Hello Everyone! I'm back with a new Essie. This is "Avenue Maintain" from the Spring 2013 Madison Ave-Hue Collection
I had no idea what the name meant. "Avenue Maintain" ??? huh? So I looked it up on the Essie site and here is what they have under the name "fashionably adroit, lovely parisian blue channels the je ne sais quoi allure of the capital of chic." Ohhh, okay....NOW I get it... :-\
Despite the strange name, the color is beautiful. And guess what!? It's very opaque, like opaque in one coat. That is not typical with Essie polishes, so I was so impressed.
I hesitated when grabbing this one because I was convinced that I had a dupe at home. And I don't! Orly Blue Collar is probably the closest and that is a little more teal than Avenue Maintain. Avenue Maintain is not even close to Essie Butler Please or Nails Inc Baker Street. And it's way more blue than Where's My Chauffeur and colors like that. It really is unique to my collection, and that makes me happy:)
Have you grabbed any new Essie's lately?
