Essie Bikini So Teeny

This is how bad my nail polish addiction is, I see something and then my mind relates it to a nail polish color.  Last week, I was sitting by the pool at my daughters swimming lesson, I was showing my youngest daughter the clouds in the sky.  I looked up and thought the sky was a beautiful blue, just like Essie Bikini So Teeny.  Yep, that's what first came to mind.  Of couse that afternoon I went and picked up a bottle.  I have a lot of blue polish and nothing came even close to being remotely similar.

The formula was thick but yet slightly runny.  It self levels, so that was a plus. I used two coats with Seche Vite for the base and top coat. Dry time before the Seche Vite was fairly quick. This is a beautiful, calming blue that I never get tired of.  I love it on its own and as a base for stamping.  Of course the first mani had to be clouds.  I used a Konad plate for the clouds and a nail express plate for the flowers.  I'm trying to incorporate fimos in all my manicures.  It's my personal challenge to use all the designs that I have.  I also am going to try to use all the designs on every nail plate that I own.  I even want to somehow get through all my untried polishes too.  That is a mega challenge that might take me a year to do considering I only do my nails 2x/week. 


  1. Nice. Is that blue or more periwinkle?

    1. It's blue but leans slightly toward periwinkle. I'm totally in love with this color.
