Essie never fails to impress me with their annual Resort collections, and this year I have set my heart on First Timer, a bright turquoise tinted green cream. I would describe this polish as a perfect mix between Essie Turquoise & Caicos and a true bright green. There is definitely a turquoise tinge to this one and it isn't quite a true green. I love it!
natural light, 2 coats
The consistency of First Timer is a little thicker than other Essie polishes. I found one coat to be almost entirely opaque. This wore exceptionally well on me too, which I was happy about.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this shade, especially because I have a love/hate relationship with green nail polishes and rarely find ones I like. I tend to prefer greens with a minty, blue tint to them, or dark greens, and avoid bright, grassy greens.
The Essie Resort collection is available now at Ulta in stores and online!
