I love Essie Splash of Grenadine because it’s bright and fun while not being overly obnoxious. It’s a really unique colour – not quite fully pink, but not quite purple either. On my nails, I think it looks a lot more pink than it does in some other swatches online. Essie describes it as a “playful magenta pink”.
Essie Splash of Grenadine is a great consistency; it applies easily and dries extremely smooth and shiny. I added a top coat of Seche Vite for maximum shine, though I don’t think it’s really necessary to use a top coat with this one. It was pretty opaque in two coats, but I added a third coat just to make sure!
