Up next on the Essie summer 2012 collection saga is Bikini So Teeny, which is the namesake polish for the collection.
This periwinkle blue colour (Essie describes it as a “cornflower blue”… whatever that means) is a stand out in the collection because it’s so different from the other creme shades (aside from maybe All Tied Up), it looks like a flat colour but with a more closer look there is a bit of white/silver shimmer in there.
I found the shimmer was a bit more noticable in the bottle than applied on the nails but it’s a nice touch nonetheless.
I have recently been obsessed with blues and greens lately so I was uber excited to try this one on. It’s a pretty, bold, and bright colour but it reminded me a bit of China Glaze Electric Beat, although this one is a bit more brighter.
If you are looking for a lighter blue I would pick this up. It’s not quite a baby blue but it gives the same effect. It really is gorgeous when applied.
Like all the other polishes I have tried from this collection, there was no streakiness when applied and I used two coats with Seche Vite’s basecoat underneath and OPI’s Top Coat on top.
Have you tried Essie’s Bikini So Teeny? If so, what were your thoughts?
