LACQUER LIFE | a polka dot case study

When I saw Essie's "Case Study" on the shelf, I couldn't help but take it home with me (after paying of course). I know I said I was going to leave Essie alone, but this color looked so yummy - I couldn't resist. "Case Study" is from their new Fall Collection, which consists of a myriad of rich hues that compliment the seasons. Initially when I put it on, it seemed too close to last weeks color. It didn't help that my husband asked me why I bought the same color again (men!). I ended up painting that previous color on my ring finger and realized that there was a clear distinction between the two. Once it dried, I then decided to paint polka dots to tie it in together.

I've yet to purchase Top Coat - does it really help? Is one better than the other? I need recommendations.

Top coat really helps to keep the color on longer. Because I type so much, it's a must when I get my nails done. I like Sally Hansen "Hard As Nails" topcoat, but any one will do. NYC polish is in CVS and works just as well.

Wait, what's wrong with Essie??

@KIM : Essie is cool - but I find that it chips easier than OPI
