This week’s nail polish is Essie’s Hide and Go Chic from Essie’s Spring 2014 collection.

Essie describes the color as a “covetable azure blue.” It’s a very pretty blue-green color. It applied well and was opaque after two coats of nail polish.

This week’s nail polish is Topshop’s Tidal.

It is a very light blue that leans a bit gray. I don’t have any other nail polish that is similar to Tidal. When I picked this color up I thought it might be too white or too light, but on the nails I am absolutely loving it and it is very wearable.

It is a bit of a thicker consistency, but it applied well and was opaque in two coats. I would definitely recommend this color!

Nail Polish of the Week #6 – Topshop Moonshine

This week’s nail polish is Topshop’s Moonshine. It’s a rose gold metallic polish. It’s a beautiful color and I really don’t have anything else in my nail polish collection that is very similar to it.

Moonshine applied well. It was opaque after one coat, but I did two thin coats to make it look a bit more even. It is a metallic polish so it does have somewhat visible brushstrokes, but I find that happens with every metallic polish I try.

Nail Polish of the Week #5 – Topshop Flamingo Coral

Flamingo Coral

 

This week’s nail polish is Topshop’s Flamingo Coral. It’s a bright coral, more on the pink side. The formulation is okay, but not great. It applied almost opaque in one coat, but did not apply evenly so multiple coats were needed. It’s just a little too thick, which makes it a difficult to apply.

The color is gorgeous though, it makes the difficulty in application worth it.

This will probably be the last time I wear coral nail polish this summer. While I love corlas, I like the darker colors I usually wear in the Fall and Winter even more. I can’t wait to start wearing them again!
