Essie — Double Breasted Jacket (Nail Polish) Swatch & Review

Collection: Essie 2013 Spring, Resort

I recently picked up this 2013 Resort collection Essie at a nice discount, and it’s just perfect for spring!

Essie calls Double Breasted Jacket (889) a “passionate tourmaline ruby”. It’s a beautifully clean, clear medium red with soft, azalea pink undertones. It looks like one of those reds that would look fantastic on all skintones, warm or cool.

Red creams usually apply perfectly, and this is no exception. One coat is actually almost fully opaque, but Double Breasted Jacket looks best with two coats. Still, I’d classify it as a one-coat wonder!

  1. This is pretty! I’ve seen this on clearance before too but I didn’t get it because “just how many red cremes does one person need?” But now I think I’ll get it next time I see it – it’s more pink than red to me.
