essie - Avenue Maintain

Hello Beauties!

I hope you had a good week and are ready to start this Friday. Only a few more hours until the weekend is finally here! I was experiencing some trouble with my SD card reader this week and have to have it looked at this weekend - so today I am going to show you a manicure I did quite a while ago, as you can see from my short nails. What I am wearing is essie - Avenue Maintain (822).
Avenue Maintain is a light blue creme polish with a glossy finish. I applied two coats for full coverage and the formula is fantastic. I had absolutely no trouble with this polish and also the brush was super easy to handle. It fanned out nicely and spread the polish evenly. Avenue Maintain dried pretty fast and as you can see with a highly glossy finish. I did not use a top coat for these swatches.
The colour is a bit darker and more intense than a baby blue, and reminds me of a bright, cloudless sky on a warm summer morning. Looking at it long enough you can almost see some white clouds passing by.
I really like the colour, but only with these short nails. Now that my nails are longer I can not imagine wearing it. But maybe this has something to do with summer being almost over too. I can't tell...
How do you like Avenue Maintain? Is this a colour you would wear too?

    1. I usually am the other way around with light blue polishes. I am very picky and can't stand them on my own nails even though I love them on everybody elses... Weired, I know. But this one is really gorgeous and I can totally recommend getting it.
