|Essie First Timer|
The name of this polish is actually quite cheeky, as it's a play on the term that newbies (or First Timers) are green. But Essie assures "Fresh. Fun. Fabulous. Try something totally unexpected like adorable newbie green nail lacquer and you'll want to do it again and again" (from Essie.com). Cheeky, indeed!
First Timer has a lovely cream finish that is nearly opaque. Two thin coats were all that was needed to obtain full coverage and rich colour. In the tube it looks slightly pastel, but on the nails (especially as you add a second coat) it becomes more of a warm, grassy lime shade. I've been wearing the polish for 4 days so far and the wear has been excellent. Only minor chipping and the slightly shiny finish has been maintained perfectly. I'm in love!

Overall, I'm so pleased with this shade! The formula is top-notch and the shade is so cheery and unique. Will definitely be a staple during Spring and Summer!
Is this a shade you'd wear? Have I tempted you with it? What are some of your favourite green nail polishes?
Thanks for reading and have a sunny Monday! xo
