I have a thing for Barbie pinks. I have way more than I can count in pink shades of lipsticks (I actually call it my signature shade), but surprisingly I don’t have a lot of bright pinks for nail polish. I’m more of a pale pink or neon pink kind of girl. So I was excited when I got Essie’s Off The Shoulder because it’s really one of those staple pink kind of colours.
Brand new from their summer 2012 collection, Off The Shoulder is a hot pink shade that goes with any skin tone and is just so irresistible in the bottle. Painted on I find it’s not as neon as one may think but it’s a colour that is so universal that I think it could go with any kind of outfit.
I used Seche Vite base coat with OPI’s Top Coat on top. All I needed with two coats to make it opaque. I also didn’t notice any streaking, which Essie is notoriously known for.
I think that if there is one colour from this collection that is a must buy, I would probably say that this is it. I love all the shades, but Off The Shoulder is one of those colours that you can wear in any season, with any outfit, to any occasion. It’s just so pretty when applied on and you can either rock it subtly or loudly.
Chase liked Off The Shoulder too. He likes Barbie pinks.. even though he’s a boy.
Have you tried Off The Shoulder? What were your thoughts?
