Can you tell I like Essie? It’s the little bottles. They’re so cute! I am a huge sucker for packaging.
Three coats of Turquoise & Caicos, I promise to get better at photos:
I spent a few weeks drooling over pictures of people wearing this one before tracking it down in the store. When I found it, I kind of hated it in the bottle. Surprise! It dries darker. I even freaked out a little on the first coat because it looked really yellow-green. Three coats (I still had VNL at two coats) and I’m in love. <3 <3 <3
Here it is compared to Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Sea Breeze:
While this one still falls into my turquoise category, it’s much darker. This Insta-Dri is thick – opaque in one coat showing brush texture – but the brush is kind of awesome. Wide and beveled. I feel like it’s quick to chip, though. Even with top and base coat, huge chunks of it come off after a day. Another thing? This color will stain, beware!
Is anyone a fan of Insta-Dri?
