Essie Bikini So Teeny is described as a sparkling cornflower blue. It's a lovely crisp shade of blue with micro shimmer. I used three coats in the swatches below. Though the micro shimmer is visible in the bottle, I don't see any on my nails.
It applied easily enough, but it required three coats to be fully opaque and completely hide the nail lines. I typically get about 5 days of wear from Essie polishes before the chipping and tip wear begins. Wear time really depends on your activities, job, and how hard you are on your hands in general, so you may get more or less out of your polish than I do.
I picked up Bikini So Teeny from Target, and I've seen it at CVS and Walgreens, too. You can probably find it at your local drugstore pretty easily, or buy it from Beauty.com or Amazon.com if online shopping is more your jam. ☺
