Soft muted greenish-greyish aqua jelly-creme. Perfect formula, not thick or thin, no streaks, very shiny finish. A single thick coat is a gorgeous jelly that can be worn as is, or add a second coat and it becomes a creme.
This green-leaning "Tiffany" blue is a ladylike and elegant choice compared to other shades that scream aqua! It has a powdered soft grey undertone that gives it a vintage 50's vibe. I love the look, but like most things with a grey undertone it looks dirty on my very fair skin. I'm going to try Mint Candy Apple instead which I think will look cleaner on me. I have seen it on girls with a pink undertone, or more tanned skin and I love how it looks on them just not on me.

Turquoise & Caicos is a gorgeous, aqua blue with a nice, built-in shiny finish. Usually, my nails chip very easily, but with a base and top coat, this lasted a solid 5 days, with only minor tip wear after 8 days. It's a thinner polish, a three-coater, but it layers nicely and goes on easily without streaking. The handle is short and plastic, not rubberized, and the brush is average. I didn't find it cumbersome or difficult to use. The quality and color is great for a great price, too.

Yet another color from my favorite category (mint/jade/aqua). This has kind of a jelly touch, which I adore.

This was my very first Essie polish I bought & it was exactly the color I was looking for! Essie like OPI are a lil on the expensive side but they more then make up for it with the quality of there polishes. This was perfect in 3 coats. I used it so much I even bought a back up bottle! =D

I really love the colour of this nail polish for summer, with a tan! It pulls pretty green on my fair skin but it`s such a fun colour. However, it takes forever to put on. It's so streaky and light on application that it needs 3 or 4 coats to make it look opaque. I don't have time for that and I worry that if my polish is too thick, it won't stay on that long.
For me personally, with almost all Essie polishes, the formula sucks and the staying power isn't that great either. For the cost of Essie polishes in Canada, it just isn't worth it. I really wish Essie would come out with a better formulation and I would definitely buy more polishes from them. I continually buy Essie polishes hoping that the staying power on my nails will be more than 1 hour and I get disappointed every time and then hardly ever wear them again because it annoys me to have chipped nails.
Edit: I am currently attempting to paint my nails with this colour. I`m on coat number three and some of my nails are streaky at the bottom and you can still see the white tips of my nails through the polish. I tend to wait 10 minutes in between coats, so this polish takes a good bit of my time and I don`t think it`s worth it.

I love this color. It is great for summer. It is a muted turquoise and looks amazing with a tan. I like to wear this on my nails and use Mint Candy Apple on my ring finger -- just to mix it up a bit.

When I saw this product at the store it looked awesome, so I bought it.
The color first of all is very sheer. I had to use 4 coats to get it opaque. The color was in between tiffany blue and lime green. But the formula was horrible. I dont know what Essie was thinking when they came up with this color.
Weighting in the cost and the shade, I dont think this product is worth it.

oh turquoise and caicos, how I love you. I believe every girl should have this colour it is amazing. Enough said. The formula, colour, staying power, all of it is right where it should be :-)

Love the colour but hate the brand. Formulation and brush have me pulling other brands.
Here are some similar colour options, from other brands, in my stash:
- Orly's Ancient Jade : more opaque, almost exact
- Illamasqua's Nomad : more bright (neon like bright)
- Sephora's Read my Palm : darker (favourite)
- Julep's Robin : darker & more blue, I feel has exact same formulation and brush issues for more $
- Loreal's Club Prive & Note a Cloud in Sight : darker & more blue
- China Glaze's For Audrey : more blue
- Sinful Colour's Mint Candy Apple : more green & sparkles
