Essie – First Dance

Pure red. One of the most beautiful reds you can have on your nails! Such a gorgeous colour! It covers in one coat, even though I’ve done two coats for the pictures this time, just to be sure… I’ve applied a top coat as well, to dry it fast using my favorite top coat China Glaze Fast Forward. I think I’ve read First Dance should have been a jelly… I’m not sure about that, the colour being so opaque… I would call it a medium red cream. Have you tried it? Do you think it’s a jelly?

    This is a fantastic red. Sounds like a creme but that high shine could make it appear to be a jelly. Love it.

    APolishedTouch: The colour is less shinny today, after one night sleep. It’s still shinny, but more like a crème than a jelly… I guess that would make it a crème…

      Sorry I can’t tell, I don’t have Zoya Sooki.
