Twinkle Bell had worn out her welcome, so I stopped in Walgreens on my way to the conference center. The Essie summer collection was front and center, and Bikini So Teeny is really the only polish from this set that has caught my eye. I hadn't brought remover, Seche Vite, nada, so I bought Essie Good to Go and cheap remover as well.

This polish is a periwinkle blue that has a beautiful silver shimmer. Sadly, this shimmer is only visible in the bottle and in very bright light. This photo is a tad bit bluer than the polish really is, but it was really tricky to photograph. Formula wise, this one was thin and required three coats, but I think wear is much better with 3 thin coats than 1-2 thick ones.
Good to Go worked pretty well too. I think it dried almost as fast as my beloved Seche Vite. It also had a very hard finish, but I love that thick glassiness I get with SV. It'll be handy to keep around as a back up.
