Essie Nail Polish | Go Overboard - Review + Swatch

Essie Nail Polish | Go Overboard, $8.00
We may be heading firmly into autumn, but that's no reason to put away our brighter hues. Berry shades might be the trend in cooler months, but today's deep sea blue polish is gorgeous enough to make any girl want to buck tradition. If you're still longing for days spent sitting on the beach, then this nail lacquer might be right up your alley!

Essie Nail Polish in Go Overboard is a gorgeous dark teal with subtle green undertones. Reminiscent of the darkness of the ocean, it's a multi-faceted opaque polish that will send your heart seaside whilst still being perfect for colder autumn days. And, is it just me, or isn't it starting to stray into TARDIS territory? This could easily be the blue polish of choice for my fellow Whovians.

Go Overboard is opaque enough that one coat will absolutely do, and you won't be left with any streaks. However, I always like to build up any polish with a second coat, and two coats is what you see here. I did notice that it bubbled a bit, so be really gentle with it. Don't shake it (or any polish, really) to mix it, but instead roll it lightly between your palms to keep bubbling to a minimum.

Again, this color is the perfect shade to help you transition into fall while holding on to the last bits of summer. Especially if you live in a warmer climate like I do where it's still in the 80s some days! Besides, the ocean is timeless, and is a great inspiration for any season, don't you think? I definitely recommend adding Essie's Go Overboard to your nail lacquer stash!

Do you have Essie's Go Overboard in your collection? What do you think is a good blue polish for autumn?



  1. Oh my goodness, I love this color! Definitely buying it the next time I'm out! It is such a perfect autumn color! It is a vibrant blue, yet still deep enough to not be summery. Love it.

  2. Ooh this colour is such a pretty shade. <3
    And that's a brilliant tip - not to shake the bottle but to rub it between your palms to stop it bubbling. I will definitely have to remember that one in the future :D
