NOTD: Essie Bikini So Teeny

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?
