Today I have a polish from the summer 2010 Essie collection to show you: Pretty Edgy. I was really excited for this color since I'm a sucker for greens and since its not a typical shade to expect from Essie!
I had a hard time capturing the green color on camera, it isn't this dark in irl. (my current camera really sucks, but I'm getting a new one for my birtday in July! Yay!) It's hard to describe what kind of green it is. It absolutly isn't a dupe for Jade is The New Black, which is more blue-based & darker, this one is more yellow-based & brighter.
As much as I like the color, I didn't really like the formula of this one. It was streaky and needed 3 coats. This came as a suprise to me since I've read from other bloggers that they really like the formula (in contrary to the Resort Collection from Essie). Maybe I got a bad one or maybe I wasn't carefully enough, I don't know. But in the end it doesn't matter cause it's so gorgeous! I REALLY recommend this color to everyone who's into green polish.
After a few days I wanted do to something with my nails, but I didn't want to take of Pretty edgy, so I added some konad roses! I used plate m65 and stamped with Wet n Wild - Black creme. I'm still working on my konad-skills so sorry that it doesn't look that great. :D
Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!
