best black out there


the only black nail polish i have found that doesnt need 4 coats of colour to look okay. great coverage after 2 coats and lasts almost 2 weeks with a good top coat

a nice black but you have to layer it a bit
  1. best black out there


    the only black nail polish i have found that doesnt need 4 coats of colour to look okay. great coverage after 2 coats and lasts almost 2 weeks with a good top coat
  2. 2 Layers


    Basic black polish - needs 2 layers for me to be comfortable with the coverage. Chips eventually but obviously depends on how you use your hands every day.
  3. Great intense colour


    I love the intensity of the black colour, and it lasted me at least 12 days before I had to reapply
  4. My go to black


    This is my go to black polish. I love it for a sophisticated look.. I only need two coats for solid coverage. I prefer Essie as it chips less than others.
  5. doesn't chip


    when in lockdown couldn't go for nails this is a life saver item. it does not chip at all. totally comfortable to wear and i love my nails with this color on it. rich and true black,
  6. a very intense shiny black


    verified purchaser
    it is such a great deep black colour that has optimal shine and i love this. dries super quickly. i am so happy to have the correct black shade in my life.
  7. Black can never go wrong


    verified purchaser
    can you ever go wrong wearing black? This formula is great, dries fast, doesn’t chip for days, I use to get my nails dont fortnightly but since finding Essie I haven’t stepped foot in a nails salon! Worth it!
  8. Not bad


    I like the colour but it is a bit more on the sheer side. Two to three coats are needed to get an even, nice colour. It lasts for a week though.
  9. Opaque on first coat


    This is one of the best black polish I've tried. I prefer 2 coats to eliminate premature chipping but the opacity on the first coat is impressive. Essie makes some of my favorite shaped wide style brushes too for quick and precise application. This polish is not too thick or too runny either so it doesn't pool much like other blacks tend to.
  10. Great


    Great black shade and easy to apply
  11. ok


    a nice black but you have to layer it a bit
  12. Have to layer a lot to get the ideal cover


    Not sure I'd buy this again. I have to layer it a lot to get the ideal thickness and colour.
  13. Perfect for a grungy nail that's not jet black


    It's a dark shade, not jet black. I like buying Essie nail colours because they're affordable and high quality, and last well when on.
  14. Versatile colour, easy to apply and lasts


    Black is my go to winter nail colour and this is a great formula that lasts well. Very comparable to OPI and slightly cheaper price point. Can get away with one coat but I would recommend two for longevity.
  15. Not black but a dark colour


    I wouldn't say this is black - but a very dark navy kind of colour! Its very pigmented and you can get away with just one swipe across your nails which is great! Lasting power is good too, I find that i can go through the week with fresh nails that don't need touchups, esp if you follow through with a top coat.
  16. perfect


    this was perfect for my emo phase
  17. Yum is all!

    This colour is so pure in pigment & the brush is a great shape for application, only one coat needed. Quick dry & longer lasting than other eco polishes
  18. Fantastic


    The best black. I love essie’s formula, it lasts forever on me. It is thin, so it is easy to control and doesn’t get gloopy. Builds to an opaque, shiny black.
  19. Great black


    Love essie and this beautiful black nail polish
  20. Bold


    This is a great bold colour. This polish stays on forever and doesn't chip easily. Great quality.
  21. Great


    Love Essie nail polishes, I've used them for years! They last forever (especially with a top coat) and such a pretty colour, suits so many skin colours and looks great with a tan!
  22. gorgeous colours


    I bought this color while searching for the elusive 1 coat black. Needless to say I had to search no more! This is a GORGEOUS, 1 coat black polish perfect for nails of any length and any skin tone. Essie has created what will surely become another one of their signature colors.
  23. Favourite black nail polish


    This is my go-to black nail polish. Application is even, the polish is fast drying and lasts up to 2 weeks without chipping for me.
  24. Favourite cruelty free nail varnish


    This is by far my favourite cruelty free varnish brand and black is always a classic. The brush in essie varnishes is great and usually means minimal coats with accurate application.
  25. great dark polish


    absolutely love Essie nail polish and have used them for years! lasts forever (especially with the gel top coat) and such a great dark colour
