{Mani Monday} OPI Gone Gonzo & Essie Borrowed & Blue

If you remember, which I'm sure you don't, I used Essie's Borrowed & Blue for my Robin's Egg Nails last spring. This time I decided to pair it with OPI's Gone Gonzo, which is from the Muppet Collection that came out some time ago, but that I had never used. I think it came out very cute, it's definitely striking and reminds me of a sparkly Easter egg :)

I think I'll try Gone Gonzo with a marine blue next time, or maybe a peacock blue. In the meantime check out the other manicures in Mani Monday for inspiration.

My only criticism is that the mini Essie bottles have horrible brushes on them that leave the polish quite streaky. I ended up putting a pretty heavy second coat on and waited almost an hour for it to dry - I really didn't want to deal with dents, fingerprints, etc. In the end, as you can see, it came out just fine, but I definitely prefer the brushes in the full sized bottles.
