When I was compiling my list of Essie polishes and ticking off which I’d already swatched I was pretty surprised that I’d missed this one. It’s got to be one of my top 10 favourites and one of the few I’ve reached for more than once so it’s almost shocking that I haven’t already done a NOTD post with this.. in fact I’m almost certain that I have I just can’t seem to find it anywhere. Curious! Absolutely Shore is an off white green, I’m not usually a green fan but this makes white more wearable. Unlike Fiji (a pale pink) which I think makes my hands look a little blue this is cooler yet more flattering. I generally apply 3 coats of any polish to ensure I have a totally opaque, bottle finish but you could get away with just 2 if you were in a rush with this formula which is impressive, the paler shades are usually streaky/sheer. Overall love this and the new Xtra’s iridescent sparkle I just bought gives what I consider to be a spring shade a bit of a Wintry edge, don’t you think?
