Essie Turquoise & Caicos

Essie Nail Polish
Essie Turquoise & Caicos is a "must have" in the turquoise/mint/greenish color family.  I actually prefer this over Mint Candy Apple (shown below).  Although this is very sheer (this is like 4 of 5 coats...I lost count) it applies easier than Mint Candy Apple.  The layers go on more evenly...you just need more of them.  This is also a bit more green than lots of the other turquoise/mint colors like For Audrey and Mint Candy Apple.  I like how it isn't such an "in your face" turquoise, it's more subtle.  It actually has more of a jelly finish since it's so sheer.  After wearing it all day, I remember why I liked it so much in the past.  I had my doubts as I was applying coat after coat last night!

    2. Wet and Wild MegaLast has a color called "I need a refreshment" in their new line and it is very close (well, it's actually, exactly the same as CG For Audrey.
      It's a very good dupe great formula and cover in 2 coats.

  3. I LOVE Mint Candy Apple. I'm going to have to have to pick up Turks and Caicos and try them out side by side. It is a really pretty color though :)
