Untried #1-Essie Sexy Divide

Wow!  Hello there.  Clearly I haven't written anything in awhile and I haven't meant to but tonight I was just feeling it.  Maybe it was because I had a terrible day at work and I was feeling chatty perhaps?  Either way, I wanted to share my polish with you and I really like the idea of sharing untried polishes.  Maybe it will only be every once and a while, we'll see.  Let's get to it!

Today's very first untried is Essie Sexy Divide.  I have definitely not been into Summer polishes this's pretty much just been nudes, metallics, and pastels for me.  We had a nice week of 70's this week and I just went for the vampy polishes.  I reached for Essie's Sexy Divide, which originally comes from the Winter 2008 collection.  It's a dark, cool-toned shimmery purple, which is almost black and sometimes a bit blue looking.

The formula was really great on this polish, I had zero formula problems.  I used two easy coats with one coat of Seche Vite topcoat for my swatches, which are also taken after a full days wear of this polish.

Overall I'm quite pleased with this vampy little number, although I know I'll have to keep the vampy nails to a minimum next week because we're going to be in the 90's...yikes!  Do you own this polish?  What do you think of it?
