Honest reviews

A little streaky but evens out.

Polish starts out streaky. Definitely needs 3 coats to fully cover. Dries to a nice, high shine – but if you frequently get “tip wear” on your nails, this shows it really badly. I would suggest a good top coat. Also, not sure why, but this picture is NOT the picture of the polish color – it’s a very deep, blood like red.

Typical red

I love the name of the color and you can’t go wrong with red, but this is not far off from a run of the mill red polish. It’s a great product and I love it, it’s just a color that can easily be found in a less expensive brand. The formula of the polish is good and it arrived quickly.

Highly Dissatisfied

The beautiful shade of pink that you see on your screen is not the color you will get. Headmistress is a dark red that looks almost black or dark brown on the nails. Total fail. Not what I expected. I feel like I did not get what I paid for. I emailed the seller, but they did not offer to help in any way. They just said it’s probably my computer screen, which I do not believe is true. Some sellers will offer to solve the problem, but not this one.

Excellent Fall Color

This color is amazing! It can be used as a fall season color. The color glides on the nail beautifully!

Wow!

Nice bold red! You are the Head Mistress when your wearing this, cool for day time & nights out. Its a strong solid red. Reminds me of a old skool Max Factor Fire Engine red. I don’t wear a lot of red polish and i am very glad i chose this as the red for my bag of Essie shades.

Such a pretty color!

Great for any time of the year. Applies well, opaque in two coats and no streaks, lumps, or air-bubbles. Wear-time is about average, no major chips for about four or five days. I get a ton of compliments whenever I wear this color!

Really darker

This color is really darker than I expected but still great. Just make sure you look it up in google prior to purchase. I thought it was going to be much lighter until I looked it up. I do not regret my decision of purchasing. Highly recommended.
