Essie Masquerade Belle.
I love the colour! Sadly, this is the first Essie nail polish I've worn, even though I owned two from a while back - I've been hoarding so much polish lately that I haven't had time to wear them all yet. I'm sure I'l give it a rest soon...
Anyway, despite being in a mini bottle with a little brush, this applied like a dream. I've read lots of good things about Essie; in particular, that they're the brand to go to for creme polishes. All the hype was right. It's smooth, dries quickly and has a lovely glossy finish, even without topcoat. Masquerade Belle is a lovely dark burgundy colour. The picture below is two coats, plus one layer of topcoat. As you can see, I'm kind of rough on my nails (you can see the scratches in the topcoat), but that aside, it's a great polish.
Beautiful burgundy creme.
