|Essie Case Study|
The second polish from the fall Brand New Bag collection. Formula was Essie-like. Which is to say, perfect. I am totally digging this color, because while it's fairly common in tubes of paint, I really haven't seen much like it in nail polish.
But of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone. After I got a bit of tip wear (from ironing!) I added on a layer of Urban Outfitters Dust:
Dust is a silver large and small glitter in a translucent blue base. I really like the glitter, but I'm not so crazy about how the blue looks over the umber. I'm interested to try this one over a pale grey or lavender. The color is more pronounced on my ring finger because I did two coats of Dust there, trying to cover up the worst of the tip wear!
