Essie Bikini So Teeny is a bright, yet pastel blue with the most subtle silver shimmer. The shimmer itself does not translate onto the nail, just like most Essie polishes.
I love shades like this! And Essie does them so well. Light enough that they are flattering, yet bright enough to make a slight statement. This blue is just perfect.
Two coats, with very easy application:
As you can see, the color varies SLIGHTLY in the bottom two pics. I have been messing with camera setting trying to get the most color accurate photos. The main place you can tell the difference is in my skin tone. Yikes! lol.
