Essie Leading Lady

Pin It
It occurred to me the other day that I feature so many Indie polishes but not mainstream brands! So for today I give you Essie's Leading Lady.

Leading Lady is part of the Essie Winter Collection 2012, which I have to say was a mix of odd colours! I suppose they were trying to be unique by releasing a bright turquoise and cobalt blue in winter :) I only picked up this one because it was like no other I already own.

Essie Leading Lady

Leading Lady is a deep red with fine red glitter. The glitter really glows, it's amazing! Application was pretty good, I think it was just a tad thick, but the coverage was great in only 2 coats. I only needed 1 layer of Seche Vite too, because it's not super textured.  LL is like a sophisticated older sister to China Glaze Ruby Pumps and all of the other ruby red glitters out there. I really love that the glitter is small but not micro fine or anything like most red glitters on the market.

From other people's swatches this looks to be a darker version of Essie Ruby Slippers, which I'd kill to own! Re-release that shizz already Essie!!!!!

Are you with me?
