Essie’s Bikini So Teeny is a beautiful light blue with some shimmer and it’s been one of my favorite spring/summer shades. I’ve been testing this out since May and I truly love the color, but wish the formula was a little different. When applying this color, I found that the formula was quite thin and one coat looked terrible. If I was in a hurry, this nail polish would not be able to do the job. I let the first coat dry and then reapplied another coat… it started to look a little better. The third coat worked some magic and I was satisfied with the pigmentation.Β In direct sunlight, you can actually see the shimmer in the bottle and it’s very subtle on your nails.IMG_5009The nail polish tends to last for about a week without chipping as long as I’ve applied a base coat and a top coat. Even though I have to put in a little extra work to get the pigmentation I want on my lines, I really do love it. It really is perfect for the warmer nights and since I live in San Diego, it’s safe to say that this nail polish reminds me of our baby blue skies. Love, love!
