Summer Shades, Week 4: Cool Aquas | Essie Blossom Dandy

Week 4 of my Summer Shades installment series.  Jeez, I kept to a month of something --  I'm impressed with myself!  This week is all about the Cool Aquas.

First up is Essie Blossom Dandy, a blue-toned mint pastel creme from the Essie Spring Collection inspired by one of my favorite designers, Rebecca Minkoff.  The formula was pretty good considering it's a white-based pastel and lends itself to a chalkiness.  I recommend three super thin coats to avoid cuticle pooling and uneveness; this will level itself out on the third coat but just layer thinly.

While I don't have Mint Candy Apple to compare, what I like about Blossom Dandy is the freshness the blue tone gives to this otherwise mint creme.  Just amps up an otherwise standard pastel.  Also, this baby lasts.  I wore this for like a week without a chip.  Pretty impressive.  Stay tuned for more Cool Aquas coming your way!
