People are calling this a jelly or a jelly-creme, but my bottle was simply a creme. No jelly-like texture or finish with this one. The hue is described by Essie as "vintage blue denim" and I think they're pretty spot on. It's a dusky greyish cornflower blue hybrid that applies perfectly opaque in two coats. No smudges (except the ones I gave myself because I was too impatient to wait for them to dry completely before getting in my car), no streaks, no dragging.
I'm really loving the color -- I think it's a bit more suited to fall than spring/summer, but I'm definitely adding it to my permanent collection. What do you think of Truth or Flare?
