I have been eyeing this Essie nail polish for a while & I purchased it about a month ago. The consistency is like any other nail polish I've rated to be a 10 out of 10. ;) It is a mauvy-like colour with an undertone of purple/pink/brown. You need up to 2 coats for an opaque finish. It also looks like a nice settle sheer in 1 coat too! Definitely recommend it, if you can get your hands on it. Well done, Essie.
