Sexy Divide is a beautiful purple polish that can be worn during any season. It's a rich, blue-leaning purple (as opposed to a red-leaning purple like Bahama Mama) that stands out well against fair-colored skin. I wear it with a gel topcoat to promote longer wear.
Lovely dark purple. But this polish chipped so badly on my nails, the wear is really terrible with this one. Essie's Sexy Divide is a deep shade of royal purple with a shimmery, almost metallic finish. So dark that it borders on looking black sometimes, almost but not quite. It's one of those.But within one day I was seeing a lot of chips. And by day two, some of my nails were chipped completely bare. Similar shades that I prefer over this one are Zoya Belinda, Butter London HRH, and OPI Suzi & the 7 Dusseldorfs.Maybe if I took the time and experimented with different base coats and top coats I could get more life out of this polish. But I wouldn't buy this one again.
Sexy Divide is an Essie cult favourite and with good reason! This shade is a deep but bright purple, with some small shimmer particles providing a lovely glow from within. It applies easily, needing only two coats to reach full opacity. It doesn't apply streakily or patchily, and the formula does not run. It is a gorgeous colour, and would suit all skin tones. It really makes the nails pop! The formula dries to a shiny finish, and lasts about 5-6 days without chipping or tipwear slightly longer than my other Essie polishes. I really love this shade, it is one of my favourite Essies and one I would always recommend. This is a classic shade that every polish lover should have in their collection. One of my favourite shades of purple A+ from Essie.
Essie polishes get thinner and streakier each time I purchase. This one requires three coats to remotely reach a smooth and opaque finish! The deep grape color isn't particularly complex as the shimmer hinted in the bottle isn't visible on the nails BUT if you like a dark shade that stays true to color and doesn't read black indoors, it might be worth it to you,
Giving this a 4/5 for Price because Essie polishes are always so expensive, lol. Essie "Sexy Divide" is such a nice color! A very deep dark purple. I would say that the only problem I had with this polish is that the shimmer doesn't show up on your nail as well as in the bottle. The only difference is when you're in direct sunlight *or flash* where the shimmer pops out a lot more. Including that the brush was really thin, but then again, all regular Essie polish brushes are thin.I would definitely buy more if I ran out. Even the bottle looks beautiful!
