Essie - Glamour Purse

Hello everyone,

I'm back from my long weekend in Paris (again!). This time was a little bit more touristic... but I couldn't miss the Sephora huge store on the Champs Elysées! ;)
I haven't downloaded the pictures yet... but coming soon! ;)

Meanwhile, today I'll be showing you a polish that matches very well the  here, in Toulouse, at this moment: rainy ,windy, gray-ishy, gloomy.. all of that!

Now about the polish...
When I first saw the 2011 fall collection from Essie, this was the polish I knew I wanted, even though it's been done a hundred times. I just have a "thing" for taupe, mushroom-y colours like this one. I already have OPI Over the Taupe - which is by the way my fav' polish ever, and my first OPI ever! ;) - and I just thought I'd try a different brand, like challenging my ever-sweetheart-Over the Taupe ;) But now I know that these 2 are quite different: Glamour Purse has more gray in it and a subtle purple undertone, while Over the Taupe sticks to the classical beige undertones, looking basically like milk chocolate on my nails ;)
I didn't do a comparison here, but I will if you want me to - just tell me!

The application was very good, needed 2 coats for opacity and the wear was also very good.

 Here I'm wearing 2 coats of Essie Glamour Purse + 1 coat of Seche Vite:

In conclusion:

Application: 4.5/5
Formula: 4.5/5
Finish: 4.5/5
Drying time: 4.5/5
Opacity: 4.5/5
Wear: 4.0/5.0

Overall: 4.42/5

Thank you everyone for watching!
