Availability: This was another one my mom sent me from the States. This collection is available there at CVS, Walgreens, Target, Ulta, and Nordstrom just to name a few. You can also find it on Amazon. Here in Germany this collection was briefly available at DM but they have since sold out in my area. I recently heard that in the UK you can find Essie, including the Bikini So Teeny collection, at John & Ginger. As far as Canada is concerned I cant really say where you could find this color/collection exactly. However, if you know please let me know by commenting down below.

My Two Cents: I absolutely love the bright pastel blue color of Bikini So Teeny, but I feel as though the shimmer is for the most part lost. As far as the formula is concerned, it was a big let down and I very nearly gave it a Poor rating. The only thing that prevented me from giving it a lower rating was that the third coat helped save the day a little. I found Bikini So Teeny to be really thin and runny making it difficult to work with. It also applied very patchy with quite noticeable bald spots and streaks. Its such a beautiful color and I really wanted to love it but I was just so incredibly disappointed in the formula, especially coming from Essie.
