Essie - To Buy or Not To Buy

Hi everyone!!

This week's Twinsie Tuesday prompt is "inspired by a city."  Since I live in New York, I wanted to choose something that makes me think of New York.  This city is definitely known for its fashion, so as my base I used Essie To Buy or Not To Buy.  This is a constant dilemma for most New Yorkers.  There is always something nice to spend your money on.

Essie To Buy or Not to Buy has a pretty streaky formula. I had to use three coats to get decent coverage.  It's a shame too because it's really pretty.  I decided to stamp an image with fashion related words from the Pueen 50 plate over it.

Here's a look at To Buy or Not to Buy on its own.

To Buy or Not to Buy is a really pretty color, I just wish the formula was better and the shimmer showed up more.  What do you think of it?  Did you ever pick one up?

Don't forget to visit the other Twinsies to see their city inspired manicures!
