Essie Jumpin' Junkanoo

Jumpin' Junkanoo is one of my favorite pinks. It was released with the 2007 Essie Bahamas collection. The base is a cool medium pink with really pretty subtle pink shimmer. Something about this shade seems so fresh and tropical. I wasn't all that impressed with the rest of the collection, but they got it right with this one. This is three coats, no topcoat.



The formula is odd, in that it's not a jelly, but it has jelly tendencies. In other words, it's a little on the sheer side and needs three coats to get to opacity. The finish is also jelly-like, which may be why it looks so fresh. It's really beautiful and my pics don't do it justice.

I've been to the Bahamas twice and I love the fact that many of the buildings there are pink, including the Parliament Building below:

Here I am in front of one of the hotels:

It's such a beautiful set of islands with a rich history and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I can't wait to go back one day.

Happy painting!
