I LOVE the Essie nail polishes. I actually think this is my favorite brand. I love the creamy formula, the exact colors, the staying power.
Angora Cardi is quite unusual. This is a smoky-purple tone, with a touch of red. I applied 2 coats over the Seche Clear base coat and used Seche Vite as a top coat/fast dryer. The creamy formula was very easy to use, no stripes, the brush takes just the right amount of polish.
I really like the way it looks, a perfect fall color, for those who had enough of gray-taupe tones..
I can not say how long this will last, but the ESSIE polishes usually last 6-7 days on my nails.
By the way, the red color you see on the skin is some rest-overs from the Chanel nail polish I was wearing before.
