Essie Summer 2012: Bikini So Teeny

So I wanted to show you all some more A-England holo swatches today but since it is way too cloudy, I'm leaving it for when there is plenty of sunlight. Instead, I have a polish I talked about swatching a while back: Bikini So Teeny from Essie's Summer 2012 collection. In case you missed the review of its equally famous counterpart, Mojito Madness, you can find it here.


Bikini So Teeny is a light dusty blue with strong tones of periwinkle. In the bottle, there is vivid shimmer but none of it is visible on the nail. The formula is on the thicker side but easier to work with that a lot of cremes by Essie. There is some streakiness in the application but I found that the third coat does the trick of leveling everything. One of the reasons this colour is so popular is because it flatters all skin tones. I used 3 coats of Bikini So Teeny topped with 1 coat of Seche Vite:

I decided that this is the perfect base for a gold glitter gradient!! I used OPI Spark De Triomphe to do a reverse glitter gradient:

What do you think of the glitter? As always, thanks for stopping by!
