between a gel and cream). It took 3 coats to get to opacity (if I had a better hand I could do 2, which would be more gel-like). It it MUCH darker than pictured and even than in the bottle. It's a beautiful dark rust, and is pretty brown. I do wish it were a bit more orangey and painted as pictured. Still a great color, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Autumn I love this color for fall. It's a beautiful shade. I have read a few reviews that mentioned it takes 3 coats to get to opacity. Have patience. I have been an Essie user for years and I have to say I almost like the polish better when it is this consistency when first opened. Once the air hits the open bottle, the polish seems to gain better coverage when you next use it, and it usually ends up that you can use the color all the way to the end of the bottle, rather than using half of it and then having polish so thick it's hard to apply because it's gloppy. Each separate application will become more opaque. Love Essie!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely color for the fall! Saw this color in an ad and had to get my hands on it! Fell in love with the color! The only downfall was that it took 3 GOOD coats for the color to reach the solid rusty brown color. 1-2 coats left it very streaky. Not sure if it was just my bottle, my application skills, etc. Still an awesome color though. Used essie's first base coat and the gel setter top coat with it :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful color Love this polish except for the fact that it took three coats. I never have had to use three coats in any other polish. Hope it doesn't make it chip more easily
