Quick Swatch: Essie Absolutely Shore

Hello there! Today I have for you a very quick swatch post. Literally. It's just on my pinky finger! I was in TJ Maxx earlier, and I saw several nail polishes on clearance. There were a bunch of Nicole By OPI polishes, and a few Essie polishes. Absolutely Shore was the only one that I really wanted to have.

I picked up Absolutely Shore for only $3.99 (regular retail price around $7 or $8). This is my first Essie polish, so I wasn't sure what to expect with the formula. This was terribly streaky the first two coats, but the third coat really evened everything out. This is a really pretty, muted sea foam green. I believe this came out for their Resort Collection in 2011, but I could be wrong.

Hope you enjoyed this super short post! Wanted to get this up before I got busy with the new semester! :)


  1. looks like a very pretty nude...I got an Essie nail polish recently for $3.99 at TJMaxx and it is Angora Cardi, I think it was from the 2009 fall collection, its my first one too. Essie nail polishes are not really worth the 7-8 dollar price tag, in my opinion but I've not used a lot of them so I cannot say for sure either.
