Hey Everyone! Thank you for tuning in as always!
Today’s blog post is a nail polish review, part of my Mani Monday series 🙂 Enjoy!
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. In direct sunlight, you can actually see the shimmer in the bottle and it’s very subtle on your nails.The 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!
PROS: beautiful color, long-wearing, perfect for summertime and vacations.
CONS: thin formula, subtle shimmer barely appears on the nails.
FTC: This nail polish was purchased by me. I am not obligated to write this review, nor do I get paid to do so– I speak the truth and nothing but the truth. Thank you for reading. Xo!
