Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Obvious Difference!!! I just bought this yesterday because I wanted to know how much better this was to the regular nail polish, being that I have quite the collection of Essie polishes & other products including the Gel Setter top coat. BUT this polish is awesome! Really looks and feels like a thinner version of a gel mani! LOVE LOVE LOVE the rounded brush! It really makes a difference when applying (I think Essie should make all their polishes with this brush!) Anyway it's only been day one with the polish but I am sure loving it! Even if it's on the pricey side it's worth it and a great splurge!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it but... I bought this color a few days ago. I tried the color out and I love it, it was very smooth and dried surprisingly fast for a polish. It was very pigmented, which is lovely in a polish except it has stained my nails a tint of dark pink. I understand that most reds will do this but this is far more stained than the others. It last for my about 3 days, I am constantly typing, writing, and filing stuff for my job and this polish stayed well except when ever it chipped a little it would leave a hang and then the hanging part would get pulled at and a hold large chunk would come off. So after 3 days I had so ratchet looking nails. Essie I love ya but I think u could do better with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, love it, love it ... Did I mention, I loved it? Full-disclosure, I got a sample from Pinch me and I am so pleased I did! It applies smoothly and dries quickly and the top coat seal it all in with a mega shine. I got many compliments on my nails and they didn't chip the moment I did dishes. My nails grow really fast and so it was the growth that made my manicure last only about a week. A beautiful, chip resistant manicure at home? Heck yeah!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm impresssed. My girlfriend has a beauty blog ( and asked me to try out the Essie 'Rock the Runway' nail polish, since I've been helping test all the nail polishes for a second opinion. Of all the polishes I've tried, this went on so smoothly. The 1st coat dried quickly, as did the 2nd. The top coat dried even faster! It was all set and dry before I could even mess it up! The BEST part about this 2-step polish is that the top coat didn't remove the polish or mess up the polish like other top coats I've tried. It is super shiny and looks great, dare I say even professional?? (and I'm by far not the best nail polisher). I'm only a couple chip-free days into it, but I would DEFINITELY buy/use/recommend even if it didn't last the touted "up to 14 days." Well done Essie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I was part of a trial to try this out. I normally don't polish my nails because I am so bad at it and get it all over. With this product that did not happen! It was easy to use, dried super fast so I did not get smudges while doing the other nails! It lasted almost 2 weeks before it started chipping, and I type all day for my job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lasted, but.... I was a part of a trial. I love that the product lasted more than other similar types, however:1. It was way too thick causing loads of bubbles,2. the twisted bottle and especially the twisted wand made it very difficult to get the right amount of polish on the brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Nail Polish I received a sample of this polish. The color was a corally pink. It went on so smooth, you only needed to apply one coat. Then you add the top shine and it was dry in 5 minutes. To remove you add just a little more pressure. I am definitely a fan of this polish!
