|Essie in Absolutely Shore|
PHP 400, from Polish Please
Just recently, I found a super secret spot in Rockwell where they have an entire display of Essie nail polishes. They have a pretty solid selection of Essie polishes including the favorites like Absolutely Shore, Bikini So Teeny, Fiji and more.
I've been eyeing Absolutely Shore for ages and was on my never ending list of nail polishes to buy when I'm out of the country. (To those of you who don't know, there are no official distributors of Essie here in the Philippines so they're really hard to get!) Essie describes this color as a soft sea foam green, which I think pretty much captures this pastel shade perfectly. Makes me wanna go on a road trip to the beach!
It took me three coats to achieve this look on my nails but you can definitely go on with just two. It has the standard long and narrow brush which is a bit of a pain, but I can live. As usual, I started off with Sally Hansen's Continuous Treatment Strength and finished off with Max Factor's Glossfinity, an amazing combo for a long lasting chip-free manicure.
What do you think of this color? What's your favorite from Essie?
