Essie: Jamaica Me Crazy

Hello again!

I've not been changing my polish all that often lately - and have even taken a short break from wearing it for an entire week! - so my recent choices have been a bit more deliberate I suppose as I try to mix things up around the colour wheel, while still keeping things seasonally appropriate.  Are you with me? Okay, so let's get onto today's little nail polish post!

I received Essie's Jamaica Me Crazy as part of an unexpected gift of three Essie polishes from a cubicle buddy at work who obviously knows me all too well!  I used to be crazy over magenta back in the day so Jamaica Me Crazy called out to me first - this shimmering magenta is something I hadn't worn in a long time.  This polish wears like a shimmery raspberry jelly on the nails and is a little bit retro but I still enjoyed it.  It applied nicely in a couple of coats but even with a top coat did take a while to dry properly and unfortunately I managed to do some damage after taking these pictures.   Also, please excuse the nubbies!

That's it for now - and my next post will be the long overdue Autumn empties...

  1. This is a fun, retro kind of shade! I've been changing up my nails a lot lately, too, but part of that is because I think my current top coat sucks, lol. Need a new one soon, but trying to use up this stupid bottle.

    1. Very retro - it reminds me of the '80's! There's nothing worse than when your top coat lets you down. I admire your determination to finish it off!

  2. I love this nail length on you, I think it's very chic :)
    I like how this looks in the bottle with the shimmer but think it would be even better as a crème shade :)

    1. I agree with you Emma - I absolutely adore magenta creme polishes, especially for winter!

    1. The name gave me a pretty good giggle! What is it with nail polish names these days? They're all trying to outdo each other! Lol

  4. It's such a beautiful shade! I can't wear shimmering shades though, so I might look for this magenta colour in mat finish ;)
    If you'd like you could check out my new blog arabesque - I'd be honored ;)
