Today I have for you another polish from a Summer collection that I really like: Essie's All Tied Up from their Bikini So Teeny collection. While all the other nail polishes in that collection are perfect shades for summer, All Tied Up stands out because it is not the typical bold color you would expect in such a collection.
All Tied Up is kind of a rosewood-mauve like color with copper shimmer. While the shimmer is barely visible indoors and in the shade, it is really sparkly in direct sunlight and sometimes I can see some reddish and green sparks as well. Formulation of this was a bit on the thicker side but not too bad. All Tied Up can be a one-coater if a thicker coat is applied. For this manicure I did two thin coats over Essie Nourish Me and finished it off with one coat of Good To Go. I really like the Essie topcoat because it makes the polish dry fast. However, I've experienced that my manicure does not wear as long as when I use other topcoats. So All Tied Up showed some tipwear after 24 hours of wear. Has anyone else experienced problems with Good To Go?
If you want to get All Tied Up, it is now available at DM drugstores in Germany for 7,95€ a bottle. In the US you can get Essie at ULTA, CVS, Rite Aid, Duane Reade and other drugstores. You can also order it online from Transdesign or Head2Toe Beauty.
Do you like All Tied Up or do you prefer the usual bright colors for summer?
Thanks for reading, have a great Sunday!
