Essie First Timer

Hi you guys! Hope your Monday is off to a good start. :-)

I've got another fun color from the Essie Resort 2013 Collection to share with you today. First Timer is a cool-toned medium minty green with a creme finish.






This is a really pretty and unique green. :-) Depending on the lighting, it can look more aqua or more green. It seems relatively light in the bottle, but once on the nails, it appears darker and more of a medium green... not sure why that is lol. The formula is good, coming out in thin and even coats that are nicely pigmented and that dry to a glossy shine. The first coat is a little streaky, but the second coat smooths everything out and reaches opaque coverage.

You can find First Timer on Essie.com, at your local nail salons and drug stores, and at big name retailers like Target and Macy's for $8 for 0.46 fl oz.

    1. Hehe I know what you mean about lobster hands... they happen often with greens and blues for me. This one wasn't too bad on me though, so it may look all right on you too. :-)

  12. It's been a decent Monday so far :) I've worked out two days in a row, work's busy but not overwhelming, and I've had a RAOK bestowed upon me, which means I get to consciously make a decision to pay it forward. The goal is to be in that kind of a mindset before something cool happens to me, lol, but it sure lifts the spirits when it does :) :) Anyhoo, this is a stunner and I'm sure it'll eventually make its way into my stash. I'll keep trying to make these gorgeous mint shades work on me ;)

    1. Working out - you go, girl! And yay for RAOK! That's a really sweet idea. :-) I'm glad you're liking this color. Haha most mint greens don't really work with me, but I wear them anyways. ;)
