Essie: Turquoise amp Caicos

5 years ago

It would seem that I have a lot of polishes that are very well known, but haven`t been posted up to my blog! This is one of them. This is the very popular Turquoise & Caicos! I have posted about it as part of nail designs or color comparisons, but never featured it all on its own! Turquoise & Caicos was part of Essie`s 2010 Summer Resort Collection. It is a beautiful....well...turquoise color! HA! I would classify this as a jelly finish. It has that fun squishy appearance to it. I am a huge fan of cremes and jelly finished polishes. Colors in this family were very popular a couple of years ago, but i`m still sporting them often. I can`t get enough of the minty shades. In my opinion, they are still a perfect color for the spring and summer. Heck, I wear them in the colder months, too. It is just one of my favorite colors of polish. While Turquoise & Caicos is absolutely stunning, it is also an absolute PITA as far as application. I think that is why this polish isn`t rated as high as I could be in places like MakeupAlley. You have to be patient and work with this one. The formulation of it is quite thin and if you aren`t careful it will spill into the cuticles and flood around the nails. Because it is so thin, it can also be patchy and streaky. You have to apply very thin layers and build up the color. A lot of people have said it takes them 3-4 coats. In these photos I am wearing two. BUT, my first coat was very thin and then I always do my second coat a bit on the thick side so I don`t have to keep making passes over the nails. This is just my preference when working with this polish. It can get messy doing it that way, so I suggest taking the thinner coats route. If you can manipulate the polish a bit and keep it from melting to the edges, then sure, try a bit thicker of a final coat. Turquoise & Caicos has long since been added to the core collection of Essie, so you`ll have no problems (or shouldn`t) finding it in their displays. I see it at nearly every store that sells Essie polishes. -First 2 photos taken inside in natural sunlight. Second 2 photos taken outside in direct sunlight
