Head Over Heels for Turquoise & Caicos+ Review on Brucci Base Coat

picture taken from Essie Website

I am a hardcore turquoise lover, so when I saw that my mom got me the mini pack of the Essie Resort Collection that had Turquoise and Caicos I was beyond happy. When I put it on the nail I was pleased but not thrilled to be honest with you, I loved that it was a jelly and applied quite nicely I just didn't like how the color wasn't like it was in the bottle. *UPDATE* In the picture shown, I have two coats over cream white base coat + seche vite top coat. It occurred to my mother that she had bought a white/cream base coat from Sally's the other day and that might bring out the color. This is the perfect turquoise for me, so much so I even went out and bought the bigger bottle I am just head over heels for this fantastic color, I suggest that if you haven't gotten it yet you run, not walk and get this immediately.

the bottle looks like this except the liquid is a cream color ^

I LOVE that base coat now, well I love it because it helps bring out colors but let me be honest with you, it's really not that great for every day, it's pretty streaky and with a few coats of a jelly there tend to be bald spots so it has many downsides.. but if you are patient this is great to bring out colors...unless of course you just prefer painting your traditional base coat then a white coat.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and posts, if any requests please comment and subscribe/follow! <3
