Lately I’ve been on a bit of a green nail polish kick. I blame PISTOL polish Dean’s List. So when I was looking for a polish to wear the other day I remembered I had this one from Essie’s Summer 2013 resort collection. I got First Timer awhile ago, along with In the Cab-ana from the same collection, but threw First Timer in what I call my Essie vase and sort of forgot about it.
First timer is a bright light green that falls slightly short of the pastel category. It’s significantly whiter than Mojito Madness, last year’s popular green polish from Essie, but still perfect for the spring and summer.
The formula was good. I used three coats in my swatches. It is worth noting the color changes a bit as it dries and ends up a shade or two darker than the polish looks in the bottle.
Generally I love Essie’s resort collections and this year is no exception!
