Once again I decided to go with something simple but gorgeous, so I picked Essie Leading Lady for that mission. I didn't really had time for stamping or anything complicated this time, so this was a great option for me since this polish is so pretty on it's own.
Essie Leading Lady is a red jelly with small red glitter. It instantly reminded me of my all time favorite China Glaze Ruby Pumps, but this one it a bit darker, so I decided to get this beauty too.
Application was a bit too streaky for my taste, as it was with Essie Beyond Cozy, but it might have been like that only for me since I haven't read any other complaints about their formula. I recall that CG Ruby Pumps was much easier to apply, but I guess that was because the glitter in it was much smaller compared to Essie Leading Lady.
I needed only two coats to get this look, and one top coat of Poshe. I was very pleased with the result. It was so gorgeous on the nails that it made me forget about the tiny trouble I had while applying it, so I think it's a good one after all.
Essie Leading Lady is a very popular color from the Winter 2012 collection and I can assume that most of you probably have it in your collection by now. I would say it is a bit different than CG Ruby Pumps but I think I still prefer Ruby Pumps since it's formula was better to me. But still, having them both in my collections couldn't harm, right? You can never have enough sf a gorgeous sparkly red polish. ;)
