It is the weekend finally! And funnily enough, it has become a routine for me to change my nail paints over the weekend. The colour I wore this weekend is called Bordeaux from Essie! I have been lusting over this colour for so long, one of my favorite bloggers from Norway had this colour up on her instagram and I really wanted it to wear it this fall. Luckily for me, thursday was Ashtmi and mummy dearest, decided to present this colour to me along with another few (which I shall review later for you lovelies).

My Experience with Essie Nail Lacquer in Bordeaux:
I was so excited to see the cute white and glass packaging in my Ashtmi present bag on thursday and I knew right there, that once the mayhem of the week and classes would fade away, I would be applying this colour on my nails.
The packaging is Essie’s standard packaging, I have previously always raved about their packaging. I find Essie’s packaging so classic and cute! Their bottles always seem to stand out as compared to the other bottles that lie on my dressing table. As for the brush applicator, it is definitely my favourite applicator out of all nail polishes I have tried so far, I would even rate it better than Chanel. Yes, it is that great!
As for the colour, it is a deep oxblood red colour. It makes my nails look really sophisticated and is actually perfect for the fall/ winter seasons.
The constancy and texture of this nail paint, like all other Essie Nail paint formulas is absolutely delightful. It is not too thick, not too thin, it is just right. It does not come on streaky, there are no bubbles when you apply it on your nails and it is definitely not gory on application. Moreover, it glides so smoothly on the nails. The last weekend I wore a nail paint from another brand and was struggling to apply it on my nails, I think I literally spent 11 in the morning to 7 in the evening (in intervals) removing and reapplying nails. However, with this or any other Essie Nail Lacquers, I apply it and I am good to go! I credit their formula for sure! Moreover, you just need 2 coats to get a fully opaque colour on your nails.
Also, it dries really quickly and does not smudge when I apply it. I can be typing and completing assignments within 10 minutes of applying it. However, as of now I am unable to tell you about its staying power if I am honest, but I have a definite feeling it is going to have a really long staying power, just like all the other Essie Nail paints have.
Overall I am loving this nail paint, I was super excited to try this nail paint and it definitely has lived up to my expectations. It looks absolutely lovely on short nails and it will also compliment darker skin tones.
