I’m quite excited about this post as it’s another tick in my checklist to own all of Essie’s Winter Collection 2013.
I’ve previously posted about Vested Interest and Cashmere Bathrobe which I loved and now I’m here to tell you my thoughts on ‘After School Boy Blazer’.
As soon as I saw this one I knew I had to pick it up but I just couldnt find it anywhere – everyone clearly had the same idea! I trawled all of Cardiff stores multiple times, the internet and also 4 separate stores in London within a 2 hour walking spree and still couldn’t find it.
I’d given up all hope until I went in by chance not even looking for it and there it was! Along with the gorgeous deep red of Twin Sweater Set, but that’s another post….
This colour is absolutely beautiful. It’s a super dark blue/black. The photos do not do it justice whatsoever and it’s hard to describe which means I’m in a bit of a pickle trying to explain this!
The photos were taken after 2 coats of polish and one of top coat without flash (above) and with (below). You can see how SUPER shiny the polish shows up and I was given many compliments when wearing it.
It’s such a chic alternative to black as you can definitely tell it’s not black but it’s so dark it could be.
As always with Essie products the application was easy with their awesome brushes, I find that they can fill most of my nails with one swipe which makes life easy and 2 with my thumb nails.
The colour almost looks to me like it’s part of a beetle; it’s so dark and shiny and almost looks black but has that blue/purple/green tinge that so many of them have, this one obviously being blue.
I don’t think I need to waffle on for much longer – this polish is a clear hit with me!
