Products used: Erre Due Diamond Base Coat 6.49€ Essie (Winter 2013) no. 851 ‘Shearling Darling’ 12.50€ Erre Due Ceramic Top Coat 6.49€ First Impressions: Tomorrow, this girl’s going hunting for the latest Essie (Resort ’14) shades. Today, however, Sunday Manicure presents ‘Shearling Darling’ – the 4th out of the six-piece Winter ’13 collection to grace my talons. Labeled as a “rich, plush, ebony red”, this looks gorgeous in the bottle but upon (a typical two-coat) application transforms into a run-of-the-mill dark burgundy – which we’ve all seen (& worn) a thousand times. Other than the color being a bit of a ‘disappointment’, this is pretty good – as usual. Good consistency, average to short drying time and minimal (but there) patching – mainly at the very base of the nail. Probably not a must- have but still a good classic – for those of you who might be lacking in the area. Have any of you tried ‘Shearling Darling’? What did you think?
