Big Spender is a rich, berry shade with a purple undertone. It has a fantastic formula and could even be worn in one coat if you were in a rush (though you really should always do two coats for a long lasting, and shiny mani). The formula is excellent, opaque, smooth and creamy. It is not overly thick and will not pool into cuticles. This polish has good staying power, lasting around 5 days with base and top coat. I find this to be standard with all Essie polishes however. This colour would be flattering on all skin tones, and especially striking on cooler tones! It is a rich colour, which looks expensive and dries down to a nice, shiny finish. It would be work appropriate whilst also being fun for a weekend or beach trip. It looks equally good as a pedi. I highly recommend this colour for anyone looking for a nice berry to add to their collection. Another hit from Essie.
