Weekly Mani: The Classic Red Nail

I absolutely love a classic red nail.

I remember growing up and being so envious of the older women who would wear red and rock it. They always looked so sophisticated.

I mean, just look at the pretty color of Essie’s Gel Couture polish in Beauty Marked.

I was sold and HAD to wear it.

This was great with just 1 coat, but I did 2 to be on the safe side.  I also used Essie’s Gel Couture Top Coat.

What I love about this formula, is it really dries fast. I wasn’t waiting FOREVER like I usually am for my nails to dry completely.  The brush is nicely rounded and pretty big, so I was able to get a lot of coverage in just 1 swipe on most of my nails (thumb being the exception).

I have yet to really know what the staying power of this nail polish is like, because it’s only been 2 days since I’ve put it on, but so far so good!
