Essie Bordeaux

Oh look, she bought another red-black nail polish. I'm nothing if not consistent! As soon as the darker, colder months roll through it is all about the darker colours on my nails, and one of my favourite shades to wear is that red-almost black colour. If you have been following my blog for awhile you will know I do own quite a few of those shades but one more won't hurt...right? This particular polish is called Essie Bordeaux and it is so beautiful!

We all know I am a massive Essie fan..I'm actually thinking of doing a favourite Essie polishes post? Let me know if you like the sound of that! I love the quality of the polishes, the brushes are just so amazing and they last a reasonable amount of time on my nails. This nail polish is no different, it goes on opaque in once coat - I normally do two because I like it to look slightly darker. You can see from the picture how it looks with 1, 2 and 3 coats. I have gotten about 4-5 days wearing this nail polish before it really does go past the point of looking acceptable.

I don't know if this polish purchase was all that justified but I have been getting my wear out of it! Will there be another Essie nail polish in this months favourites?...quite possibly!
