Essie Summer Collection 2013: The More the Merrier

2013 is a green number, isn't it? Just seems green to me. Almost the green of this nail polish, but with less yellow.  This green I would describe as chartreuse, a color I once believed to be some kind of pink based upon the way it was described in The View from Saturday, I believe.

It looks a bit greener in real life than in this picture, but as I write this, I'm sitting in the shadows of an awning, watching a rainstorm and the ocean, and thus true color pictures are proving a little difficult to capture. I'd rather be getting a tan, it's true, but this is quite relaxing.

This is a creme finish, the only one I believe, from the summer collection, and coverage is quite good in two coats. I thought the color might make me look a bit sallow, but I'm finding it perfectly lovely in a I-won't-be-able-to-get-away-with-this-shade-in-five-years kind of way. I'm feeling pretty mellow right now and perhaps am incapable of describing the depths of my feeling for this color, but I think it'll be on repeat until the leaves change color.
