Today's polish is Essie Bobbing for Baubles from Essie's stellar 2011 winter collection.
|Sunlight, 2 coats|
Bobbing for Baubles is an incredibly rich inky navy blue. It's not quite on the level of appearing black, but it is very dark.
This polish has one of the creamiest formulas I've ever worked with! You can definitely get away with one coat, but I do two out of habit and to make sure everything's evened out perfectly.
Bobbing for Baubles is also incredibly glossy - the pictures above are with no topcoat! For extended wear a topcoat is always a good idea, but I wanted to show you just how shiny this one is on its own. I could see my reflection in my nails!
I was a huge fan of Essie's Cocktail Bling collection last year, I got 4/6 of the colours and love each one! Essie recently released a preview of their upcoming winter collection, and I'm so excited that it looks just as good as 2011's! Which shades are you most looking forward to? Where's My Chauffer?, Beyond Cozy, and the titular Leading Lady grab my eye at first. I can't wait until swatches start popping up!
