Essie "Absolutely Shore"
Hi everyone! I can't believe that July is nearly over! So since I wore a really bright color last week I decided to tone it down this week and go for a pastel color! I went digging through my collection and found Essie's "Absolutely Shore" which is a very pale green and with its beachy name is perfect for Summer!
So Essie's "Absolutely Shore" is a pastel so I figured I was in for some streaking, but nothing prepared me for how difficult it really was. "Absolutely Shore" has a very watery formula and was difficult to control, which caused a ton of streaking on the first coat. However the second coat, while still difficult to handle because of the watery formula, did even out the nail polish a bit. My next problem with Absolutely Shore" was that even with a quick drying topcoat (I use Orly "Sec'N'Dry") I could NOT get the nail polish to every really dry. And while I waited and waited and waited for it to dry many nails got dinged and smudged. It looked so horrible I barely wore this nail polish for 12 hours before I took it off! So that was definitely very disappointing!
Overall Essie's "Absolutely Shore" was a major letdown and I wish it had lasted longer and had a better formula! The color is a really pretty pale green but the streaking made it very difficult to enjoy. And as for why this nail polish wouldn't dry, I am really not sure what is up with that but it makes me sad because it means I probably won't be able to ever really wear this nail polish!
Thanks for reading my blog! :)
