Swatch: Essie Bikini So Teeny

Just a quick little post this morning - another swatch of my Essie 2012 summer collection that arrived this week. Bikini So Teeny has been on my wish list for quite a while - it's such a gorgeous cornfloury summery baby blue with a very slight shimmer in it (which you can see in the top two photos below).  Application was great, though needed 3 coats to get to complete opacity.  Quick drying. Overall really pleased with this polish and think it's likely to become one of my summer favourites.

Please excuse the slight green twinge to some of the skin around my finger nails - it was what was left behind by Essie's Mojito Madness!

Have you got Bikini So Teeny? What manis have you done with it? Leave me a link in the comments below so I can come and have a look!

  2. Such a pretty color! I just wish it was a little teeny bit more purple instead of blue. Your nails are so PERFECT! How do you keep them from breaking with how many times you change your nail color a week?

    1. That's so sweet of you! For some reason my nails are quite strong at the moment (but honestly, it seems to change from week to week!) - I make sure that when I take them off I use nail oil (with jojoba in it) to keep them strong and moisturise whenever I can. I know acetone is super bad for them, but I can't be dealing with acetone-free polish remover, I just don't have the time in my life for that!
