Essie Go Overboard: Armed & Ready Nail Polish Pictures, Swatches, Review

"Armed & Ready" is one of 3 colors from Essie's "Go Overboard" collection that I picked up this week.  It is described by Essie as an, "army green with pearl".  It is dark with a golden shimmer mixed throughout.  In some lights, it looks very green toned, while in others it appears on the chocolate brown side- either way, it's a fantastic color:









This was such an easy polish to put on; only 2 layers needed, and it was very smooooooth. What do you think of 'Armed..'?

  2. There is absolutely NOTHING that I don't love about this shade!!! Murky olive green? Check! Fine gold inner shimmer? Check! Fabulous application? Check! Essie's pulled another rabbit out of the hat with this one....and it sort of reminds me of Dior's Exquis' older cousin or something, if you know what I mean? Maybe it's just me...!! Thanks for showing this - as always, looks fab on you!

    2. Yes, I hit the comment button to say it reminds me of Exquis too. But I think Exquis is more brown than green and the gold shimmer is stronger and more yellow-y golden in Exquis where this is more murky and green. WOuld be interesting to see a comparison.
