Essie Bordeaux with China Glaze Crystal Ball

Vampy red jelly. It's so pretty :)

Essie Bordeaux is a deep red jelly. It's from their core collection. I went looking for something else from Essie and ended up bringing this home as a substitute/dupe instead. It's a really pretty color. In the past I've had problems keeping Essie polish on for more than a day due to almost immediate chipping. Since I changed my base coat, I decided to do a test run and see if it may have made a difference. It did indeed! These pictures are after 8 days!! All I had was tip wear and it was minor and certainly to be expected after 8 days. I might actually add some more Essie to my collection now that it seems to last longer for me. Yay!
I added China Glaze Crystal Ball for the accent nail. Obviously I didn't have a problem with it lasting either. The base color matched really well to Bordeaux and the holographic particles added just the right amount of spice.
