Essie Armed and Ready

A while ago I fell in love with Essie’s Armed and ready thanks to the fantastic swatches by work / play / polish. Because I think it’s a unique shade Iย wanted to have it… By that I mean right away ๐Ÿ˜€
After searching almost every website that I know of I came across Melanie’s blog: The Color Palette Blog. She has her own webshop where you can find a lot of polish ๐Ÿ˜€ You really need to check it out! It’s written in Dutch, but she ships internationally!

And there it is… Armed and ready ๐Ÿ˜‰
It’s a army green with golden shimmer. In my opinion the golden shimmer makes this beauty unique. It’s hard to photograph the shimmer, so get ready for some picture spam ๐Ÿ˜€
The first two pictures are the most color accurate. The third one shows the gorgeous golden shimmer (made under a lamp).

  1. I have this one and it’s nearly impossible to see the gold shimmer on the nail in most lighting – it’s one of ‘those’ that you see kind of in the bottle but does not translate to the nail all that well..but that said, it’s a pretty shade – not too into the dank, dark side of this color hue. To me this is not in the green family but is in the deep taupe family.
