ESSIE Barefoot in Blue & As Gold As It Gets

Pin It I have a few Essies, maybe a handful? They were in my bag o' polish I brought with me to Tejas because there were a few I haven't tried. Barefoot in Blue happened to be one of them!

Combo after the jump!

I got Barefoot in Blue in a Giveaway Toms and Essie had Feb/March-ish. I filled out the form on Tom's Facebook page and kind of forgot about it haha. It was a nice surprise to find this in the mail one day!

Here is 2 coats of Barefoot in Blue:

 Barefoot IB is a pretty cornflower-periwinkle-ish blue creme, I ROCK DESCRIPTIONS! I'm a sucker for Essie's blues and greens and this one is a pretty polish I'm happy to have! It went on pretty smoothly in 2 coats and dried in an acceptable amount of time. I compared this to Coat Azure and Smooth Sailing and they didn't look similar side by side in the bottles.

As pretty as this is on it's own, I added 2 coats of As Gold As It Gets (SUPER pretty small gold flakies, aka my favorite Luxeffects) to the tips a little jaggedly. I'm liking how this came out :]

Were any of you lucky enough to get a bottle of Barefoot in Blue?? I'm not sure where you can find this, probably Blog Sales if you're lucky! Or, even Make Up Alley? I don't go on there haha. Here is a link to an eBay search, there's 4 listed on there if you're interested!

Hope you enjoyed this! :D I have another guest post for you tomorrow! Keep an eye out, I probably won't get to announce it on Facebook, we'll be driving back to SC all day >.< Have a rockin' weekend!

Until... Monday,


  1. I never even thought about pairing the two! Very pretty :)

    1. I didn't either! When you bring like 15 polishes on vacation with you, it makes you think of awesome combos! haha

  2. I got one of the Barefoot in Blue polishes, and like you, I had forgotten about it, so it was a surprise.

    The color combo is very pretty on you. I also love AGAIG!

  3. As Gold As It Gets just looks good on everything, doesn't it? Lovely mani!
