NOTD: Essie Bordeaux

Hello!  I am back with another Nail Of The Day (NOTD) post.  Today's manicure features a line up of Essie products which I am very impressed by.  Seriously, Essie is on its way to being my favourite nail polish brand this year.  In case you were wondering, OPI is or maybe, was,  my favourite nail polish brand. 
Firstly, I used Essie's Protein Base Coat.  Essie's Bordeaux is the nail polish colour and lastly, I topped the manicure off with Essie's To Dry For Polishing Drying Top Coat.  Here's the result:

I used filters with the above photograph because the light was making my camera's settings crazy- the camera made it look brown instead of the deep burgundy red it actually is.  The name is very apt as the colour reminds me of red wine and Bordeaux is a region in France which produces mostly red wines.
The formula of the nail polish is excellent- not too runny and not gloopy at all. The consistency of the nail polish allowed for smooth application.  For less of a deep burgundy red, try one coat to achieve a deep red colour.  However, if you want your manicure to look true to colour, I would recommend at least 2 coats to achieve that deep burgundy red colour.  This nail polish leaves a very glossy finish which I like very much.  You can skip a glossy top coat if you want but I would still recommend using a top coat, not for the glossy finish, but to increase the longevity of the manicure.
Have you tried any Essie nail polishes yet? If yes, what do you think about it? Is Essie your favourite nail polish brand?
