so here's another great find in the Clearout section of Shoppers - $2.00 Essie polishes! i got "Off The Shoulder" which is a part of the Summer 2012 Bikini So Teeny Collection. there are 6 polishes in this collection and i just realized i own half of them.
i agree with Essie that "919 Off The Shoulder" (13.5 mL) is a bold color but i don't think it is high enough on the temperature scale to be called a "hot pink"... to me, it's more of a medium pink.
it's definitely for those girly-girl days since i am reminded of Barbie every time i look at my nails.
i was surprised by how opaque this polish was - one coat provides almost full coverage but i needed another one since it was on the streaky side. it also has a very shiny finish to it - no need for a glossy topcoat!
the polish was chip-free for three days which is pretty good considering i did not use a topcoat.
thanks for reading! hope everyone's having a wonderful Thanksgiving!
