REVIEW of Essie's Go Overboard with SWATCHES (comparison to O.P.I. Ski Teal We Drop and Revlon Fashionista)

I'm going to keep this review short because this color is just a basic dark teal creme polish and I have a ton of swatches that can explain the look and color a lot better than I can. I think this is a really pretty, sophisticated dark nail color. It sort of vacillates from a darker green to a true teal to a navy depending on the lighting. It applied really nicely though not as perfectly as some of my other Essie polishes. There were no major issues. It just wasn't "as perfect." My one complaint is it seems to pick up smudges very easily but that could be due to the old bottle of Seche Vite I am using.

I also thought I would do a comparison to the other teals in my collection. That will be below after the rest of the swatches.

CONCLUSION: I would recommend Essie's Go Overboard. It is a very pretty true teal. I would recommend it over Revlon's Fashionista which applies terribily and is a bit darker and has more green to it. I don't think you need to choose between Go Overboard and O.P.I.'s Ski Teal We Drop. The O.P.I. is a darker color with more blue. The Essie is a brighter color with more green.
