My nail stash consist of many, many pink varnishes! Probably 3 handfuls of pink lacquers, and most are of medium to deep tones, just like this one by Essie, called Super Bossa Nova! This is probably my first Essie feature by the way (thanks to my sister.... again!).
Unlike my other cremes, Super Bossa Nova is a deeper pink which sides with fuschia/magenta tones and is infused with fine fuschia shimmers.
It applies with a lesser glossy finish, somewhat dull. I wished it'd apply to be more glossy, as I am rarely bothered to apply my own top coat!
The formula is very opaque, which honestly didn't surprise me, after all the raves within the beauty community! I could hit opacity easily within two coats, but I did find the brush to be a tad too small for my nails. The brush is probably half the size of OPI's brushes (along with many other lacquers I have within my collection) and as you could tell, I have really large nails so it does take me that extra effort. @_@
But overall, although I have nothing against this shade, I feel like there's no interesting spice to it. Sad to say, but it's just another pink in my collection really. Not very interesting, and I don't quite like the fuschia shimmers that's paired with it.
Oh well, since I'm done with using you Super Bossa Nova, time to return you back to my sister's room! As for my readers, will make sure to update you with other Essie shades my sister owns! Hah.. (fingers crossed that she's not reading this).
