Essie Armed and Ready Swatch

Hey girls.

I needed a break from the bright colors I've been sporting lately and I had a color in my stash that I was going to wait til fall to use, even though it came out in a spring collection.. Anyways. Here is Essie Armed and Ready, a great dark green with gold shimmer throughout. I see other color shimmers in there but I don't know. Below is two coats with top coat:

Nevermind the fingerprints all over the bottle...

Formula wise, I almost love this. It's thin and watery but very pigmented. I would love it if it didn't have the tendency to pool in your cuticles. If only, huh?

What do you think? Do you like this? I'm sure I'll love this in the fall. Let me know, thanks for reading! :D 


  1. this color is STUNNING! i seriously love the shimmer!

  2. OMG, I love this! It is now currently on my want list - it's so gorgeous & I love the shimmer!

  3. Oh, I love this color! I have it too. :)

  4. I LOVE this! It is such a great fall color. I'm sad I've never seen it before! Haha.
