I have had this polish forever. I’ve had it so long I have no idea where I got it or how I obtained it. This was prior to my nail polish obsession days, obviously, and I had never used it so I finally decided to give it a try.
Merlot is a deep almost burgundy red jelly. For some crazy reason my camera made this color appear a bit lighter than it really is regardless of light (this picture was taken in the sun). But I was so impressed by this polish I just had to post it anyway.
Merlot is a jelly, so the formula is a bit on the thin side. Even though it’s thin, I only needed 3 coats. The wear on this was great.
I didn’t really have any expectations for this polish. I’d never used any polish from the Jessica Cosmetics brand before. I am impressed, though, and this color is still available. Now if only I could figure out where to purchase this brand so I can try some other colors….
