Essie Bobbing for Baubles

My daughter believes that I throw the phrase "it's my favorite" around a bit too much when talking nail polish. But I explain to her that "No. In fact, China Glaze Ruby Pumps IS my favorite true red jelly-based red microglitter." So you see, the categories are endless. So believe me when I say that Essie Bobbing for Baubles is my new favorite!

I did not own this polish until recently. This bottle was the lone Essie in the CVS clearance basket. This had to be a mistake. I'd heard of the polish, but since it was released prior to me just completely giving in to my full-blown polish addiction, I never went searching for it. (It came out about a year ago as part of the Essie Winter 2011 Cocktail Bling Collection.)

Why do I love it? First, the application is flawless. Look at these pics! This polish was almost opaque in a single coat (uh-mazing) and had perfect, smooth coverage in the second coat. No dragging. Easy control with the brush. No clean-up. Glassy finish even before topcoat (I used Seche Vite in the pics).

Then, don't get me started on this color! Biggest points for being office friendly. It's a gray leaning (dirty?) navy blue with an almost purple undertone to it. It's dark...but not gothic. There's just something about this color that is extremely wearable. I am loving it! And yes...it's my favorite...my favorite office-appropriate dark gray-blue cream! :)
