Essie Over The Edge Swatches & Review

Happy Friday!,

I hope that this post is finding you well. Any plans for this weekend? I don't have any besides getting myself back in routine as my little will be returning back to school next week. Well you've heard me say this before, heck I'm sure you've heard other bloggers or polish enthusiasts say this as well. Essie polishes can be so hit or miss. How was this one? Keep on reading to find out!

Essie Over The Edge

Essie Over The Edge

Over The Edge is a gunmetal polish from the 2007 Winter Collection. Boy was this one a miss for me. The formula had a sheer application and was very thin. I also found that this polish took longer than I would have liked to dry and even when it was dry I experienced pulling in between coats which you could see on my index finger. Too bad because I actually liked this colour too! Shown is three thin coats with a glossy top coat.

  2. I always want to like Essie more but they are usually a miss for me, formula and color wise.

  3. Awe that's unfortunate. Some thing are great for me and others just aren't.

  4. I know right. I'm going to have to take a look and see if I find that one. Thanks!

  5. You hit the nail on the head there for sure--Essie and I have a love-hate relationship because of its inconsistent formula. It drives me nuts. Some polishes are perfect and then others not so much. This sounds like my experience with Essie Turqs and Caicos (tons of layers and mucho drying time). However, the end result on this gunmetal one is beautiful! It's really pretty with your skin tone.

  6. That is a beautiful gunmetal gray. I love metallic finishes. I find Essie to be hit and miss too and not consistent. Some are great formulas, but a good deal more are not so much and they tend to be chippy.

  7. It really is beautiful which is why I was a bit disappointed when I swatched it and found out the formula was a miss for me :(. Yeah they do have a tendency to be chippy.

    Woman, stop with the older polishes we can't get anymore! haha However, I'm glad to hear the formula was a miss. Every time I try Essie the formula is utter crap. Makes me feel better about not having this beautiful color.

  11. I like Essie usually, but this color isn't for me. Looks great on you though!

  12. What a bummer. Maybe crack the lid and let it thicken? I bet you could turn it into a stamping polish that way.

  13. That is such a beautiful edgy shade, it's a shame the formula was off! I think of all the mainstream brands I own the least Essie polishes in my collection.

  18. It sucks about this one being a miss because the colour is actually gorgeous. I am pretty sure I had this one in my wishlist and I think I will blacklist it and find a dupe instead!

  19. That is exactly how I feel about this polish. Let me know if you do happen to find a dupe for this!

    This looks really good on you, so it's a shame it wasn't a better formula x
