Essie Camera

Essie Camera was an awesome birthday gift from my friend Brandi over at The Collegiate Nail! Camera, a bright red-based coral jelly, is part of Essie's Poppy-razzi Collection released earlier this summer. Although this color is quite bright, it's not an eye-scalding neon. I guess whether that's a good or bad thing depends upon your polish preferences, but personally I really like this polish!




The formula here felt a little runny to me so I had some trouble keeping things neat around the cuticle area. This was three coats. Pictured here was day three (going on four) of this manicure and as you can see, it held up really well!

I love how squishy this looks! You don't see too many neon jellies. Even though it's a jelly, Camera has enough opacity to it to cover up any pesky VNL. This color also seems to be very similar to OPI Guy Meets Gal-veston from the Texas Collection so if you missed out on that one or just like bright, cheerful jellies, give Camera a look!

  3. Hmm. I think I'll be purchasing this instead of OPI Guy Meets Gal-veston. Essie Camera looks so much more pigmented and shiner. And who can give up a good jelly? :D

    1. I can say with confidence that Camera is more pigmented than the jellies I have from the OPI Texas Collection (although I don't have Guy Meets Gal-veston specifically), but you still get that great squishy jelly finish with Camera too. It's a win-win! :)

    I may have to leave my boyfriend for this color.
