I usually plot out my polish purchases very carefully. Wind of new collections comes *months* prior to release, and I have all the time in the world to plot, search for swatches, and stalk my prey. Every once in a while though, I pick up a polish at random - it is usually a massive disappointment. (Or I realize I've already tried it...oi...) I'm happy to say that this impulse purchase is a total exception!
I was in Target (with a chaperone...not allowed back there without one) and saw Essie Plumberry in the display - a colour I've never given a second look. BUT I have into pink/berry colours lately to match some bright lip looks I've been doing, and this juicy red raspberry hit the sweet spot.
Essie Plumberry is a luscious dark berry pink. Application was absolute perfection, and it was shiny and squishy without any top coat at all - but I did top it with Seche Vite.
It's not often that a polish comes along that I know I will wear over and over and over again. Essie Smokin' Hot was probably the most recent one for me. I'm happy to say that Plumberry is now added to my "signature polish" arsenal!
Do you have a signature polish(es)?
