Essie - Absolutely Shore

My latest nail polish experiment involved a polish I was verrrrry curious about. I had been dying to test out Essie's Absolutely Shore (from their summer 2011 collection); however, I was a little let down. Since it is so light, it took 3 coats for acceptable coverage and I even then, it wasn't fully opaque in places. AND, most importantly, it looks icky on my skin tone. Because my skin is pale and a little reddish (oh, who am I kidding?? A LOT reddish), it just did not jive with my skin. Frankly, it looked bad. I probably won't be using this one again anytime soon... I just wasn't all that impressed or in love with the color on my skin tone. Chalk another point up for the tan girls of the world, this polish is meant for you!
