POLISHED: Essie Nail Polish in "Off The Shoulder"

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!

    1. i am not sure! i think it really depends on the Shoppers - i think the majority of the items in the Clearout section vary from store to store

  2. Oh no I shouldn't have read this because now I want to walk over to my Pharmaprix (shoppers) and see if they have any Essie on sale. Hmm perhaps tonight and that price its great. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. i've a few Essie polishes on sale at 2 locations... but i also visit like 5 others and they do not...
      hopefully yours does!

    2. i've *seen* a few... missed a word there!

  3. That is a gorgeous colour. I think the price makes it even prettier! ;)

    1. i feel the same way! getting a good deal makes it that much better!
