The More the Merrier

Another polish from Essie's Summer 2013 Collection called The More the Merrier. It is a bright mix of lime green and chartreuse. While I love the colour in the bottle, I'm not sure how I feel about it on my nails. It's a fun colour and somewhat unexpected. I'm always seeing this colour in accessories and costume jewelry, but I've never thought to wear it on my nails.

In terms of application, the creamy formula, while a little goopy, was opaque and even in three thin coats. It also has a fairly glossy finish without a top coat.

While I'm glad I picked it up, I'm not sure how much use I will get out of it. Perhaps it's better suited as an accent colour to a deep pink polish?

Would you wear this colour? Or does it seem a little more Halloween-ish than summer-ish? x

Essie "The More the Merrier," three thin coats, no top coat


  1. I find that this is an amazing color for the summer because it would look great with a tan!! But you are right I dont know if it would work with me!!

  2. I normally hate these types of chartreuse shades, but I have to admit that it looks really great on you! :)

  3. I actually really, really LOVE this on you - I think it complements your skin tone so well! I don't think I could pull this colour off as well as you. Gorgeous pictures! :)

  4. it's one of those "pretty-ugly" shades. personally not for me. On a sidenote this looks EXACTLY like CoverGirl's Appletini from the Glosstinis collection!
