I didn't think Bordeaux would be this amazing. I'd heard good things, but in the end I figured, hey, it's just another red polish.
But actually, it's not. It's an unusually awesome red lacquer with a streak-free jelly finish. It has a fantastic formula, and it's really the perfect deep wine-coloured red. Behold!
Glossy red perfection in two coats. I'm sorry it took me this long to give Essie Bordeaux a try! I'm really happy with this red, and I think it's the perfect one for my skin tone. Reds can be tricky that way, sometimes clashing with the undertones in your skin... but I think this one is great.
Have you tried this polish? Are there any other fantastic reds you would recommend?
