I finally got my hands on this amazing "Tiffany" blue polish! I'm wearing two thin coats of Essie "Turquoise & Caicos" in the photos. The color is amazing, and the staying power is awesome!
The formula is very thin, and applies a little bit streaky in just two coats. Essie brushes are very "skinny" so it makes applying polish a tad bit harder than OPI polishes. A third coat would help even out the polish, however it makes the turquoise shade darker and less "fresh." I know this because I painted Vannie's nails with three coats, and it didn't look as pretty as it does with two coats...sorry Van!! lol
One of my friends says this is THE best Essie shade. I still want to find Essie "Mint Candy Apple." Does anyone know if it's been discontinued? I've had a hard time finding it at Target, and the local beauty supply shops. I usually buy Essie for around $7.79-$8 at Target, but I know you can get them for $3-4 at beauty supply shops.
I suggest giving each coat complete drying time before applying the next to avoid the "bald" spots.
The base coat was made for Turquoise & Caicos!
Seche Vite is still my go to top. : )
I do want to try the Butter London top coat once I finish my latest bottle of Seche.
You should get this color if you don't already have it in your nail polish collection. ^_^
In other news, I had another relaxing weekend at the boyfriend's parents house. I always enjoy spending time with his family, and seeing his cousin's kids. They're ages 4, 5, and 7. They're super savvy iPhone users, and have introduced me to a few new game apps such as Glow Hockey, and Bubble Bust. lol
I'm also reading Fifty Shades of Freed now. :D It's so fun to discuss the book series with friends!! :D
I thought this e-card was pretty funny! Plus, it matches the turquoise theme of the blog post!
