Essie Borrowed & Blue Nail Polish: Review & Swatch

This particular shade of Essie nail polish came out probably 3 years ago, but it's still a classic, and easily found in the stores. Borrowed & Blue was part of one of the Wedding Collection that comes out yearly. The name perfectly fits the wedding theme, and the polish itself is a lovely light blue cream. This retails around $8 as most Essie polishes do.

As a cream polish goes, this is one of the better quality Essie pastel creams. Despite the almost white color of the light baby blue, it applies evenly and opaquely in two coats. It's actually even rather easy to apply. It's a must in any collection, and I like wearing baby blues in the summer (even though most will consider this as a spring shade). Lasting time was roughly 3-4 days (average lasting time on my nails).

Bottom Line: A solid baby blue pastel cream nail polish from Essie. If you don't own a shade like this, or even if you do, it's a nice one to add it to your collection.
