Essie: Turquoise & Caicos Swatches & Review

Today’s post is on one of my all-time favourite polishes from Essie: Turquoise & Caicos. This is the polish that made me venture from the world of pinks and reds into a world of blues and greens. It is a dusty turquoise crème that screams beaches and clear waters. The formula is quite tricky and I experienced a lot of streaking and dragging. To fix that, I used 2 coats of Turquoise & Caicos, 1 coat of Seche Vite top coat, then another coat of Turquoise & Caicos. I didn’t finish with a top coat because this polish dries extremely glossy. The end result is worth the troublesome formula. Here are the swatches:

I jazzed it up with Orly Prisma Gloss Silver top coat and I love love love the sparkles!
