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!  :)
