At the beginning of this year Essie announced they were adding 8 shades to their permanent lines; 5 from collections released in 2011 and 3 new colors. I wasn’t overly excited about the 5 polishes from previous collections they added. As much as I love Smokin’ Hot, Nina Ultra Pro Never Glum Plum is a cheaper, easily available dupe with a better formula and the rest I am rather neutral on (though Katie really loved Meet Me at Sunset). That being said, I was rather excited about the release of Go Overboard. As soon as I spotted the display I picked it up and I”m glad I did!
Essie describes Go Overboard as a “limitless sea blue.” Well, ok. I guess that works. I’d say something more along the lines of a teal blue creme but that doesn’t sound near as fancy! However it is described, Go Overboard is a GORGEOUS color. As if that wasn’t enough, the formula is also fantastic. It is opaque but not thick. I probably could have gotten away with 2 coats, but I did use 3.
This is not limited edition so don’t fret if you haven’t found the Go Overboard display in your area yet. It should be popping up very soon.
