Happy Saturday! I met a new nail polish friend online and she happens to live in Minnesota. We started talking because she saw my Essie Sand Tropez post and now I talked her into starting a blog:) She had a great saying for the weather we are having in Minnesota..."Lovely Winter we're having this Spring" LOL, love it. I'm excited to see what she comes up with on her blog - I will share it as soon as she starts.
And on to the nail polish...this is Essie "Maximilian Strasse-Her" from the Spring 2013 Madison Ave-Hue Collection.
Essie describes Maximilian Strasse-Her as a cool grey green. I have been so drawn to green nail polish lately and I am so happy that I decided to pick this up.
I would also love to report that the formula on this one was as awesome as Avenue Maintain from this collection. I blogged about it here. Not sure if Essie has improved their formula or if it's a coincidence, but the last two I bought have been wonderfully opaque in two coats.
Here are some other greens I have for comparison. You know when you are in the store and you think of a polish in your stash that closely resembles the one you are thinking of purchasing? My first thought was OPI Thanks a Windmillion. As you can see here, the Essie is quite a bit lighter. And it makes Absolutely Shore look absolutely white. After swatching Ulta Army of 1, I was reminded that I need to wear that one again. I love Army of 1 and highly recommend it.
I hope you have a great weekend. My husband and I have tickets to the Minnesota Twins (baseball) game on Sunday. We are suppose to have another snow storm with up to 9 inches on Saturday night - into Sunday. The reason I mention this is because we have a new baseball stadium that doesn't have a roof....:(
