Essie Find Me An Oasis

Essie is just not a brand I gravitate to… but sometimes they make a polish that just pulls me in completely.  I stalked blogger swatches and anxiously awaited a CVS coupon, cause you know they always show up right after you've splurged.. As soon as I could Find Me An Oasis was mine!

This is 3 thin coats topped with Seche Vite, as I actually wore this instead of just swatching it. Far too pretty to just remove.

Find Me An Oasis is a stunning pale icey blue crelly polish that covered easily in 3 coats.  Usually with polishes this pale and white based formula is really difficult, but this formula is amazing and the color pay out is even better.  

Yes I get a slight case of lobster hands with this color but I love it so much I just don't care.  Do you have any polishes like that? Absolutely love the color but it doesn't play super nicely with your skin tone… do you keep wearing it out of love or find something that goes a little better with your coloring? 

Just for fun/practice I decided to do a glitter placement accent using a bunch of silver, holo and white glitters. Great in theory, just not so much for this manicure.  Enjoy this mani fail :)

Stay Sparkly,
