This is a beautiful, vivid turquoise creme polish. It dries to a bright and shiny finish. It's a tropical, summery blue, and bright without being obnoxious. The formula is not the easiest to work with, though. It's thin, as Essie polish often is, and goes on quite streaky. It takes 2-3 coats to make it opaque. I did two, thought it looked opaque, but when I got it outside in sunlight I could see some patches and streaks. So, beautiful color, and it's worth taking the time to work with it, I just wish it laid down on the nail a bit better. I love this color so I'd definitely repurchase.
