For this week, I decided to go with a classic red nail. I used Essie nail polish in the color Jump In My Jumpsuit. I’m not going to lie, I was a bit apprehensive about using this color. One: Although Essie nail polish has some nice colors, in the past I’ve always found their nail polish formula to be streaky, so I was very cautious on how my manicure would turn out. Two: This nail polish is more than a year old, this was part of the 2014 holiday collection I believe, so I thought that this color would be yucky like other nail polish brands I’ve had.
I was, gladly, proven wrong. This color, although goopy at times, applied nicely. I used two coats of nail polish, I always wait about 20 minutes between nail coats (it’s out of habit) but they were more than dry before then. To give it a nice shine, I used my Sally Hansen top coat, my favorite, to keep it from chipping, making them stronger, and to give my nails a nice shine throughout the week.
I love this color and I love a good red nail. What’s your favorite red nail polish?
