|Essie Turquoise & Caicos - indoor lighting|
So this isn't a new color, Essie Turquoise & Caicos was part of the 2010 Resort Collection. Regardless, it is one of my favorite summer colors, especially on my toes! As with all my Essie polishes, application is a pain and I needed 4 coats to get rid of the visible nail line and to give the polish a uniform finish. I can overlook that only because the color is just beautiful, part jelly / part creme. This was 4 coats of T&C followed by 1 coat of nubar Diamont.
After 2 days I added Julep Melissa over the top. It made it look a little like Zoya Zuza, which I have yet to get my hands on. I can't believe how 1 coat of Julep Melissa just made this color shine. It was brilliant in the sun. I added some additional nail art on this combo, so more to come!
