I have posted this polish before and was a little hesitant about featuring it again. I hate to post polishes more than once because there isn’t much I can say about a polish in two separate posts. Most of the time I talk about the formula and any issues I have with a polish the first time I feature it. But as a nail polish addict, I wear the polishes I buy more than once. So there is a slight dilemma that I think a lot of bloggers face. I have polishes that I love wearing but want to give you guys some variety.
A fellow nail blogger, Christina from Adventures in Polishland came up with an idea to feature her older polishes once a week. I might be stealing that idea but right now I have about 20 plus polishes that I still have to try out.
Essie “Navigate Her” was an “it” color for the spring. Pistachio greens were all the rage this last spring season and I went absolutely crazy trying to find this polish. I looked for it in so many different stores and finally picked it up after a few weeks of searching. I really need to start shopping online more rather than wasting gas money. The color itself is kind of interesting to me. I originally thought this polish would be brighter but its more on the muted side. It is a true pistachio color but almost leans to a neutral rather than a bright light green with a yellow tone. And the yellow tone to this polish makes it look really nice against my skin tone (or at least I think so).
The formula was awesome! It wasn’t too thick, wasn’t too thin and was completely opaque in 2 coats. The dry time was average. Another thing that I was impressed with is that I have yet to get any air bubbles in my manicures from this polish. There is something about Essie polishes where I get air bubbles in almost every single creme polish that I own. Formula gets an A+.
What do you guys think of this polish? Do you have it? Anyone else have problems with Essie polishes and getting air bubbles?
