Essie Bikini So Teeny
I really couldn’t work out if this polish is blue or lilac. Most blogs describe it as blue, and it does look blue in the daylight. But in the evening and in low light, it looks more lilac.
Anyway, I’ve decided it’s probably blue. A cornflower blue with a very fine shimmer that is just about visible on the photo, but wasn’t visible on the nail at all.
A weird thing happened when I was finishing off this manicure. My top coat changed the colour of the polish. I top coated my right hand (no pictures) first with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri (the one in the red bottle) and it darkened the polish colour. I top coated one nail with Seche Vite and it didn’t seem to change the colour quite so much, so I used that on my left hand. But it did still change the colour, and any areas that had a thicker coat of top coat were darker still. I’ve never had this happen before; it was really strange.
