I didn't think I needed this Essence polish until I saw photos of it on Candy Glaze blog. Soak Up the Sun is one of the shades from Sun Kissed trend edition and is perfect for anyone who likes dark, vampy colors on their nails.
Essence, Soak Up the Sun (Sun Kissed TE), 2 coats
Soak Up the Sun is a brownish red color (could also be described as maroon color) which dries a bit darker than it looks in the bottle. It doesn't look black in low light, but it is pretty dark. In my humble opinion, it looks much more classy than a regular black nail polish (although classy usually isn't the thing I'm going for). I sort of kissed and made up with the brush (sort of) but I still don't like it. I like the formula though. Two thin coats and there you have it.
And here's the reason I don't have any outdoor photos of the polish although I did went out with the intention to capture Soak Up the Sun in natural lighting. Bombi is a kamikaze master. Walk the stairs with him and try to stay alive. I'm just saying...
Thanks for looking and commenting!
