Love this polish. The colour is gorgeous, the perfect green for me (I wear cool-tones) and it covers well. Very happy with this purchase. I was debating between First Timer and Turquoise & Caicos, as they are similar. First Timer is ideal if you want a brighter, deeper shade than T&C gives.

I just bought this colour today and its gorgeous. I'm not a big green fan. I don't like wearing green that had a yellow tone, but this one doesn't. It has a blue tone, but its more green than blue. The pictures doesn't do it justice. Its a true green in my opinion. Its between medium and bright shade. Covers well in 2 coats. I'm so glad I bought this nail polish.

I bought this in the summer and I find it to be the perfect shade of green for spring/summer. Its vibrant and eye catching.
Goes on well and lasts.

I bought this colour to match a dress I have, and it is a fairly close match. Seems to be a half shade darker on the nail than it appears in the bottle. Decent formula (I'm no expert) that isn't too difficult to apply or anything like that. Looks best with two coats, but I think that's pretty standard for nail polish.

The colour is great for summer. I found the formula thick and quite streaky to apply but the finish is nice. I wish the Essie brushes were a little wider and softer but the colour makes up for the shortcomings!

This is a beautiful green from Essie. The formula was thicker/more pigmented than usual Essie and I found it was pretty much a 1 coater. I didn't find any streakiness like the other reviewer mentioned. A gorgeous green to add to your collection!
One thing to note: I used Seche Vite as my top coat, and it made the green change colors a bit. Turned it more of a green with yellow tones than a green with blue tones. I didn't like it and will be using a different top coat the next time I wear this color.

Wow! Pics online do not do this colour justice! It is just stunning on the nail, the perfect sun kissed colour. Streaky first coat (but what essie isn't?) completely opaque on the second. I love that the formula seems a bit thicker/more pigmented then normal Essie's colours.
