I'm in love.
I first spotted you a couple of weeks ago. I gazed at you from afar but you drew me in. You were so blue and dreamy, like the sky. I had to move closer, just to get a better look. That's when I found out your name. I thought it was strange but then I found out it was French. Oooh la la. I was intrigued then. I love everything French- French bread, French kissing, croissants, Coco Chanel, Givenchy... I had to have you but I couldn't. Not then- the timing wasn't right. But I went back for you today. When I got home, I couldn't wait. With one stroke of the brush, I was head over heels. Now you are all over my fingers and I am in love. I'm in love with Essie in Coat Azure.
Ok, perlas, seriously, enough of my drama, but for real I never tried Essie before. You've probably seen their ads in Allure and Glamour magazines. I spotted Essie polish in CVS a couple of weeks ago but kept talking myself out of buying a bottle. I kept saying that I would come back and get it because I have spent more than enough money on polish lately. But I just couldn't hold off anymore- the blue was calling me. So I bought it.
Essie in Coat Azure is the perfect blue- warm and inviting... yet fierce. It has quiet strength, like pearls...The application was smooth and easy. I applied two coats. The polish looks rich and full. Check out my pics:
Coat Azure is part of Essie's French Affair Collection which is inspired by classic French style. This collection is a throwback to classic 1960's glamour. There are five other fabulous shades in this collection:
- French Affair- tres innocent pink
- Sand Tropez- sun-kissed tan de soleil
- Topless and Barefood- coquettish peach at the beach
- Kisses and bises- swoon worthy iridescent
- Nice is nice- supremely happy Spring wisteria
