Essie: Turquoise & Caicos

This was another color that my forum friends picked out for me to try. This got two votes (out of four at the time) so I figured I'd wear it sooner rather than later. Turquoise & Caicos is a nice color for Spring or Summer and a pretty alternative for the popular coral shades for this season. I didn't like this color when I first put it on last night but I am a much bigger fan of it today in the sunlight.

This is 3 coats of T&C over Nailtiques formula 2, I tried to use non Seche topcoat and just could not wait for it to dry! I ended up putting Seche QD over the initial coat of Rimmel 60 seconds that was still tacky after half an hour. T&C is a pretty creme turquoise that might lean a little to the green side but does look pretty close to the stone Turquoise.


  1. Ooh, I really like that color a lot. It's very... "you." Also it makes me think of the beach

  2. That's funny because I sort of hate this color lol. I got a bunch of compliments but it's just not my cup of tea.
