All I need is a new nail polish.

Essie bikini so teeny swatchesFew weeks a go when I wasn’t feeling too well, hubs came home with the cutest “Get Well” card, a bouquet of flowers and a bottle of nail polish. That man really knows how to put a smile on my face. Even when I’m feeling like crap. Being that I’m a nail polish hoarder I half expected to already own this color, and as soon as I saw it I went “aww that’s nice babe, but I think I already…. nope never mind, don’t have this one yet.” He did good. :)

 Essie Bikini so Teeny is a divine, sparkling, cornflower blue. A shade that’s perfect for Spring/Summer. This creamy blue with a subtle hint of shimmer reminds me of a beautiful, clear sky on a sunny summer day-very pretty and unique color. It seems to me like this is a great shade to transition into new, warmer season.

The formula, unfortunately is a bit thin, but not streaky- I’ll take thin over thin and streaky any day. I had to apply three coats to get a nice coverage, but fortunately, it dried quickly. The shimmer is definitely more visible in the bottle than it is once applied, but I still think that it’s beautiful.

I usually wouldn’t reach for a shade like this one, I always went for paler blues like “Find me an oasis” but right now, I can’t get enough of Bikini so Teeny.

  • This shade is gorgeous! I have one similar to this by Models Own x

  • Your man has great taste! If my mister came home with a nail polish for me, I’d be over the moon – definitely a way to a nail polish addict’s heart! this looks like a really gorgeous shade, even if it is a tad thin xx

    • Awwwe thanks Ioanna! :)

  • This is such a spring shade, we love it! At the moment we have fallen in love with New Looks new make up range and their nail polish colours are to die for! :)

    • Thanks so much girls!

  • Bikini so Teeny is one of my favourite Essie shades! And I find it so cute that your husband brings you Nail Polish as a “get better” present, I’ve received a LUSH goodie a couple of months ago in the same matter… I guess Beauty Addicts are easy to please, right ;-)

    • Aww that’s so nice! It’s definitely not very difficult, that’s true ;) All he has to do is take a look at my enormous wish list haha :D :D

  • I loe that cornflower sky blue color, so gorgeous! How sweet of him to surprise you :) Great post!

    Showers are my feel good activity. I love taking a long hot shower when I’m not feeling well or feeling stressed.
