Essie First Timer


First Timer by Essie ~ Resort Collection 2013

I really had no desire to pick up any of these polishes from the Resort Collection. I must have had a weak moment or they looked better in person because I bought two from Walgreens on a recent visit. First Timer is the one I wanted to try first. I don't own many green polishes. I liked this one because it looked like mint green but a little deeper. In the bottle it looks just like that - a deeper mint green cream. However, on the nails with two coats, I find it to be darker. More like a grass green almost. The above picture looks like the true color on the nails with two coats.

While it's pretty, it's not what I was hoping for. The first coat applied a little streaky but the second coat looked good. It wore pretty well for about 4 days.

  4. I love minty green polish in the bottle but think it looks terrible on me. I think it looks pretty in your pictures! I bought a few of the CG polishes based on all of your reviews and I'm really liking them! Stacie xo

  5. I love the color variety that Essie has but they are so hit or miss for me. That is a pretty green color! Not all their colors look great on me though (in my opinion). Your nails always look great Crystal! ~ obxNicole
