Blaming this one on you guys - Essie Bikini So Teeny


Soooo...after my last post on Essie Off the Shoulder, I talked to a couple of you lovely readers in the comments about Bikini So Teeny from the same collection. I had a bunch of expiring CVS Extrabucks, and decided to pick this up on a whim - thanks to the seed planted in my brain!


And I just want to say THANK YOU! I looveeee this polish! It's the perfect sky blue. It's a colour I will only wear in spring/summer - it's a great cool contrast to the warm coral tops I've been wearing, and also offers a nice counterpoint for casual hot pink T-shirts. The formula is fantastic to apply. There is some shimmer in the bottle, but I really don't see it on the nail - which is fine, I'm a creme finish girl!

So happy about this purchase - and thanks to coupons, it only cost me a couple dollars! What's your latest purchase? Tell me how you ended up liking it!

I love it, but i convinced myself that i didn't need it. And now it happens to be sold out everywhere, of course I gotta have it!:p

So funny - I remember commenting previously that I had no interest in this collection and you agreed. I wound up picking up the mini set because it was so cheap online and really liked a few of the colors (although not enough to pick up full size bottles), and it seems like you eventually caved in as well. I agree this is a really pretty color, and a nice break from all the brights I usually wear during the summer.Decent formula, too, for an almost-pastel.

I almost did not buy this one but the on line photos got me. I RARELY find any polish in powder blue that I can wear. They all turn my hands looking lobster red. They have to have a cornflower, lavender or some kind of hint of something in it to move it out of the chalky white powerder blue for me to pull it off. I can wear this one. I think it's got a touch of lavender in it making it just a hint of periwinkle that pulls it into a range I can wear. So wish I had a CVS close to me. I like when I am out of town and go in to some I have seen - the bigger ones have a lot of different brands and even some old long discontinued OPI shades.

I love this color, but I can't wear it. It's too cool toned for me. :(

I kept seeing it, and kept thinking I didn't need it. A friend had it, though, and I swatched it...and HAD TO HAVE IT. It's such a pretty shade!! My friend is very fair, pink-toned; it flatters her. I'm olive-y and dark, and it looks good on me, too! It looks fabulous on you, too, k2k! :)

I scored on Tuesday! I got a 3 pack of Essie polishes for $8.99 at Ross and 3 more Essie polishes for $3.99 a piece at TJ Maxx. I also got 2 Orly and 3 CG from the clearance bin at Sally's. I love saving money though it's not like I needed any of it :)

Ohh this shade is on it's way to me and I can't wait for it to arrive. Looks gorgeous on you!

I keep seeing and debating it. I think I'm going to have to give in and get it!

My latest purchase though were some Skin Food polishes that I picked up at the new store. I absolutely -loved- the red color on me. I'm not a red girl, but it was lovely and glowy and easy to apply! I look forward to trying it again when my nails are a bit longer and not so chip prone.

I looove Bikini so teeny and have worn it 3 times already since I got it, which is a lot considering how many polishes I have. It looks great on you!

Monica Williams said...

i keep seeing this around, but i'm hesitant to get it because it looks a lot like lapis of luxury from them. which i already own, and barely wear because it's so sheer. it is a very pretty color though.
