FOR BEST RESULT
One or two coat will be enough. I would start with a base first so the colour will not stain your actual nails. A top coat would also be useful as well because this polish takes a long time to dry.
WHY YOU SHOULD SKIP THIS PRODUCT
Not sure if I’ve mentioned this before but I am not an Essie fan. If I have to choose, I would definitely take China Glaze and OPI over Essie. I always find that their polish are too sheer and a few coats are required. But I decided to pick up this colour because it reminded me a lot of the Chanel LE VERNIS 247 Khaki Vert. I’ve been obsessing over Khaki colours later and anything with a tint of grey. Thus, I couldn’t pass this nail polish up when I saw it in Shopper’s. I had really hoped that this would be a dupe for the Chanel polish, however, it’s not.
Sew Psyched dries darker than it is in the bottle and the swatches on the actual Essie website. The swatch that I made doesn’t even come close to the swatch of the Chanel polish. Now I think I need to get my hands on the actual Chanel polish. I’m so in love with anything grey for the Fall season. Another issue that I had with this polish is that it took a really long time to dry. Even though I had applied a quick dry top coat, when I woke up the next morning, there still scratches and dents on some of my nails. Overall, I’m very disappointed at the colour result. The polish looks more like an army green rather than a khaki green. I would only suggest buying this polish if you are looking for an army green.
On another note here are some of the polish that I had picked up for the Fall season. As you can probably tell, I’m loving anything with a hint of grey.
Product (2/5) – Very disappointed at the color result.
