Mani Monday: Ready For Summer

I'm linking up my latest manicure with Heather Dawn and Heather for their Mani Monday series.  This week, I chose an Essie polish that was one of the more popular colors last summer, Turquoise and Caicos.  I have loved it every time I have seen it featured on blog posts and finally bought my own bottle.  This was my first bottle of Essie polish and I found it to be kind of thin and runny.  I needed three coats of polish to get the coverage I desired.

I love the color and this polish will definitely be a staple of my summer manicures.  Have you ever tried it?  Have you found other Essie polishes to be really thin and watery?


  1. Such a pretty color. I have seen it used before and I think I need it!

  2. I bought mine from Amazon and saved a couple of dollars. I also recently saw it at Ulta. It is a very pretty color!

  3. I love that color as well, but after what you said about it being watery I'm not sure. I have the Essie Armed and Ready one and it is normal thought so maybe just that particular color.

  4. I've never tried Essie but from what I've seen on different blogs, it is a favorite brand.

    BTW, thanks for the tip for "polishing" up my manicure. hehe


  5. So pretty!!

    Thanks SO much for linking up with Mani Monday!!


  6. I have been lusting after this color for a WHILE, I got a comparable one from Loreal and it's so similar that now I'd feel dumb if I bought the Essie version, but it's EVERYWHERE -- it's like it's haunting me! :) Great post!

  7. I have this color and love it! I'm visiting from Mani Monday, can't wait to see more! ;)
