Good color, but not a one coater

When I was looking for new nail polish to buy last month, this color immediately jumped out to me. It’s a very clean, mint blue-green that’s very on-trend for the Spring, and has an above average drying time (this is usually the case for Essie). This nail color works best with all skin tones, but will really pop on tanned or dark skin tones. The nail polish brush is quite small, so it’s good to work with if you have small fingernails. On the downside, this nail color takes some time to become opaque–for me, I had to paint on three semi-thick coats. That’s pretty high for a nail polish that’s advertised as a high-end brand. Otherwise, this nail polish is quite nice and pretty to wear, and I get many compliments. May chip quickly if you don’t use a top coat.

Essie Turq & Caicos

Very lite sheer green pistachio color. Took four coats to get the true bottle color. Nice spring and summer color.

Very pretty and FAST

The color is gorgeous! I’ve been looking for this color in store but could never find it; the stores will sell out. I bought it and the shipping was so quick that it shocked me yet excited me. Once I got it I used it and this polish dries within 5 minutes. Try this polish with your favorite gold polish.

Won’t find a better summer color!!!!!

Honestly everybody needs to wear this color at least a few times a summer! It’s gorgeous, looks just like the picture, paints on evenly and does not chip for like a week! Which is typical for essie – essie has the best formula ever!My favorite color, I highlyyyy suggest it to everyone !! You will not be disappointed and you’ll get a thousand compliments

Not What I Was Expecting

I just received this today and tried it. I really like the application (hence 2 stars) – a quick 2 coats gave me maximum opacity. The color? I was hoping for a bright turquoise based on reviews, but this color is an extremely dull turquoise in my opinion and is definitely not great. It’s darker than the picture and is much more of a medium-green in person than what the picture presents (light blue-green). I love the application, but I do not like this color. I doubt I will ever use it. I’ve already taken it off and have already purchased Essie’s Mint Candy Apple to replace this.

Beautiful turquoise color from essie

Pretty much your standard awesome essie quality. I would say the color was very true to the picture – a take on TIffany blue, very fashionable turquoise

Beautiful Nail Polish colors!

I love the colors that Essie makes and I had to make this one a part of my collection! It is beautiful by itself or if you have it as a base for a glitter polish!
