Good Morning Polished People!
Today I have a quick post to show you about Essie Jelly Apple. This isn’t a new polish, there’s a really good chance some of you already own it and there’s nothing crazy special about it but I just really like it. Let’s look at the pics, and then I’ll give you the breakdown.
Essie Jelly Apple:
Forgive the slightly messy cuticles. These are the nails you may have heard about if you follow me on Twitter because I fell asleep while I was painting them. I know, I know.. HOW does one fall asleep while painting their nails?! Well, I don’t exactly have the answer to that except that all of a sudden I woke up with a little polish on my fingers and my nails were painted and I really had almost NO recollection of painting them. I think I did them half asleep. There was polish all over my cuticles but I was too tired to clean them up so I waited till today after work to clean off anything that didn’t soak off in the shower. I don’t recommend polishing your nails when you’re THAT tired. However- ya gotta do what ya gotta do! 😉
Jelly Apple is a perfect candy apple red but the special thing about it is that, like the title suggests, it’s a jelly. That means it’s sheer and has depth when you see it in real life. The above pictures have about 4 coats of polish on my nails. This polish will make a great glitter/jelly sandwich one of these days 🙂
Being a jelly, this polish dries SUPER shiny. This picture is with no topcoat. It’s incredibly shiny in real life!It goes on smooth as can be and builds nicely to opacity. It’s the perfect consistency- not too thick, not too thin which is sometimes a problem I have with Essie polishes.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Yes, Please! If you don’t have this polish already, do yourself a favor and get it. I ordered it on Amazon for about 5 bucks and free shipping. It got here in 3 days and I was thrilled! I liked it so much I wore it plain and then I did some super cool nail art over it. Wait till you see 😉
