Essie Bouncer It's Me


For today's post I have Essie's Bouncer It's Me from the 2013 Neon collection for summer.  I don't know if it's just me, but this one a quite a bit darker than a lot of swatches I've seen online.  It has me starting to wonder if it was miss labeled.  It's a bright medium blue jelly that applies and dries satiny just like a neon and it was such a pain in the ass.  It wasn't too thick and I didn't have trouble controlling it, but it was streaky and sheer.  It's a pretty color, but definitely not worth the drama.

This is 4 coats.


  1. It's pretty too bad about the formula.

  2. Gorgeous color, but you're right, with all the polishes out there bad formula is not worth the drama!

    1. Definitely! Some polishes are worth the drama. This one definitely isn't.

  3. Beautiful color and your nails are stunning!

  4. I'm pretty late to be commenting, but this exact same thing happened to me when I bought this.

    Later, I went back online and saw that some of the swatches I had drooled over earlier actually had a layer of white polish underneath as "underwear". So, I'm going to try that under "Bouncer, it's me" next time and see if I can get the brighter blue that I thought this was when I bought it.

    Your nails are great too by the way... I have short nail beds, so I'm extremely jealous!
