I'm not sure what Essie were thinking with this one. Actually, I'll be fair. Back in 2007 when this one came out, nude polishes were just starting out, we wore pinks and pearls and the few new nudes on the market were like this, a yellow beige. Fast forward 9 years and this is dated. Its a yellowy caramel nude, not for everyone's skin tone and with all the different types of nudes out there on the market these days, its dated. So the colour, unless you want a yellowish caramel sorta colour, you may want to pass on this one.Formula three thin coats, streaky, prone to balding if you overwork it, difficult to apply, its the older type of Essie, definitely not a one coater and definitely for those who will accept it that its a finicky thing.However, my bottle probably is 9 years old now and the formula is probably the same as it was when it first appeared on the market. None of this 'throw out your polish after 12 months' rubbish with this baby. So not my favourite nude. Not the most flattering colour on me. Difficult polish to work with. Its a nail polish historical anomaly. Probably something you may want to pass on.
