I was sorting through my stash recently to see what I still needed to swatch on nail wheels and found three bottles of Essie Berry Hard (two black label and one blue). I like the color, a deep berry red that doesn't pull too dark on me, but having three bottles of it seems excessive even to me. Since I had plenty, I figured I should wear it, so it was my nails of the day for most of last week.
This is two coats of color over base coat (Orly Nail Defense and Salon Sciences Instant Artificials) and under top coat (Sally Hansen Insta Dri Anti Chip Top Coat). I got some tipwear around day three and my first chip on day four (on my thumbnail, which I just can't seem to stop using as a tool to scrape things with).
