Another look at Essie Wicked

October 29, 2013

Years ago when I first started painting my nails in earnest, I researched online for the best polishes and topcoats. I distinctly remember TONS of people online recommending Essie Wicked and Seche Vite topcoat. I really believe that if you try a polish and topcoat that work extremely well, it will most likely change the way you look at nail polish. It’s like a beginner artist trying professional brushes and paints for the first time—you see how the tools really can make your job easier. That’s the experience I had with Wicked and Seche Vite.

I’ve mentioned in the past here at Daily Something that I adore Essie Wicked. It’s the perfect vampy dark blood red, in my opinion. It can almost do no wrong. That’s how much I love it. Well, since we’re knee-deep in autumn nail polish colors, I thought Essie Wicked deserved another look.

It’s really quite a color-shifter. Indoors, it looks almost black. But in direct sunlight, it’s a deep burgundy red. So pretty. :)

    This is such a beautiful colour, and I love the shine you get with Seche Vite although I have a real issue with shrinkage, do you get this? And if so, how do you get around it?
    Thanks in advance, I love your blogs :-)

    How funny, I just bought this color on Saturday because I thought it would be a good fall color :) I’ve just starting to paint my nails with color after only wearing clear polish on them for the past 5 years. I’m terrible at polishing with my non-dominant hand, but your video showing how to clean up mistakes last week has helped! Hopefully I’ll get better at it.

    Gorgeous! I’ll be looking for this next time I’m at CVS!

    This is my fave polish by far! It never fails to get compliments. I do prefer the Essie top coat to Seche Vite though. I find the latter is too thick and causes bubbles.
