Back to the mani. . . I hastily slapped on Essie's A Splash of Grenadine yesterday as I rushed to leave for a long weekend in Philly. I managed to mess it up within 30 seconds of these pictures, and it wasn't exactly something to be proud of in the first place. The formula was that typical slightly thick jelly/creme that Essie is known for. I had a little trouble with the thickness due to my hasty application, but patience would remedy any formula issues. The color is great, even though it looks nothing like grenadine. Nope, not even a splash. It's more of a light purpley pink color, and I'm thinking it's work friendly (YAY!). This was 2 coats of polish + a coat of Seche Vite. Sorry, I know the pic is a bit dark.
