Essie Borrowed & Blue

Monday, June 24, 2013

Happy Monday! After much procrastination, I finally convinced my brother to go to Micheals with me today! *does a happy dance* I'll be picking up two melmers since there's a deal this week with buy one get one free on their storage items. I'll post an update on my Facebook page when I get them. Anyways, let's see what blue polish I have to show!

Essie Borrowed & Blue is a light pastel blue creme. Formula and application was good, though the first coat was a little streaky. I really like this color because it makes my hands look like I have a tan when I wear it. The brush on the Essie bottle is on the smaller side so it was hard getting enough polish on the brush when I was applying the color. I used two coats below.

I can see why this is a favorite among the beauty community. For a lighter shade, the formula was really nice compared to others I've tried. What do you think of this color?

  2. very pretty! i find the essie brushes to be a little small, too, most of the time. i like how delicate this looks.
