Essie Showstopper

Pictures like this one is why I try to carry my camera with me everyday! This is on my way to work, walking on 43rd Street heading from 6th Avenue to 5th Avenue. This is the Chrysler Building.

I am wearing Essie Showstopper because one of my favorite managers at work wanted to see a red. He is working the WHOLE week, so I want to bring a smile to his face. I will try to wear reds all week. Let's see how THAT goes as I don't really like reds. On an added note... I do have a ton of reds that are still untrieds!
This is 3 coats (I think I am becoming a habitual 3 coater) It is a dark red with a ton of gold shimmer. You can see the brush strokes, and I think it comes out looking a little metallic. It is an old formula Essie, and has all the old fashioned chemicals, which means that it stank!. I am not in love with it, but afterall it will only be on my nails for one day, so I don't have to live with it for very long.
