Collection: Essie Spring 2013, Resort
If Avon’s Jade is a light, slightly pistachio-ed Paris Green, First Timer is like a candied, minted, properly toxic Paris Green. It’s a super vivid and cheerful color in bright sunlight. Honestly, I feel it’s a little distracting on my fingertips, haha! Definitely a pedi shade for me. Those who like it loud will love this.
The formula was a little thick and creamy, reminiscent of a neon/pastel formula even though this is not quite either one. I did find three thin coats were needed, as it streaked a bit.
