Essie chocolate cake - A perfect alternative to a 'blackened red'

Another one of my christmas presents to myself is this essie polish in 'chocolate cake'. Chocolate cake is a deep reddish brown shade, which appears much deeper on the nails then in the bottle. I've been wanting a blackened red for a long time, but this brown toned red is much more flattering on my skin tone. It's opaque in two coats, but even one coat creates a nice wash of colour which is not streaky at all. My nails are prone to chipping, and seche vite doesnt seem to help with that and makes them chip much quicker, but i found this polish lasted about 3-4 days before i needed to repaint. Overall i love this colour and essie polishes are such great quality, that i'd recommend this to everyone looking for an alternative to a dark red.
