Essie’s Over the Edge, aka Over the Top, is a charcoal base with tiny silver, teal, and blue sparkles (there might even be a bit of purple in there). Unless your nails are a few inches from your face, though, it just looks like metallic dark grey. It looks beautiful either way, and it’s a nice twist on black. The shimmer makes Over the Edge softer than black, and maybe a little easier to wear. It’s my go-to polish when I want to add a little bit of edge – it’s like putting on a pair of biker boots.
It is a bit thin, but builds up nicely – plus thin coats don’t chip as much, so that’s fine with me.
This is three coats with Essie Good to Go.
I have absolutely nothing like it, but found a good swatch comparison at the bottom of this post. It looks pretty close to Chanel Steel and Dior Vernis NY57th.
