Nails: Essie Bikini So Teeny.

Ever since I discovered the Essie diffusion line which has recently gone in to Boots and Superdrug, I haven’t even looked at another brand. The colour range is everything you will ever need, and the brush makes even the most sloppy of people look like they’ve spent hours painting their nails. 
I recently picked up ‘Bikini So Teeny’ from the newly released Summer ’12 shades, it’s a lovely soft, shimmery cornflower blue with the lightest touch of lilac that is nothing like any of the other shades I own. It really is such a gorgeous summery colour and I have loved having it on my nails. 
I find the diffusion line shades to be a dream to apply, the brush is incredible and each layer dries so quickly. I like to change my nail shades a lot and the Essie polishes have made this so easy. 
At just £7.99 a bottle, I think they’re absolutely worth the money and I am building up quite the collection now. 
What do you think of Bikini So Teeny? I keep giggling at the name because it’s so cute!

  • So excited that this shade is included in the diffusion line – I’ve been wondering whether it would be! Definitely going to run out and grab it now!


  • I’ve been craving this shade since it’s release, partly because of the gorgeous colour and partly because the name slips so easily off the tounge.
    I have major love for essie polishes as well, such a great brush on them & they’re never too thick- my pet hate!
