NOTD: Essie - Bikini So Teeny


A few posts ago I showed you a little Essie haul that I recently did. So when I was getting ready for work and I had to choose a polish to wear, I knew straight away it had to be one of my new Essie. That's where I hit a brick wall, what colour should I choose? That's probably the hardest thing I find about painting my nails, I can never choose what colour and I sit and ponder for ages before finally deciding on one. So being that it's actually been warm this week I went with 'Bikini So Teeny'.



It's the most gorgeous sky blue / periwinkle colour. Perfect for the spring/summer season and definitely one for the fingers and toes. Imagine this on your toes in a pair of sparkly flip flops, amazing right? It has a subtle shimmer in it which is the hardest thing to capture on camera. I always find it hard to describe nail polishes but the word that comes to mind when I look at this is creamy (crazy, I know!). I'm not sure if this shade is still available as it was part of the 2012 Summer Collection but after a quick search it still comes up on the Superdrug website so try on their if all else fails. They cost £7.99 but if your looking for a cheaper alternative then try Barry M's 'Prickly Pear' from their Gelly Hi Shine range as it's the closest I've found so far.

(Please excuse the poor paint job, it has been on my nails for 4 days with no top coat as I need to buy a new one!)

Do you own this colour? Or have you found any similar colours?
