Essie Shelter Island is a bright sky blue color with a jelly-like texture. I personally do not think that pictures do this color justice, in person, it almost glows! Out of the North Fork collection colors, this is easily the brightest. What you see now is three coats of color and topcoat. Application was fabulous, plain and simple, as I had no cuticle drag or goopy, thick polish. To be honest, this color really surprised me. Sky blue lacquers can be found almost anywhere, what makes this one unique is the finish: It's not an average creme, if it's a creme at all! After putting it on, I noticed that it takes on a jelly finish. Is this only my bottle?? I don't really mind if it's intentional or not because I love it!!! This little gem will just brighten your day!
