I always feel kind of bad when I post a picture of a creme. They just don't inspire to me take as many pictures or to blah, blah, blah quite as much as I do with other finishes. It's not that I don't love cremes. I do! I really do! But with shimmers and glitters, different angles can show the polish differently. But a creme looks pretty much the same no matter what I do. Of course, I have no idea how many people actually read my drivel anyway, so maybe it doesn't matter! =)
Essie Shelter Island is really quite beautiful, a bright blue that is halfway between a creme and a jelly. It's got a lovely squishy finish that I'm quite fond of.
I have lots of light blue cremes in my collection, but I'm happy to say this one is unique. No dupes that I've found so far! I'll try to do a comparison picture with some of my other blues in a future post, I just didn't have time today. The formula on this one is good, though a little thin. I needed three coats for full opacity, and it's still got that jelly squishiness around the edges. Dry time was good, though, so I'm not complaining.
Hi to all the new folks! My little blog is really growing, and I love that you guys want to look at my pictures and (maybe) read my words! =D I'm working on a surprise for when I reach 100 followers, so be sure to stay tuned!
