Essie – Bikini with a martini

Bikini with a Martini is one of the youngest shades of this collection with the release year of 2006. It’s also one of those shades that make me think of the old days when polishes kind of looked like this! Can you believe the iridescent shimmer this polish has?

It’s also very sheer, but buildable. After the first coat you’ll have a beautiful shine on your nails. The second coat builds it up better, still leaving a VNL. Even the third coat leaves some VNL but you can definitely see how the shade has built up to a (more) solid color.

I absolutely love this shade! I might even get a full-size bottle!

    Gorg – these kind of shades remind me of an updated version of what I used to do my nails in during the 60s when it was all about frosted white or pink polish

    Nja, det här var inte min kopp te alls. Känns väldigt omodernt.
