day two hundred and twenty three, essie wicked

eep. two essies in two days!? what is this world coming to!? i usually try to space 'em out but i feel i've been neglecting essie so i put two different ones on back to back. this is another 'essie to end all essie' polishes, called wicked. i could not tell you about the history of vamps but suffice to say...every brand has their signature vamp and essie's is called wicked. it's actually one of the vamps i like better, it just seems more dark burgundy and deep and hugs the border of almost black but never quite crosses it. so finally, a vamp that isn't black! making it a-okay in my book. it's very shiny...i wonder why most vamps are jelly? i guess because they just look better than cremes? who can say! i will say my one thing that bugs me when i put on vamps (and i'm sure it's just my bad skills) is that the base of my nails seems to hold the lighter colour and not darken as much. but i only notice it if i stare at my fingers (and i was staring at these pictures to make sure they would look nice!)

me too! it's definitely the best vamp in my collection as it's not black looking!

i've probably got aounrd 16-18 essie polishes and they're all amazing. almost all have already been featured on this blog but i am always on the lookout for more! they DO produce a lot of boring sheer pinks...but when they do something different they do it up right!

That is a gorgeous deep burgundy. I love this shade. I do have a load of vampy shades. This one is really pretty.
