Essie: Beach Bum Blu


I was at my local Boots back home, which, let's just say is rather modest in size, and I was amazed to find an Essie stand there. Without even hesitating I glanced around and looked for a colour to take home with me. And this one hit me hard. 

The name is Beach Bum Blu, but for some reason it reminds me of mermaids, can't you just see them swimming around with this little beauty on their nails? Just me? I would call it (and in my head do,) A Mermaids Tale.


It is a gorgeous bright almost aqua blue colour with a hint of duo chrome silver in it. This makes it a different colour in different lights, which makes it even more fun. It is a bit 'in your face' on finger nails, but I reckon it will be perfect on toe nails for summer. (Note: I have now tried it on my toes, a-mazing.)


So what do you think? Too out there, or super cool?
