Oh hello, old friend. Without fail as summer starts to wind down I begin thinking longingly about Essie Turquoise & Caicos. I remember the color fondly and it came from my all time favorite Essie collection; the 2010 resort collection.
Sadly, as time passes, I seem to forget what a horrible formula this polish has. I inevitably become frustrated while applying Turquoise & Caicos but become determined to power through 4 carefully applied coats to achieve a lovely slightly dusty turquoise green color.
To this day, the 2010 resort collection display is my favorite Essie display. It was all around a gorgeous collection, but the formula of all the polishes I tried from the collection were lacking. But, if you’re willing to put the time and patience into a manicure with Turquoise & Caicos the end result is lovely.
Essie did add Turquoise & Caicos to their permanent line so it can be found anywhere Essie is sold.
There are a slew of swatches below the jump.
