[Essie] Dive Bar

This has been in my drafts for more than two years. 😯 No idea why it has taken me so long to post this, since Dive Bar is actually such a beautiful colour! This is an iridescent dark green with hints of teal and purple, as well as shimmer, really pretty for this time of the year.

Although these photos were taken in June 2012 ❗ , I am sure I used to coats back then. 😉

[Essie] Pretty Edgy

Happy St Patrick’s Day! 🙂 Regarding this occasion, I was browsing my drafts, and this is the oldest unpublished (so far) green I found: Pretty Edgy. Here’s the mini version.

I’ve never tried this as my actual mani, just swatched it, admitting that I prefer Mojito Madness (which would be great for St Patrick’s Day too). Two coats shown below, and maybe I should give Pretty Edgy a real try.

Guess when I took these pictures … it’s been almost two years ago, May 2012. 😯

[Essie] Cute As A Button

This is Cute As A Button; initially, I planned to post Super Bossa Nova (since this is the shade I’m wearing right now), but then realised that I had already done so in May. Somehow I ended up with Cute As A Button, probably best described as pink with a tiny bit of coral.

It’s a great summer shade, I really like it, also for its brightness. Shown below is two coats, and photos were taken in June 2012 [sic!]. 🙄
