NOTW: OPI St. Petersburgundy & Essie Beyond Cozy
The red is OPI's St. Petersburgundy which is a deep red jelly. It's my go to for a classic red nail. The blue tones in it make it perfectly vampy and dark without going too too dark.
I added an accent of Essie's Beyond Cozy from the Leading Lady holiday collection just to add a little bit of sparkle. The color of the glitter is like a platinum gold.
What I have on my nails is 3 coats of the OPI and 2 coats of the Essie. The Essie glitter is a very fine glitter but very densely packed so it went on opaque in 2 coats.
The photo was taken about 3 days after application and there was little to no wear at this point. By New Years, it was slightly worn around the tips, as well as on the glitter nail.
There isn't much else to say about this manicure - but I did really enjoy this manicure and got a lot of positive comments on it at work :)
