Essie Disappointment

At a recent stop at Target, I noticed some new Essie colors.  At first glance I wasn't that interested because it looked like a pastel purple that I already owned.  Then I picked it up and noticed these pretty little, different colored flakies in the polish.  That got me and it came home with me, along with a couple others that stood out.

First, 2 coats of Essie To Buy or Not to Buy.  Here is the big disappointment...I can't see the flakies!!!! Major bummer!



Next, I added a dotting design using Essie Pink-a-boo, with pretty flakies, and tour de finance. I won't go into detail with these because the dots don't give a good picture of the colors.  However, all 3 colors do look really nice together! Very spring-y.





And 2 coats of NYC.

  2. I hate it when the beauty from the bottle doesn't transfer onto the nails. Then it kinda loses its magic for me. :/
    I really like the dotty mani though. :)

  9. This is so beautiful!! Sorry to hear about the polish being a pain. I hate it when they look different on the nail than in the bottle (unless it looks better on the nail ^-^).
