Island Hopping by Essie.

So...about this polish. I was taking full inventory of every Essie polish that Walgreens had when I stumbled upon one that wasn't a "normal Essie". By normal Essie I mean, a sheer light pink or pastel. Isn't it true? Because of this I just had to have it. Although the color is pretty, I'm not sold. The application was only so-so, a bit thick compared to the other experiences I've had with Essie polishes. Not surprisingly this polish chipped in about 1 1/2 days of wearing it. I used this polish over break so I wasn't really doing any hands on activities either, hmmm. (sleeping doesn't really require much of that lol). Well, for what it was worth I'd say it was a worthwhile purchase. The color was just brown enough so it's not a "pink"..more of a mauve haha. I love how I have to talk myself out of colors being pinks so I will like them more, such a bad habit of mine. ($8)
How do you guys like this color? Have any of you tried it and had trouble with the consistency like I did?
P.S- Don't you just wish you could have an in house nail shaper extraordinaire sometimes. My shape is getting just a little too unruly for me. Maybe it's time for a real nail salon manicure hehe.
