Nail of the Day: Essie First Timer

essie-first-timer

It’s been awhile, I know! Sorry for my little leave of absence, I had a death in the family and traveled a little bit. I am back now, so I promise I will make up for it!

Today’s nail of the day is a beauty. Essie’s First Timer is part of their Resort Collection which they usually release every year around this time. I absolutely love this color! It is definitely a bright green, but it has turquoise undertones, making it different than any other polish I own. Upon first seeing it, I thought it was similar to Essie Mojito Madness (click HERE to see), but this is lighter, brighter, and more blue. I personally really like Essie’s formula, and this one was no exception. It applied well and wore for a few days before chipping. I also purchased In the Cabana from this collection, but I haven’t tried it yet. When I do, I’ll be sure to post a picture here on the blog or on Instagram (username: SimpleBeautyYT).

What’s your favorite green nail polish?

Nail of the Day: Essie Mojito Madness

20120707-130748.jpg
So, my recent green nail polish obsession led me to pick up Mojito Madness by Essie. The formula for this polish was nice and easy to work with; not too thick or thin. On the picture above, I used 2 coats and a base and top coat. The color went on pretty opaque. I’m not sure what I think about this shade on me. In person, the color looked a little lighter in the bottle. On the nails, this looks like a Starbucks green. I think that I kind of like the shade on me, but not really loving it.
What do you think? Have you tried Mojito Madness yet?
