Essie Borrowed & Blue under Essie Barbados Blue

i'm really frustrated, apparently the storage unit i want for my polish is on strike... i've been to multiple stores and none of them have the three drawer cube! seems like the second you start looking for something, it is nowhere to be found... and once you finally aquire it... you see it everywhere!

today we're looking at some gorgeous winter blues, Essie Borrowed & Blue and Essie Barbados Blue. two different finishes filled with icy goodness! Borrowed & Blue is a light, cool blue cream which skews slightly towards robin's egg blue, but is not nearly as saturated. two coats, perfect with no streakiness!  in some lighting, it is an even a lighter, brighter shade of blue! Barbados Blue is Borrowed & Blue's frosty little sister! it is a true frost, complete with brushstrokeyness. if you hate that look, definitely skip this one! i used only one coat over Borrowed & Blue, that's all i needed to give the manicure a whole new look.

one coat Seche Base, two coats Borrowed & Blue, one coat Seche Vite.

one coat Barbados Blue finished off with one coat SV.

i think this is the most perfect manicure for winter... it just screams icy and cold! hope you enjoyed this one, let me know if you all like the seasonal and holiday manicures. Ria :)
