essie – Bikini So Teeny

Not so long ago, I told Alli I really wanted Mojito Madness – the name is just so cute! But I knew I’d never wear it, so I told her she had to get it and I chose Bikini so Teeny for my polish from essie’s Summer 2012 collection. Honestly, when it comes down to it I’m really just a sucker for essie blues: Midnight Cami, Borrowed & Blue, One Day without Blues, Lapis of Luxury, and Shelter Island – I just can’t say no.

I love this color – it’s a light blue that leans every so slightly towards periwinkle – essie describes Bikini So Teeny as a sparkling, cornflower blue – who am I to argue with that?

My only complaint with this polish is it’s formula – 4 coats. I just feel that at this point I have so many other light blues that are one, two, even 3 coaters that I’d turn to before this one – don’t get me wrong – I love the look, I just rarely have the patience for 4 coats. But…. the name is cute so that settles the score as far as I’m concerned.

Smile!

  1. Funny, that’s the first thing I thought when I saw the pic, really lovely, I wonder how many coats. It’s so nice, like the flowers that sprinkle through the fields this time of year. Four coats? Agh! Was it worth it? I don’t have a single Essie in my collection, except for a couple of topcoats. Did this color wear well, at least?

  2. Such a pretty color!

What do you think?
