Essie Absolutely Shore

Hey guys! Thanks so much for leaving me your blogs on the last post! I have a lot of reading to do now :)

I love the weekend! We went to Woodbury Commons on Sunday and I picked up two pairs of sandals from the Cole Haan outlet. I also picked up two bottles of MAC polish from the CCO, after waffling for about an hour. I'm not huge on MAC products, but seeing MAC Bad Fairy by its lonesome self in my stash really bothered me for some reason! I'll be posting swatches of the two I purchased soon, along with a long-winded story about the SAs at that CCO.

For now, here's another polish from the Essie Braziliant collection. I was sure it would give me lobster hands, but then I bought it anyways. Turns out, it is not so bad! I love it when that happens!

Essie Absolutely Shore - The formula is rather thin, though, and needed 3 coats to be opaque. While it is very white, it doesn't look nearly as stark on me as something like Borrowed and Blue.


I couldn't think of a comp to do with this one, since it's the "whitest" green I own. Even looking at it some more, I'm not entirely sure it's just green in there!

This week is short for me, and I can't wait for the long weekend! DBF and I are driving back up to Canada to see our folks. I'm deciding what I need to bring back in our trunk. So far I have decided on more Joe Fresh polishes and a big box of Coffee Crisp. Any suggestions, my canuck readers?

  3. Haha, I'm wearing this right now. I had the same fear about lobster hands when I bought it but it turned out pretty good on me too :) I had huge problem with the formula but I think it's due to the weather.
