Essie Sexy Divide is a royal purple creme with a satin shimmer in the bottle that disappears on the nail (rats). I was hoping this would be the purple sister to Essie Aruba Blue, but alas, like a picture of a condo swimming pool, that shimmer is just for attracting buyers. Maybe it’s because I tried to slap it on while waiting on the platform for my morning train, but my formula had tiny bubbles and went on patchy. Dang it! Shown here in two coats with a freehand design I made with L’Oreal Colour Riche Too Dimensional? (Holiday 2013 Gold Dust collection) texture glitter.
