Essies' Splash of Grenadine is a real pretty spring color!
I was a little bummed though because I thought it would come out more purple like it looks in the bottle. But it came out more of a warm medium pink with purple undertones. I may try adding more coats next time (here I have on one thick coat and you may be able to tell the difference from the bottle to my nails). I wanted it to be more purple because I already have a warm medium pink with purple undertones in my collection- my favorite OPI polish in Japanese Rose Garden. I will have to do some side by side shots because they are practically identical. Despite my initial disappointment, it's still a overall great spring-time color :]
Formula is great!! Applies easy and even. First coat is slightly sheer but covers well- not blotchy. 2 coats would probably be ideal. Dries to a nice shiny finish. started chipping within about 2 days and by the 4th day it had to come off. I use my hands quite a bit so I'm sure that may have effected its' lasting power.
Retails for around 7-8 USD depending on where you purchase it. I wouldn't go out of my way to repurchase this but only because I have 2 more bottles of this exact shade of pink. I personally like OPIs Japanese Rose Garden better (long time favorite- review of that one coming soon) :]
Have a Happy Mothers Day!!!!!!
