Bikini So Teeny.
Fragrance Direct as it was only 1.99£. Compared to the 7.99€ on my local stand (which FYI didn't even have this shade) it's a total bargain. 'Bikini So Teeny' is a shade which on first glance you think is just your everyday light opaque blue with a slight purple undertone. But it's not. It has these lovely little speckles of shimmer in there too which adds a real pop. Compared to how the shimmer looks in the bottle it's actually quite subtle on your nails. Depending on how your nails catch the light it can go from full on shimmer to barely there, which i liked cause it kind of reminded me of those retro shiny game cards (you know what I'm on about). When it comes to application I've always been quite generous with my first coat of nail polish so really only needed two coats to get the full effects of this shade. I know others have had to apply quite a few but ultimately I think it depends on you and whether you apply light coats. I was super impressed with the longevity of this in comparison to my other 'Essie' ones. I applied it the Tuesday it arrived and saw no signs of chippage till 5 days later. Day 7 was when I caved and eventually cleared it all off. But I mean isn't that incredible? I've never had a nail polish that's been that resistant. Basically this is my number one nail polish. I know I'm going to be wearing it all through summer if not for the shimmer but for the longevity. Have any of you tried this? What did you think?
