Essie - Carry On

Essie Carry On (from last year's fall collection), a deep, vampy, raisin purple. Formula was good, this is two coats. So glossy, I can literally see myself taking the picture in this. 



I'm afraid this will be a very quick post indeed, because...



I'll be back soon, though, with some brand new Pirate Polish lacquers! Enjoy your Sunday!

    1. Definitely a good autumn staple! With the leaves changing colour, I find myself reaching for more vampy shades!

    1. Believe it or not, this was taken before any topcoat went on! So yep, very glossy!

  7. Absolutely loving this shade! I can't believe it is so shiny as well, you might as well skip the top coat altogether. By the way, I think you have pro nail polish applying skills. I can never get my nail polish to look that neat!

    1. Thanks, Vivi! You're sweet. :D It took me a loooong time to get good enough at doing my nails that I didn't have to do extensive clean up. Like, at least a year of nail polish addiction! Definitely a skill gradually acquired. :P

    1. Ooh, I don't have that one! It must be sort of similar, though. I'll have to check out some swatches! :D
