Manicure Monday: First Timer

October 28, 2013

There's a first time for everything. Yep. And this weekend, it snowed for the first time in Edmonton this season, and you can bet everyone was moaning and groaning as they tweeted their complaints and posted pictures of the small amount of snow on the weekend. I have a serious love/hate relationship with winter. I love the cozy sweaters and sitting by the fireplace.. heck, I even love the snow. What I absolutely hate is the cold wind and frigid temperatures. Ugh. It'll soon be time to sit back and endure the 6 month winter.

Cold weather aside, I was going through my polish collection this weekend, and a bottle of polish caught my eye. I definitely missed swatching it in the early summer, as Essie's First Timer is from the 2013 Resort Collection. Oops. Anyway, I initially purchased this bottle online since it looked like another pretty mint polish to add to my growing collection. Unfortunately for me, this shade has more yellow in it, making it more of a green leaning mint. The formula is slightly thicker than what I'm used to, but the polish easily glides onto the nail and levels itself out wonderfully. Dry time is quick, and the polish dries glossy before adding a topcoat. With up to four days of wear chip free, I'm a happy camper, but still wish it looked more mint on my nails!
