Essie Bikini So Teeny: Review & Swatch

Essie Bikini So Teeny
This beautiful cornflower blue makes me think of squinting up at the sky while sunbathing on the beach… in a Bikini So Teeny, naturally. The silver shimmer is only apparent in direct light (see top left pic in sunlight), but adds an iridescent glow that sets this apart from other pastel blues I’ve tried. It took 3 coats for a perfect application, though I could probably have got away with two.

It’s a touch cooler and brighter than Nails Inc Bluebell; softer and less turquoise than Barry M Blueberry Ice cream - (see links to posts using both). I’ll swatch them side by side one day. Bikini So Teeny is my favourite of the three, though Bluebell is ridiculously close… if you have it, I’d give this one a miss.
