Nail of the Day: Essie Dive Bar

Today's NOTD is Essie Dive Bar, a dark navy/purple/green color that is quickly becoming one of my favorite polishes. I especially love this shade because it is so un-Essie like. Essie is almost always light, creamy pastels, so something like this is really exciting. I love this for the same reason I love my Chanel Black Pearl: it gives my nails that edgy, chic dark look without being black. (Note: Chanel Black Pearl is much more grey/green than this polish) The consistence was nice on this as well.

natural light, 2 coats

If you like this shade, check out the rest of the Essie Dive Bar collection! It features 6 polishes that are much more "fun" than usual Essie shades.

Would you wear it?

  22. Reminds me of a darker version of Butter London Big Smoke... I could be wrong!! It's beautiful and I want it... But I'm at a point in my collection where I'm sure I don't need it... Sadly /:
