Essie "Turquoise & Caicos"
Hi everyone! I am home from vacation now and I can't believe I have to go back to work tomorrow. I wish I could still be in the mountains! But anyways, today's nail polish is Essie's "Turquoise & Caicos."
"Turquoise & Caicos" is a lovely aquamarine colored nail polish. Formula wise, "Turquoise & Caicos" was good and applied pretty well. However I did have to wipe the brush almost empty as to not flood my nail beds. After two coats the polish was not at all opaque and you could still see my nail. In terms of chipping, I was able to wear "Turquoise & Caicos" for only only one day because it did not look great on my nails. (That being said when I applied a third coat it looked and wore much better!)
In a previous post I compared Essie's "Turquoise & Caicos" to a few other aquamarine polishes to see if there were any dupes.
Overall I have mixed feelings about Essie's "Turquoise & Caicos." I absolutely adore the color but it was annoying that even after thee coats there were still some visible streak marks. I will probably stick to wearing the OPI dupe for "Turquoise & Caicos" that I have., however I would be willing to give this polish another go.
