Essie Turquoise & Caicos

Essie Turquoise & CaicosEssie’s Summer 2010 Resort collection is finally here! I was so disappointed in the Spring collection, but Essie has redeemed themselves.

Turquoise & Caicos is a gorgeous turquoise creme. I could never get into the mint green trend, but I love this polish. It’s a pretty pastel for the Spring and Summer yet looks good on me (NW15), which is quite the accomplishment for a pastel.

The only negative of this polish is the application. The formula is very thin. I had to use 4 coats to get opaque coverage, and as you can probably tell, it got a little thick on the sides of my nails. I think with slightly more careful application I can avoid having that problem again.

Even though I had to use 4 coats, this dried fairly quickly. I decided to forego a top coat and was pleasantly surprised by the shiny finish of this polish.

I don’t have any dupes in my collection. Icing Laura’s Fav is a similar color just with glitter 🙂

The official release date for this collection is May 1st, but both Ulta’s near me have started selling it.
