Resort Nails: Blue & Turquoise

Today's nails are a throwback to Essie's awesome Resort Collection from 2010... the stars of which were these two polishes, #IFYEWASKME.

Turquoise & Caicos, Lapiz of Luxury, Polka dot accent nail

Turquoise & Caicos is a pastel turquoise and Lapiz of Luxury is a periwinkle blue. Both are them are perfectly beachy, aquatic and delightful.

These polishes are both on the sheer-ish side, with Lapiz of Luxury needing 3 coats before becoming opaque. I only did 2 coats of Turquoise & Caicos, but that probably could have used 3 coats as well.

It's been a little while since the last time I did polka dots, so there was definitely a practice round on a piece of scrap paper before the dots went onto my nails.

On my left hand, I used Turquoise as the accent nail, but it's switched up on the right hand - with Lapiz as the accent:

  1. How is it possible that I don't own any of these polishes? It's a crying shame really because I LOVE THEM BOTH! Oh, man oh man. And of course your polka dots are totally spot (see what I did there? haha) on! Happy weekend friend!

  7. Oooo! So pretty, Bailey! And I love that you mixed up the colours on your left and right hand. And, obviously, the dots are freaking perfect. I love how you do the half ones at the bottom. I never remember to start that low! This is another win, friend! A big one!

    1. That's so nice of you to say Tessa! It takes SO MUCH PRACTICE. For proof, please see any of my nail polish posts from a year ago haha. I can't stay away from the cuticle either - I just have to take the time to clean up the cuticles with a tiny paintbrush dipped into acetone!
