Essie Nail Polish Spam - Wrapped In Rubies, Dive Bar, Over The Edge, Mochacino
Ughh! I had to work today, while a lot of people were still off. I have some Essie swatches for you. I have owned these polishes for quite some time now and finally got around to making swatches....
Wrapped in Rubies is a shimmery/metallic red with a bronzy/gold shimmer in it. Formula wasn't too thick or too thin and applies rather smoothly. The brush strokes are noticeable but if you apply carefully, they won't look too bad. Opaque in two coats.
Dive Bar is a dark blue base with a hint of teal shimmers. It's a little sheer, streaky, and patchy at first but with three coats, the color and application looks pretty even. I love how it's dark yet not black and has a lovely teal shimmer.
Over The Edge is a dark charcoal grey with silver, teal, and pink shimmers. This is also on the sheer side and applied streaky. It needed 3 coats for opacity and even color distribution.
Mochacino is a cool toned brownish taupe with silver shimmers running through it. There's also a very subtle pink and teal shimmers in it but not noticeable on the nail. It's what I call a chic classy neutral polish. The formula is on the thin side but applies nicely and looks opaque in 3 coats.
