This is a first for me, as in my first Essie nail polish. I am pleased to report that I could not be happier with it! I bought GI from a giant blog sale recently and could not wait to try it, even though I was sad to see Sea Spray go. I wavered back and forth about purchasing GI for months because I try to limit myself to polishes that are completely unique to my collection and I was so sure that this one would be very very similar to OPI Jade Is the New Black. When I saw GI on this blog sale for the price of merely $4 I took that as a sign and put that lemming to rest.
Going Incognito is a deep green creme that leans just a touch blue, enough to make the color extremely rich without pulling it teal at all. It is a true forest green. The application was just a touch streaky on the first coat and the polish seemed a little runny at first but it smooths out completely by the second coat for a flawless finish in two coats. The polish dried a bit darker on my nails then in appears in the bottle color but that is fine by me because this color is green perfection! (And I'm a true green lover- it's second only to medium purple cremes in my heart!) I'm playing with picture sizes, how does Essie look extra-large?
Essie has one extremely satisfied customer with this polish. Now it's probably time to go and grab that bottle of Mesmerized that I have had my eye on!
Incognito huh? I would go just about anywhere for this polish! ;-)
