Essie Greenport

This is Essie Greenport from the North Fork collection of 2009. It sold out pretty quickly, faster than the other two shades from that collection Sag Harbor and Shelter Island. Some dupes have come on the scene since then, most notably the L'oreal collection that basically copied the collection exactly...not too surprising since they acquired Essie in 2010 but the formula on those wasn't quite what I have come to know and love from ol' Ms. Weingarten. My point is that I've always wanted the original and I recently got it in a swap, needless to say, I am very happy about this :)
It is everything I dreamed it would be. Lovely turquoise tinted green crème with that slightly squishy feeling, bright but not too bright. Très lovely, no?

This is some nail art I am daring show you, which I rarely do, as I'm ridiculously un-talented at it. I found this chicky on YouTube that makes super easy tutorials so I thought I'd give one a go. This was a perfect background color for this vintagey wallpaper-esque design I thought. You like?
Please ignore the dent/divot in my pointer finger. Of COURSE I do some nail art I actually like and I screw it up. Typical ;)
