today we have Essie Mesmerize, a dusty blue cream. i was a little shocked by the formula, Essie is usually so consistent! this one took three coats because at the second there was still patchiness. boo! it is a lovely blue, but it's a little darker and a little less royal blue than this swatchie appears.
one coat Seche Base, three coats Mesmerize, one coat Seche Vite.
as a an avid blue collector, this one is not one of my favorites. it's pretty, but not spectacular. i would probably still re-buy this polish, though... what can i say, blue polish is my crack! starting tomorrow i will give my first impressions of the Julep Maven program and then have a series of Julep polish reviews! i LOVE getting packages in the mail, so right there it makes it more fun, Ria :)
