Essie First Dance

I take back my complaining about how SH Wine Not photographed; this was the ultimate worst. From the Essie Wedding 2011 Collection, First Dance is one of my top three reds.  After three coats (which was only necessary because I dinged a nail while wet and like to keep everything uniform), this red still remains jelly-ish without feeling see-through.  However, it took me forever to photograph this without it looking transparent, cherry in color, and cheap.  It also somehow brought a lot of red out in my skin that just looked like I had applied this sloppily.  I finagled my camera settings, and these are the closest I can get.

Please excuse the torn cuticle on my middle finger.  It's been particularly unruly.


So I woke up this morning and the sun was actually out (something that hasn't happened in NYC for a couple of days now).  That coupled with a better light in my kitchen, I was finally able to get a good shot of First Dance.  While the shine is a bit dulled, which always seems to happen on Day 2 of a wear, this color is more accurate than the bright cherry is appeared in the first pictures.
