Essie Angora Cardi | Swatch & Review!
Essie's Angora Cardi is a dusty mauve in a creme finish. It's dark enough to be a good color for fall, but has enough brightness to still be easy to wear in the spring time. It's actually one of my favorite fall colors because it's a great way to incorporate color into your manis without being too overwhelming.
I like how neutral it is but still how you can get a little pop on your nails. It's a great color for people who either like neutrals and are venturing towards incorporating more colors or for people that can't wear brights in their work place. My brother's fiancee wears a lot of colors like this.
The formula is great. It's solidly opaque in 2 coats and doesn't have any patchiness. It evens out on the nail beautifully and dries down o a shiny finish.
I added Seche Vite on top just to seal in the manicure.
I'm not sure if this is part of Essie's core line - it's on their website so I'm assuming it is. Essie polishes are available at all drugstores in the U.S. and retail for between $8 and $10.
