Perfectly Plum - Essie Sole Mate


A perfect dark plum...

...in the shade...

...and in the sun...

I know it looks dark in the photos, but when you compare it to something like OPI Lincoln Park After Dark, it is distinctly lighter and you can always tell that it's purple instead of black.

This is one of those Essie polishes that is just perfect. Gorgeous warm plum tone, great formula - I hope they never discontinue this classic. It just feels right.

This was my "go to" vampy for years, back before I had an enormous stash of polish, and the first polish I ever bought a back up of. I probably still have a half empty black label bottle around somewhere. I still use it all the time. Love it!

Oh that's yummy! Is there shimmer in there or is it just *ping!* shiny in the sun?

Gorgeous! I love how it changes in the shade and darken s in the sun. This is "my new must-have," love it. Smashing color how it looks so beautiful on your nails. Essie has done it again.

Love,

Ohhh, it's like staring down into a glass of blueberry wine. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm... I just did a post on Essie Allure and thought of you. I think it might be my all time favorite nude from them! :-)

@Grace - Yes I knew that! I thought of you when I put it on because I remember you mentioning how it was one of your favs. :)

@ilexica - No shimmer - just a nice shiny *ping*!! I love that Essie polishes always seem to be super super shiny :)

@Honey_lili - I love some vampy myself - even in the spring/summer weather!

@Geo58 - I'm glad you like it!! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. :)

@Charlotte - Mmmmm blueberry wine...I love that description! Checking out your Essie Allure post now!

Oh, thanks for posting this! I've been wanting something like LPAD but not so darn dark! It's essentially just black! Yay! I feel inspired for vampies now! (Of course, now that it's almost summer LOL)

Looks amazing on you! Very much like Nubar Corvina on me. My skin tone makes Sole Mate lean more brown, which i'm not very happy about.
