Nails Of The Day - Essie Splash Of Grenadine - REDONE

Today I've got a nails of the day for you and I have to say that this is with out a doubt one of the nicest colours that I own.

This is a shade from Essie's Resort Collection. You know how it is when you fall in love with a whole collection of something, which shades or products do you end up buying? I was finding it so hard to choose that I went for one of this mini sets that contained 4, 5ml bottles of polish. Mini sets are great for travel, and they are great for trying out new colours.

This colour is Splash Of Grenadine, and it's a beauty. Instead of being the bright red or pink that you would normally associate with Grenadine, it's a beautiful combination of pink and purple.

Despite the small size of the brush, this polish was a delight to paint, it was quite a decent consistency but you probably do need two coats to achieve the full effect.

The shade is quite hard to capture on film but it's perfect for when you want to add a little bit of happiness to your nails. The shade does deepen slightly with every coat you apply so you really have several colours in one.

I do love Essie as a brand, but like a lot of polish brands their range, is full of inconsistencies, some Essies are good, some to put it politely, in my experience, aren't so good. Splash Of Grenadine though, in my opinion, is a good Essie. Even in the mini size it was easy to paint, and it wore well, although the colour is unusual and hard to describe it isn't that hard to find similar colours on the market, personally though I'm a Splash Of Grenadine devotee, and I can definitely see myself buying the full size in the future x Are you a fan of Essie polishes?
