Essie Bikini So Teeny

Happy Monday! I stopped by Target the other day and they already had the Summer 2012 Essie collection out, even though my press info says it isn't due out until June! Of course, seeing the new shades totally made my day. I exercised my willpower though and did not purchase any myself, but DBF was nice enough to buy one for me. :) I let him pick the color and he chose Bikini So Teeny.

Bikini So Teeny is a really pretty polish with a really annoying name. Despite the silly moniker, I do like the polish itself. It is a bright cornflower blue, with some white in the base but not enough to make it a pastel. There is also some subtle shimmer, but I had trouble getting it to come out to play. Here I am wearing 3 thin coats, but I think you could get away with 2!


See the shimmer in the bottle?


So... even though this color has a stupid name and shimmer that just doesn't show up, I *still* really like it. It's a unique shade of blue and it makes my hands look very tan. Plus it was a gift, which makes me like it a little extra.

  2. This is a gorgeous blue!! It's a shame that the shimmer is pretty much invisible though.
