Current Polish: Essie Borrowed and Blue (swatch & comparison)

Recently Essie released their 2011 Wedding Collection and what caught my eye were not the standard pinks, but the light blue, Borrowed and Blue. I love that Essie did a little twist on the standard wedding polishes and came out with a blue. My fellow nail polish addict and taste twin, Rachel, was raving about it as her new favorite light blue polish so I had to pick it up! I am definitely not disappointed as it is a gorgeous color and unique to anything I own. 

Essie Borrowed and Blue

Borrowed and Blue is a light blue. It's a lot lighter than your average light pastel blue (will get to that in a sec!) and has a lot of white in it. In the bottle it looks a bit grey but that doesn't translate much on the nail. This was two coats.

Essie Borrowed and Blue is great for a spring manicure that's clean yet colorful. I am loving this polish for spring and can see it being a winter color as well as it's not too "seasonal".


Have you picked anything up from the Essie Wedding Collection? Have you tried Borrowed and Blue? What do you think of it?
