Today I have a review on what I think seems to be one of Essie’s most popular shades, Bikini So Teeny. I have seen this in dozens of blog posts over the past few months and although I thought it looked very pretty it isn’t really a shade I usually go for.. it isn’t pink. However, I decided to give in to the hype and give it a go.
Bikini So Teeny is a gorgeous lilac, blue toned nail polish which is the perfect shade for both Spring and Summer. It reminds me of blue bells and as soon as I applied it I loved it. It is so pretty and it is the perfect tone as it isn’t too pale or too dark. On the first day I wore this polish my nails attracted a lot of attention and I was surprised about the number of people who commented on how nice it is.
The formulation of Essie polishes seem to differ slightly depending on the shade and this one seems particularly thin. If you are in a rush you can get away with two coats but it can look a little sparse and patchy in places so three coats is ideal. The polish dries very quickly and is long lasting, I’ve been wearing mine for 7 days so far and am completely chip free (I used top coat but no base because I was lazy) which is very impressive. I love it when you can paint your nails and trust that it will stay in place for a reasonable amount of time. Despite not using a base this time round this isn’t something I will be doing again as this polish does stain your nails a little!
You can buy Bikini So Teeny by Essie from Superdrug for £7.99.
