This one one falls under "YouTube Made Me Buy It" because I wouldn't have given it a second glance until after I watched a few reviews of Essie's Spring 2014 collection. This is Fashion Playground, which they describe as, "Fun and games just met their match. this plucky pistachio green with subtle shimmer flirts with forever and plays for keeps."
Green of any shade is normally not my thing but this is the prettiest pastel shade and what makes it a hit with me is the shimmer. It's just barely visible in the bottle, and only faint traces can be seen on the nail but it's what prevents the color from being flat and really pulls everything together for one of the loveliest colors in my collection. I've been pleasantly surprised by how often I reach for this to wear.
