Essie Limited Addiction

So, I know this came out a good solid couple months ago, but I figured I'd pay homage to the red that finally ousted OPI An Affair in Red Square as my favorite red.  I didn't think it could be done!  An Affair in Red Square was the first polish I ever needed to have.  It was the first time I felt from a polish that draw and allure that is all too familiar now.  Oddly enough I picked up Limited Addiction on a whim.  I needed a good deep-ish red creme, and it just seemed to fit the bill.  Classy, luxe, and beautiful.

Application is a dream with Limited Addiction.  It's almost a jelly, but two coats is still plenty to get the coverage you need.  I used three coats here, but that's because I'm a doof and managed to put a dent in one of my nails.  I threw a third coat over just the one, but then it was a smidge deeper than the others (D'oh!), so naturally the rest had to get a third coat as well.  Oh well, it was worth it.

Mental note:  In the future, take pictures of Essie polishes with your right hand so the bottle doesn't look upside down (oops lol).  It was surprisingly hard to photograph this.  No matter how hard I tried, I still couldn't get it to be exactly color accurate.  Sorry!  Imagine it to be maybe a shade cooler and a little brighter, but still just as sexy.  If you don't already have your Holy Grail red, try this little number out!
