Re-discovering Essie - Bikini So Teeny

Hi Guys,

Before I went away I chose 3 Essie nail polishes to take to Greece with my, these were: 

  • A Blue shade Essie polish - Bikini So Teeny
  • A Purple shade Essie polish - To Buy Or Not To Buy
  • A Red/Coral shade Essie polish - Camera
I feel as though I have "re-discovered" these nail polishes and re-discovering does help us as bloggers to save money/ to get our moneys worth in the products that we purchase.

 Bikini So Teeny is from the 2012 Essie Summer Collection. 
To Buy Or Not To But is from Navigate Her Spring 2012 Collection.
 Camera is from Essie's Summer Poppy-Razzi Collection.

Bikini So Teeny

The pastel baby blue colour has an easy applicator as the brush is flat and gives a easy coverage of the nail. (shown below after just one coat)

However the glitter particles that you can see in the bottle are not transferred or appear on the nail which can be disappointing although in the light it does add to a pretty shine amongst the polish. The final shade of blue after two coats is that of a clear sky blue with a soft lilac undertone. The nail varnish dries rather quickly and doesn't leave any streaks. 

Essie's 2012 Summer Collection including Bikini So Teeny can still be purchased online at prices lower than Essie's current collection prices so why not have a look online and see what you can find. 

To Buy Or Not To But is from Navigate Her Spring 2012 Collection and Camera is from Essie's Summer Poppy-Razzi Collection will both be featured in their own blog post following the structure and content of this one so make sure you look out for them! 

Do you own any Essie Polish? What is your favourite Essie Collection?
Have you "Re-discovered" any polish or beauty products this Summer?
Let us know
Love B

  1. I have too many nail polishes and lipsticks, I need to do the same as you and "re-discover" as you call it.
    Brilliant Idea, I like this colour by Essie and if I can get it cheaper than their usual its a MUST BUY!
