By now, you know I can’t resist a good fall red. Every girl needs one in their collection, I just happen to need… all of them.
This season my Fall red of choice is With the Band from Essie’s Leggy Legend collection. As always, I’m entertained by essie’s description: backstage. in the club. in the studio. toasted spice burgundy heats things up wherever she goes.
With the Band is a beautiful red creme. It reminds me a lot of OPI’s First Date at Golden Gate. The formula is what makes this a stand out – I used two coats, but you can easily get away with just one. The polish applies smoothly and overall I give it the lazy nail bloggers double thumbs up seal of approval.
Fun fact, look how similar my cover image is to the one I did for Dress to Kilt, last year’s fall red from Essie. Weird!
As much drama as there was about Essie going retail a few years ago, I love that it’s so much more accessible now. It’s great. You can pick up Essie polishes for 8.50 each at stores ranging from drugstore to department. I usually buy my Essie at Ulta or Walgreen’s.
I hope you have a beautiful start to a beautiful week.
If you’ve made it this far, you deserve to know a secret. All along I’ve thought that this polish meant with the band, as in the school band. I thought oh that’s so nice, because in high school…. well, anyway. THEN I was thinking of Leggy Legend… the theme didn’t match up. So I realized it meant With the Band… So now I’m imagining a My So Called Life situation, like when Jordan Catalano sings Red. Seriously, best show.
