Essie Dive Bar

Here’s my current polish, Essie Dive Bar, pictured here at a few days old:

 

Green/blue nail polish

full sun

 

This was three of the most irritating coats of polish I have ever put on. I was trying to be really careful too, letting each coat dry for several minutes before applying the next. It seems to dry as you apply it, so that you can’t overlap at all or you’ll wipe off the layer below. It reminded me of dry-erase pens. Other people have reported an easy two coats, so who knows.

shade

It’s hard to capture the duochrome on this one. As I type, it’s almost a navy blue, but in most bright light settings it’s a dark base with bright green/teal shimmer. When twilight comes around, it’ll look more like a a blue/teal.

 

indoors

This terribly blurry picture shows the bluer indoor shade. The purple shows up in the bottle but I find myself waving my hands in front of my face trying to find it on the nail. Is it just me or do duochromes exist so people can laugh at us for flailing about while staring at our nails?

I’ll keep this polish even though it’s scary to apply. I’m optimistic that my photography AND nail polish application skills will improve!  Also cuticles, and mysterious hand redness, and funky nail shape…
