Essie Absolutely Shore

Absolutely Shore is from Essie's summer 2011 collection, Braziliant. I've only picked up two of these, the other one I nabbed is Smooth Sailing. Although I haven't gotten pictures of it, I'm sure most of you have seen that already - it IS indeed awesome. I'm a bit behind on my swatching because A. There hasn't been much sunlight here! and B. I'm overwhelmed with the recent collections that have emerged, drugstores included. I'm picking up bits and pieces at a time as I decide what I need. Drugstores and Sally Beauty Supply here tend to get things a bit later, usually!
Anyway - Absolutely Shore is a murky, dusty pastel green. I utterly adore this! Gah. Seriously, it's another addition to my mint collection, but I don't have a dupe - grunge mint creme, here. Two coats, this applied like a dream. I'm very glad, because my experience with Essie pastels has been sub-par - they're usually chalky, thick and hard to work with. Absolutely Shore was the total opposite.


Obviously, today's Wednesday. I'm skipping Pink Wednesday this week because I didn't get a pink swatch in! I've been considering if I need any more of the Braziliant polishes.

  6. It looks really pretty! I think Essie really have made some awsome polishes the last two-three years and I think this collex will have one or two I need to pick up for myself. I ordered Essie Da Bush a couple of days ago and some other spring colors. I'm way behind too, both swatching and buying. But it is a great time to love polish. There are just so many pretties!
