What is a Raspberry?

Wikipedia says: The raspberry or hindberry is the edible fruit of a multitude of plant species in the genus Rubus, most of which are in the subgenus Idaeobatus; the name also applies to these plants themselves. Raspberries are perennial, with woody stems.

   But in my case it is a bottle of nail polish.  I'll say that essie is quickly growing one.  This is my second essie manicure (see the first one here) and I must say I'm loving it.  You know how I know I'm loving it? Because I have put this polish on twice in a row now!  WHAT?!?!? Crazy I know.  I was just thinking that since I usually do fingers and toes and since toes last soooooo long that it was a shame to keep changing totally perfect toes.  Also, with all of my other polishes so far I have had to take them off by the third day due to chipping  - but this one has lasted until the 5th day each time (note that the pics were taken on the second or third day)!  There is some tip wear (See! I'm learning the jargon.) of course and  now I have some latex paint on them but they are really holding up because I am NOT gentle with my hands - unless I need to be ;)
