In regards to the title, no, this isn’t some assertion of vanity. Rather, it’s the name of one of Essie’s polishes in their A/W 2012 collection. Four beautiful, though not your traditionally wintery colours (namely the awesome turquoise , which is next on my shopping list!) are this year’s offering. And to be honest, I like the fact that its not simply your usual dark plums or bordeaux. Change is good, well I think so anyway. It’s good to spice things up in a while, and I’m betting that these babies won’t be on the shelves for long, so if you’re interested, get to it! Leading lady, is incredibly festive and cheerful, yet still retains a sophisticated tone, given the its dark merlot colour speckled with fine red glitter which just brings a lightness to the polish. Not to mention, the boots diffusion line applies brilliantly. I’m not even kidding, the application is just so easy! I love the fact that it has a nice, big brush. The only problem is now I want to go back to the Essie counter and buy a zillion more! They retail at £7.99, although not the easy-on-the-wallet-Barry M-£2.99 price, the quality and amazing colour range seems to justify it on some level, don’t you think?
