I am just stating this for reference now: This is the perfect autumn nail polish. Okay, now that’s said, the ESSIE Wicked is an all time favorite when it comes to the “so dark red it’s almost black” kind of shades (more on my love for them here).
In the picture above it actually does look black, and I do find that it turns darker over time. This picture was taken four days after application – and no chips ahead! I thank my trusted top coat for that. I usually go for two coats of Wicked as the first coat tends to get streaky and uneven, but I you’re the patient kind then one coat will do. That will give you are more red than black shade. I really love how this colour goes with everything for autumn, but especially with charcoal grey and dark green. These dark shades are just the epitome of fall!
