Essie Armed & Ready NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 2 - 2012

Essie Armed & Ready is from the Spring Go Overboard collection and one that I picked up owing to it’s beautiful golden shimmer as perfectly demonstrated by The PolishAholic in her great swatches.  Can I get the golden shimmer to show up?  Can I bollocks.  I’m putting it down to the fact that she lives in Orange County, CA and I’m currently staying in Shitsville, NBA (Newcastle Brown Ale).

Despite the lack of golden glitz, Essie’s Armed & Ready is still a very nice army green, a dirgy khaki if you will.  It also applies in a single coat if you get the brush fill right, you definitely don’t need more than two coats before whacking on your quick-dry topper.

I wish I could give you some beautiful shimmer shots, but in lieu of those…. have a look at just what I have to put up with while I’m trying to blog – it’s a wonder I actually get any bloody posts written…

I’m heading home today (after my fortnight at the in-laws), have had a lovely time but it’ll be nice to get back into my normal routine!  Hope all my lovely UK/Commonwealth peeps enjoy the Jubilee Weekend! x

    I love this colour. I don't have it yet but hoping to get my greedy hands on it by fall.

  4. Aww ^.^ Lela is the cutest, Charlotte! :) I always just want to reach into the frame and pinch her cheeks.

    (But not very hard. People always used to pinch my cheeks when I was little, and dammit, it really hurt! Just, y’know, with mild cheek-pinching strength. Child-sized pinches for child-sized faces.)

    Armed and Ready is the most disappointing nail polish purchase I’ve ever made. The girls who captured those amazing pictures sure mislead us poor slobs. :)
