After wearing Essie's Shine Of The Times last week, I opted for a more classic manicure. And nothing is more classic than red. Essie's Lacquered Up is a tomato red cream polish. It only needed two coats for opacity. It wore well, lasting 5 days without chipping. I used CND Stickey base coat and Out The Door top coat. It was my first time using this top coat, and so far so good.
