Essie – ‘Leading Lady’ Swatches & Review

Are you in the mood for a sparkly, gorgeous red shimmer nail polish? Essie’s Leading Lady is the most gorgeous red that I have ever seen. It’s so pretty! I purchased this color just about weeks ago, but it already has become one of my favorites.

Although I own a couple of other reds, his is really an outstanding color while not being too obvious. Leading Lady is a fabulous raspberry jelly filled with fuchsia and red micro glitters. Not to even mention the fabulous name of it, Leading Lady. 
Originally this shade is from Essie’s Winter 2012 Collection, but it just caught my eyes 3 weeks ago. Just in time before Christmas, so it probably wouldn’t surprise you what nail polish I’ve worn while rocking around the Christmas Tree… and the days after Christmas… during New Year’s Eve and (why not also on) New Year’s Day… that weekend after… and even today.

Talking about a nail polish addict….

The formula of Leading Lady is just as lovely as the color. It’s a little bit thicker than the average nail polish, but it still dries quickly and the coverage is amazing. One coat is already enough, but for full coverage use 2 coats. The only thing that bothers me (sorry Essie!) is that once it has dried, the color turns out to be a little dull. A simple solution for this problem is using a top coat. No big deal! And the best thing about this nail polish? The wear is incredible! It stays on for days.

Definitely going to repurchased this nail polish when needed. Great formula, beautiful shade and… makes me feel like a ‘Leading Lady’.
