Newer Essies I Had Passed On

Last time I showed you two Essie polishes from some way older collections and today I have two from more recent collections. I don’t know about you, but the more polish I acquire, the more discriminating I become. I used to just run out and buy whole collections without really thinking about the colors–I just wanted every single polish because I felt incomplete not getting a complete collection. Now I tend to pass on colors more often. Case in point: I only bought ONE of the OPI Germany polishes because all the others were a snoozefest for me.

Today I have two previously shunned Essies to show you:

 

   

First one up is Tour De Finance:

    

This was the only color from the Navigate Her Collection that I didn’t purchase. Why? I have no idea. Maybe I was hating on pink that day. Who knows?! It’s a very shimmery hot pink with an awesome formula. You can get away with one thick coat but I applied 2 thin coats here.

Next up is Dive Bar:

    

Oh, Dive Bar! Why are you so deceptive? When I saw that purple shimmer flash in the bottle, I was drooling. But where did it go once I put it on my nails? Sadness! I’m not saying it isn’t an awesome nail polish, I was just a little disappointed that the purple was MIA.  The formula on this seemed a little watery but  it went on easily and 2 coats were enough for full opacity.  Do I like this? Hell yeah!

Don’t forget to check out Beauty Stop Online if you’re looking for some of these Essie colors (and many other polish brands as well!).  You can click here and browse through their selection.

Are there any polishes that you previously passed on and recently picked up?

  1. I still definitely feel the pull of, "Oooh, a new collection, gimme gimme gimme," but I think I am becoming *somewhat* more selective. I did buy the whole ChG Safari collection, but I am 100% fine with that. I didn't buy any of the ChG New Bohemians and I only bought one OPI Germany polish, as well, and that's only because it was a surprise neutral hit with me!
    I like Tour de Finance (although I hate the name…finance?…that's boring, haha) on you becase I feel like you don't wear those types of pinks all that often. I like Dive Bar (now I like that name…that's fun!, haha), but it's a shame about the lost duo and it reminds me of Deborah Lippmann Don't Tell Mama.
    I have been avoiding clicking on that link…must…resist…the link!!!

    1. I do like it a lot but I still can’t stop myself from being disappointed about how the purple disappears once on the nail. 🙁
