NOTD - Essie Guilty Pleasures

Old news, really old: Essie Guilty Pleasures. I think it's a part of Spring-08 collection. Anyway, here is my attempt in a cheerful spring mani:

Nice color, guys.

First, it has a jelly finish - kinda see-through. Pain in the neck to apply, but if you enjoy a "morning toast with marmalade" look, I'd say go for it. I did 3 sloppy coats; it's still a bit uneven.

Second, it's not a typical pinkey-pink. Rather, Guilty Pleasures is a mix between a subtle coral and a vivid neon pink. Here is another pic, hopefully showing neon side a bit better:

I'm itching to take this mani off, but it's just my aversion to pink.
