Hello my dears,
As promised, here is another of the Essie polishes I picked up the other day: Dive Bar.
I was really eager to try this polish as it's color reminded me of a scarab and I love those little beetles.
I was hoping the teal/purple duochrome effect would be as amazing on my nails as it was in the bottle, but was a bit disappointed... Nevertheless, the color is gorgeous and I don't regret my purchase.
As you can see, Dive Bar is a very dark, almost black shimmery teal polish.
Only two coats were needed to reach full opacity as the formula was great. No streaks, bubbles or bald patches whatsoever.
For my topcoat I used Essie's Out The Door, but I'm not crazy about it as it doesn't seem to be self leveling...
Have you tried Dive Bar?
