Essie - Navigate Her

Hello everyone,

I'm really behind with all the collections... Now I'm ill (but well enough to post this!) and I take advantage of this situation and post everything I can and is waiting to be published!! :)

From Essie navigate Her 2012 spring collection I've picked up the minis and now I'm waiting for A Crewed Interest to be available again on the website where I shop...
From the 4 minis I've only worn and swatched Navigate Her - until now :) The rest will surely come a little bit later.
Unfortunately I'm not very proud of the pictures quality nor of the mani itself... The cleanup was not one of my best and my cuticles were in a very bad shape... Sorry for that.

Anyways, I won't go into details with this colour as I guess most of you if not own it, at least already know it from other blogs.
I have to say that I liked this colour a lot, but the big disappointment is that this kind of green doesn't look good on me. Really. It makes my hands look "ill"... 

Also, I've had a problem with the chipping. This never made it to 24h without chipping, which is very bad even from a low quality polish. My friend Ruxi also told me that some of the latest Essie polishes have this problem... No comment.

So, here I'm wearing 2 coats of Essie Navigate Her + 1 coat of Seche Vite:

Because of the chipping problem I've had with this one, I decided to add a new criterion on my "polish grading system" ;): Wear.
I'll probably not consider it every time, because I don't always wear all the polishes I swatch...

In conclusion:

Application: 4.0/5
Formula: 4.0/5
Finish: 4.0/5
Drying time: 4.0/5
Opacity: 5.0/5
Wear: 1.0/5.0

Overall: 3.7/5

Thank you everyone for watching!
