Nails: Bright Blue Essie


Essie Shelter Island
This is such a gorgeous bright blue. I was in a bit of a hurry when I was painting them, so I know it looks a tad messy around the cuticles, but oh well. Anyway, this is truly a unique color. As for the formula, it looked a little uneven when I first started applying...like maybe the polish was a bit thick, but the second coat applied perfectly and evened everything out. The unevenness could have been attributed to my base coat which may not have been completely dry. Anyway, I've been wearing it for a few days now and no chipping issues!

  1. i LOVE this color. I painted my nails with it the day after I got it. It's sooo pretty, everyone else loved it too (except my grandmother, who hates any nailpolish that doesn't look "natural" haha. silly grandmothers)

  16. I have a question about this color. I bought it and a couple other polishes a week ago. I wanted to try this because it looked like such a bright, pretty color. But idk if the lighting here is different or the photo makes it a bit brighter, but on my nails it looked closer to the Shower Together color than bright blue...still bright and pretty, but not as blue as I thought. Still love it though!, just wondering if anyone else's turned out that way?
