Good morning and happy Saturday. A few days ago in the mail I received a promo item for an Essie and Toms shoes collaboration. The idea of the promo is to help promote not wearing shoes for one day to help those in need. I think the concept is really cool, I can’t swallow the idea of spending full price on a pair of Toms although I really love their mission. When you buy a pair of shoes, a child in need gets a pair as well. So on a side note, Airwalk sold at Payless was doing an identical thing a few months back so I had bought a pair of those shoes for $20. However I support Toms as well because of what they do, it is an amazing thing. Ok, so I was signed up for their informational list and I was sent the opportunity on their Facebook to receive this polish. And it has arrived. I’m sure this is a pretty limited run, and it’s unclear if it will be mass-produced for retail sales. My husband thinks I should put it on eBay. lol
If I were to pull out a box of Crayola crayons this is kind of mix between Cornflower Blue and Periwinkle. There is a subtle pearlized finish on the polish that gives a hint of shimmer on the nails. This was an unexpected yet pleasant surprise. The formula was fantastic, it covered my nails in two coats but I did three to see how it would layer. I used a coat of Seche Vite on top. Day three right now with only one small chip. Impressive.
Good luck to those of you who missed the promo that lasted about 5 seconds.
If anyone is incredibly interested in this polish I may consider a swap of some kind? SOLD! Just contact me through the comments or my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
