Pink Wednesday: Essie Peach Daquiri!

It's Pink Wednesday!!  Have you other bloggers joined this yet?  I think it's such a cute idea.  I didn't get to participate last week so I'm pretty excited to do my first one today!

Anyhow...I love Essie because I feel like a majority of the colors I see when I look at their display are pinks.  But it might be because I'm biased and love pink....

I bought my mom Essie's Peach Daquiri a while back and she said it was too pink for her so I stole borrowed it back.  Granted when I think of a peach daquiri I think of a wonderous orange-y alcoholic beverage, however Essie seems to think peach daquiri falls under their "corals" category...I must have some sort of "male mindset" of color separation because I think this shit is pink.

Apologies for the kind of lax clean up on the nails.  The outdoor picture is a pretty good representation of the actual color (compared to some of the other pictures I've been taking lately!).  The formula went on well, it was a little runnier than the last China Glaze polish I used, but I didn't have any major problems.  I believe these pictures show three coats. 

Overall I think I've decided I need every pink in the Essie collection.  Once I get money I'll work on that...

Hope you all are having a good week so far!
