Je ne sais quoi

Some polishes just have IT, you know that little bit of something special.

Here is one I adore:

Great googly moogly!

Isn't she a bute!

Essie - Urban Express

*sigh*








I'd like to thank a Long Island dusty for this one.  Yes, they have more to offer than interesting accents and duck feet nail tips.




I have another Essie that is also very pretty like this ... well not quite.

Essie - Moda Scoota

HOT.  Espeially in the evening under dark lighting.






This is during the day time.








I'd like to thank my Grandma for "leaving" this one at my house. ;)














A comparison of the two.

There is another Essie that I want to compare Urban Express to ... Wrapped in Rubies.

hhmmm

Anyone own Essie - Wrapped in Rubies?  How do you think it would compare?

  4. That copper shimmer almost makes Urban Express a duochrome! Either way...all of those colors are so pretty.

  6. Urban Express is a stunner (can I say that about a polish?)! BTW the polishes are so shiny, did you use top coat?

  7. Gorgeous hands & nails! Those shades are HAWT. Clearly, you've inherited your Grandma's excellent taste.... I can thank you enough for your nail fix series. I found your blog thru tPF a week ago & devoured your archives. My hands and nails already look so much better & I'm gaining a lot more confidence. those ingredient lists aren't so scary anymore!!
