Essie Too Taboo
2 coats over a base of Essie Blanc
topped with Cover Girl City Lights
Last year I bought the mini set of Essie Neons from 2014, and I decided to give it a try last week. I first did a base of the Blanc that was included in the set, and it was no bueno. Very patchy and uneven, but I went ahead and pushed forward with the color. I did two coats of Too Taboo and followed with a coat of NYC Grand Central Station.
The resulting mani was just.... lacking. I had hoped that the color would balance out the uneven white, but it didn't. It just gave me uneven color.
So I did what I always do with a failed mani, I topped it with holo goodness. Much better!
