Nails of the Week #4: Essie Bordeaux

My nails of the week is definitely throw off now from last week having to do project pan on a Monday, so don't be surprised when you see patriotic nails next week! Anyways for this week I picked out this beautiful red from Essie called Bordeaux. Excuse my slightly sloppy paint job, it wasn't until after I took all the pictures I noticed the little bald spots on the side, I'm not perfect! This was a beautiful oxblood that required two coats for opacity. Some of the nails were a little streaky so I ended up doing three coats for some. I must admit that this color looks quite similar to a number of reds that I own such as Essie's own Shearling Darling and Wicked as well as OPI's Got the Blues for the Red. This isn't that special of a dark red so there's no need to run out and buy it, but it was a nice change from the pinks and pastel designs that I've been rocking of late. You'll notice a huge different in the shade under natural lighting, it will be quite obvious in the detail pictures below where I took them, but I think that's the true beauty of these deep reds. Under artificial lighting they appear almost black and outside it's a nice ruby glow.
