Below: Indoors with no flash. The gloss is so intense on this one that all of the flash pictures I took didn't turn out, so this is a bit dark. Such a cute little certificate that came with it!
Today's mail brought me an unfamiliar package from Hearst Publications. I didn't recall ordering anything, but when I felt a nail polish bottle inside the padded envelope, I remembered about the contest that I shared with you several months back, sponsored by Jello and Redbook. I am happy to have won one of these not only because they are limited edition (they only made 1,000 in this color and 1,000 in the other shade that is also only available through this contest, called Raspberry Goji), but because I've been trying to add to my Essie collection, having only about 12-15 in this line. It's a beautiful shade of deep cherry red, a creme, and it applied nicely after 3 thin coats. I am awed by the high gloss of this polish with no top coat. I think I'm going to go make some Jello now!
