NOTD: Essie Coat Azure

Essie's Spring Collection, A French Affair, included several beautiful pastels, and also this beautiful periwinkle blue with a hint of silver shimmer called Coat Azure.  I'm not usually a blue nailpolish girl, but this one definitely converted me.

This is a medium blue.  Just the slightest shimmer - it really takes the right lighting (i.e. natural light below) to capture it.  The formula is great - very smooth and easily applied.  Below is two coats. 

The color reminds me of spring, specifically the little vinca vines or myrtle that pop up around here in my garden - beautiful!
