Today is a SPECIAL day! It’s my 100th post! I had wanted to blog something special, but all creativity escapes me. For some reason, even though I’ve been getting a decent amount of sleep, I’m just exhausted. So, it’s a nail swatch…. that turned into a NOTD because it was so beautiful.
Essie Angora Cardi has been sitting in my untrieds for AT LEAST a year. I think it was from Fall of 2009 =\
For some reason when I look at the color.. I think Boysenberry lol Plummy purple! It’s really so pretty, I’m totally ashamed I’ve had it so long and never gave it a go. it’s my favorite out of the purple family.
I hear a lot of complaints about Essie polishes application wise… that they’re streaky, you need a million coats… but this one was just glorious. I only needed TWO coats and it covered like a dream. I also used Orly Top2Bottom as a base and, of course, Seche Vite as my fast dry top coat. The first pic has flash, the second pic has no flash (I hit some good light!)
And here’s some random bottle pics because I am loving this polish and it needs lotsa love 😉
Essie retails for $8.00 a bottle, and you can purchase at online retailers, Trade Secret, and I believe Ulta. And, as I’ve found, at random Nail Salons lol.
