I am absolutely in love with this Essie nail polish and I actually understand what the bloggers were talking about. I applied the Rimmel Blue Vogue which is a dark blue almost black blue. I just applied one coat and then after it dried up, I applied one coat of Essie Shine of the times. The picture doesn’t do justice to this nail polish but you could see lot of swatches in the blogs. I love the shine and I kept looking at my nails 😀 . I got lot of compliments for this nail polish as well 🙂 .
