Essie Da Bush is from the Spring 2011 Resort Collection. When I first saw it, I just had to have it as it reminded of Sew Psyched, just a lighter version. I ended up not getting Sew Psyched as I thought I didn’t want it anymore. Obviously that’s not the case, guess I will get that too eventually *sigh*. I find the greyish greens to be very interesting nail shades.
Da Bush is a pale pea green creme with sort of a grey undertone. It reminds me of split pea soup, quite garish but I love it. The formula is great. There were no application issues and it had decent opacity in two coats. Now you guys know that I don’t go topless… er, I mean I don’t skip out on my topcoat. So where is it you ask… It’s waiting for “da bling”.
2 coats, No topcoat
I decided to get a little fancy and add a design. I used China Glaze Cracked Concrete Crackle to create a diagonal “crackle tip”, created the silver strip with an L.A. Colors design polish and topped with Seche Vite. Finally, my top coat. I noticed that Cracked Concrete took on an olive tone when placed over Da Bush. I likey!
So what ye say on Da Bush? Yay or Nay?
