When I was on vacation last month, I managed to snag several bottles of my favorite type of polish: cheap. :D Oh...I shouldn't say "cheap"...it sounds so...cheap. How about calling it "polishes I found at an excellent price"? Yes...much better. I found a bottle of Essie All Tied Up, from their Summer 2012 collection, for something like $3 at TJ Maxx. I can honestly say that I don't own anything even close to this color!
Essie's website describes All Tied Up like this: "this rustic bronze with subtle golden shimmer glistens with a restrained, yet warm and sensuous charm that will leave him totally tongue-tied." Well now that's different. Not only would I not call this color "bronze", but for some reason I'm never thinking of how I can render some guy speechless with my manicure. For somebody who loves vampy shades, I'm more like Goldilocks. :D
I would personally describe All Tied Up as a medium rosy terracotta. How's that for a description? Hey, it's better than bronze! :) It does have a lovely golden shimmer. I love shimmer! <3
I used 2 coats of All Tied Up for the photos...then my camera got all upset upon seeing me wearing a color that hailed from the Orange-esque Dynasty and paid me back by portraying me as Wilbur the Pig. You'll have to trust me when I say that I still look my regular color in person. :)
Let's talk formula...oh Essie, WHY can't you make everything like this one? It was just perfect...creamy and easy to apply. And it really is a lovely color. It's just that my camera and I aren't used to seeing me like this. It's a sort of "not-very-me" neutral.

So...how about that? I'm wearing ALL kinds of new things!:) Do you have a color like this one? What color does it turn your skin? And most importantly, SHOULD nail polish be considered a lethal weapon against a man?? :)
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! <3
