NOTD: Essie The More The Merrier

green polish title

Break out the margaritas because the more the merrier!

The last shade from the Essie summer 2013 Naughty Nautical collection saga is The More The Merrier, a juicy lime green colour that is the standout of the bunch.  Unlike the other shades, which all features shimmer, this one is a crème finish that screams summer.

When I received the colours from this collection this one stood out the most to me, so I decided to try the best for last.  Don’t get me wrong, I love all the colours but I tend to naturally gravitate towards bright, fun colours, so my heart was all a-flutter when my eyes landed on this beauty.

When I first saw this it reminded me greatly of both OPI’s Did It On ‘Em and Who The Shrek Are You, but when I compared all three, the OPI colours have more yellow undertones, whereas The More The Merrier has green undertones to it.  They aren’t exact dupes but they are similar.

I used two coats to get the colour opaque (although on my right hand I used three coats), with OPI Nail Envy as my base and Poshe as my topcoat.  One of my besties tried this shade out and it chipped for her a day she applied it.  For me, it has lasted three days thus far without chipping.


Overall, this is a unique colour for this collection because it’s so different.  It’s definitely a summer shade, and if you don’t own anything similar to this I would pick this one up for sure.
