Reader Request: Essie Splash of Grenadine

For KyaLyn.

I was on the fence about this color and I still am. I don't hate it and I could learn to love it but I can't see myself reaching for it often. Some swatches make it look bright pink but it's not. It's a muted pink/purple creme that I call orchid because when someone says it's an orchid color this is the color I see in my head. Wonderful formula and only needed two coats.

It kind of reminds me of candy you would get as a wedding favor. Mm, candy! So I added glitter - Misa Confection Section to be exact. Pretty!

i love this color as well, even though i am not usually into "girly" colors! and were you thinking of jordan almonds??? =)

This reminds me of that Nina Ultra Pro I tried out, I'm just not that much into this kind of pink - but it's much prettier with the glitter on top!

Not jordan almonds but minty candy. I have no idea what the candy is but it is usually wedding like.

Glitter makes lots of things better!

Hmm...I really wanted to love this color, but now seeing swatches, I think I'll skip. Thanks for doing this.

Kat - Thanks! I enjoy your blog as well.

KyaLyn - I was/am unsure so I got a mini bottle. Glad I could help either way!
