Essie Shine of the Times over Rimmel Red Award


#notd Essie “Shine of the Times” over Rimmel “Red Award.” Omg why haven’t I tried SOTT over red before? The Rimmel formula was tough. It’s a beautiful glossy blood red jelly-ish texture and claims to have Lycra in it. I don’t know if that was the problem but it did NOT play nicely with Seche Vite. It was bad news bears for two fingers and I had to redo my thumb three times. Fussy but pretty if you can make it work. And under SOTT? Lovely and autumny and warm.
