Essie Spring 2010: Van D'Go


Essie Van D'Go (2 coats)

So when I got Van D'Go from the Essie Spring 2010 collection I thought it was going to be a creamy pink polish. Unfortunately when it is applied, it really turns into a peachy pink color (and heavy on the peach). Some were saying applying a quick dry topcoat caused the change in color, but what you see above is without a topcoat. I'm just really underwhelmed with this one. As you guys I can tell, I don't buy Essie polishes often (a girl can only have so many light pinks), but I recently saw their next collection and it really looks promising (sorry I don't have any pictures yet). Application on this one was pretty annoying since it was thick and would pool at the edges of my nails. Try to thin it out and apply thin coats. Overall, meh.

This is a pretty spring color, how does this compare the CG-Peachy Keen??

Jackie, I'll have to check that out for you! In the bottle they look really different.

I know how you feel about things looking different on the nails. It can get quite frustrating, but I think this looks nice on you as well. I've been looking for a shade like that for a minute.
