NOTW: Essie absolutely shore 140212

5 years ago

This polish was next in line for me to try out. I`m trying to take turns in doing designs and normal manis, but right now I`m lost for ideas. Any simple design suggestions for me? *Puppy eyes*

Ahh where do I start with this one. Just by looking at it I knew I`d have to fight with this one just to make it apply better. Yes it did give me a little bit of trouble but not like the other ones. You`d know why later. Essie describes this as a <em>`a soft sea foam green`</em>. I`d say it`s a fair statement, it`s real soft. In some lightings I even mistake this as blue. It`s a nice colour, I do like it because unlike some other light cremes it doesn`t make my skin look any darker.

I was expecting a more runny formula but no! Normal consistency. I ended up doing 4 coats though. Usually 3 is the limit but the first 3 coats was beyond thin and streaky; I guess it was because I wasn`t used to the formula so I wasn`t loading the right amount on the brush. By 3 it still didn`t look fully opaque so I topped it with one last thick coat and almost solved everything. There was just patches here and there not covered that I couldn`t care for anymore.

The formula for this one is certainly different from what I`ve experienced before with Essie polishes. I`ve had this on for 4-5 days already and there`s only minor tipwear, not bad. I was planning to take this off earlier but I haven`t had time plus I didn`t know what my next design was going to be about.

P.s After see some ladies here haul the Breaking dawn DVD guess what? LOL I had to watch it myself. Ahh it`s so amazingly beautiful and slightly gross-ish at the end. DANG! Why did I have to watch it?! Now I can`t wait for part 2. 9 months away :(

What do you guys think of my NOTW? Do you own this polish? Or anything like it?
