Essie Armed and Ready

Good morning! Hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was pretty lazy, crappy weather Saturday then it rained most of Sunday so I did a little shopping and not much else haha! I finally managed to find the Essie Go Overboard Collection for Spring. I hear that people have been finding it for a while at Target but none of the ones by me have it out yet...I finally came across it at Walgreens and then only ended up buying the polish I'm showing you today. The Go Overboard Collection is 3 new polishes and 3 repromotes, the other 2 new polishes looked a little boring in person...I might go back for them eventually though.

Armed and Ready is a dark brown toned grey with a coppery shimmer. The shimmer in this is pretty hidden but out in the sun it's super gorgeous! The shimmer has a little bit of copper, red and gold! Inside and in low light the shimmer is pretty much non-existent...I could barely even seen it in the bottle in the store! I definitely don't have anything like this polish and I'm such a lover of hidden shimmer that even if I did have a dupe I don't think I'd mind haha! The formula was really nice, I used 2 coats for the photos below.




The Go Overboard Collection from Essie should be in stores now or very soon, I know people have found it at Target, Walmart and Walgreens, it retails for around $8 depending on where you buy it. I also came across a bottle of Armed and Ready (but not the other 2 new shades) at CVS mixed in with the core display of polishes...not sure why it was like that, maybe they aren't supposed to be out there yet or something. Anyway, I hope you can find this if you like it!

  7. That's really goreous, but not a color I'd think of for spring. Still, it looks like a great color for a night out.

  11. I really like this color! it's nice to see something more subtle, since lately all the new colors have been glitters and flakies (even though i LOVE them!)

  15. Random.  I never buy Essie, but I was in Walgreens and saw this today and thought it looked pretty boring in the bottle.  But, the color swatch they had and the name made me pause and then buy it.  Glad I checked your site to see that was your NOTD.  :)  It'll be next on my mani list.

  16. Not sure I need this shade. It's not speaking to me - not even a whisper. I have not seen the new spring Essie collection yet in my neck of the woods.

  17. I long does Essie last on your nails? Mine's been peeling or chipping in less than 24 hours! Is it just me?

  18. I typically don't wear the same mani for more than a day so I can't really speak too much about the wear time :( It however wears great for that day lol, never any chipping or tip wear
