NOTD: Essie All Tied Up

On to the last colour from Essie’s Bikini So Teeny summer 2012 collection, All Tied up is a rustic bronze colour with subtle gold shimmer.

This was the last colour I tried from the collection and the least excited about.  I feel that summer colours should be bright and fun and although this one is different with that hint of gold shimmer, it’s not my favourite from the collection.  All Tied Up is, in my opinion, the most plain out of all the colours.  

The good thing about this colour is that it can easily transcend into any season.  I would definitely wear this shade in the fall or spring and it’s a great subtle shade for the more serious events in life, like a business trip (which I’m actually wearing it for).

As for application, the shade went on very nicely, becoming quite opaque after two coats.  You don’t really notice the gold shimmer once the colour is applied (well you can if you look super close).  Like the other colours in the collection, this one wasn’t streaky.  As always, I finished off my mani with a coat of OPI Top Coat.

Gold shimmer

I feel like if there was one colour to skip in this collection, this would be it.  The gold shimmer makes the shade different from others out there, but I just don’t feel that it compares to the other polishes in the collection which are all bright and fun and summery. Don’t get me wrong, it’ a pretty colour, I just feel like this isn’t the right polish for this particular collection.
