This is one of those colors that Essie would have never made 6 years ago. But I wrote about how when Essie started getting really popular, they also started producing more brights.
Essie’s Resort collections have been great little collections in the last couple of years. They’re always fun colors.
First Timer was part of Essie’s 2013 Resort Collection. It’s a bright, saturated turquoise that leans on the more green side. It’s a perfect summer green that feels super tropical and happy.
The formula is a little stubborn though. It’s opaque, as you can see, as the photo is 2 coats. It eventually dries down very opaque and shiny. It just is slightly thick and can pull a little on itself when you apply that second coat.
It’s a gorgeous color so I deal with the formula. It’s also different than most of the other greens I have. China Glaze’s Four Leaf Clover is the closest I have to this, but it’s darker.
First Timer is still available on Essie’s website and I’ve seen it recently at CVS, so I’m assuming that it’s permanent, for now. Essie polishes retail for between $8 and $9 at drugstores across the U.S.
