If You Can’t Go Green, Go Bordeaux

-------


As a completely sold-out Chanel Jade soars past the $100 mark on eBay, imitations are springing up. Essie recently launched its Mint Candy Apple, a creamy pastel green that’s presumably meant to rival Peter Philips’ Chanel lacquer. On its own it’s a pretty enough shade, but we’re going to be flat-out honest with you, dear reader: It’s no Jade. Essie does have a one-up on Chanel, though. Bordeaux’s bold burgundy puts it in the same family as Vamp, but in our humble opinion it’s actually superior to the hyped-up, metallic-flecked polish. The Essie color possesses a gorgeous scarlet undertone that a lot of other deep berry shades don’t, so it’s a touch warmer—and dare we say, classier—than its competitors, but every bit as edgy. Extra bonus: It has a unique sanguine quality that should excite all the vampire enthusiasts out there.
