I have a ton of Essie polishes, and need to start swatching them! I have noticed that so far I have been favoring OPI, shame on me! Essie is just as great, but kinda overlooked.
Something else about me, I have tooo manyyyy red and pink polishes!! I prefer bold and unusual colors, I dont know how I ended up with so many shades of red and pink...ewww. But I have to remember, if I ever do become a licensed nail tech, red and pink are popular with most ladies, and I can use those polishes on them haha. And I am sure not everyone who reads my blog is as bold and unusual as me, so just because I prefer a bright yellow polish doesnt mean everyone else would. LOL
I bought this Essie at Bed Bath and Beyond. They have a GREAT selection of Essie, even some of the harder to find retired colors. From what I understand, this color is from the Winter 2006 collection. Score!!
Wild Thing is a cranberry red color with scattered silver and holographic glitter. It looks FAB in the bottle, but the glitter kinda gets lost when on the nail. You may see a fleck here and there once it dries, but overall the glitter is disappointing. The wear is great on this polish, and its a fun one, with a more traditional color but with a hint of glitter to keep things interesting. It also looks much nicer in sunlight! The glitter is sort of hard to photograph, which is typical. I took lots of photos to try and capture it.
