Crystal File 041: Essie Damsel in a Dress and It's Genius

The remaining two colors i purchased from the new Essie Winter 2008 collection. Damsel in a dress is a gorgeous vampy plum, slightly metallic due to subtle silvery shimmer. It's Genius is a mid-toned warm purple with strong golden shimmer and tiny flecks of multi-colored sparkle.

Damsel in a Dress applied well, although the formula seemed a bit thick. It's Genius was a true problem child with tons of drag marks and brushstrokes, but if you like the color perhaps it will be worth it to you. I found the entire Winter 2008 collection at Trade Secret, and eventually it will be available at other retailers such as Ulta, and online as well.

I must look away from the tempting deep purple. Any chances of comparing it to LPAM?
