Essie Jazz NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 11 - 2010

I broke ’em while bowling at the Sleek MakeUP do last week *sniff*

Still, every cloud and all that… it gave me the opportunity to break out a nice nude in an attempt to elongate my fingers.

Essie’s Jazz is just that.  A great nude!  It’s slightly ‘dirty’ toned which I love!  It just gives it an edge.

Formula was fabulous… 2 coats gave plently of coverage and the quick-dry glossy finish meant that I didn’t need to top coat it at all.  A super mani for lazy sods like me!

Do you prefer nude polishes on long or short nails?  I can never decide which looks best!

    Usually nudes don’t ever do much for me… but for some reason this really calls to me!

  9. Rebecca says:

    I like nudes on all nail lengths!

    Yummy. I hate long nails. They make me feel queasy. That Essie has a lovely finish.

  11. Ashwini says:

    Beautiful shade and I love your short nails. They look so chic!

  12. Sara says:

    Personally, I think all polish looks better on short nails! No offense to anyone with longer nails because you should have whatever makes you happy, but I always think they look like claws! Haha. I like a little burst of color on the ends of my nails, so I keep them shorter and that nice squared round shape. My hands just also look better with a short nail, so I’m never really wanting to grow them 😉

    The colour is amazing! I like nude on both long and short nails, it’s one of the only colours that looks good on both.
