Essie Dive Bar is a deep, blackened teal shimmer and as summer is winding to a close (it's still hot as all get out, maybe I just feel like that because my kiddos started school today. LOL), it's one of those colors that I will happily reach for when I'm in the mood for fall shades. I absolutely love this color, and I especially love the way it appears to deepen around the edges of my nails. The formula on Dive Bar was great and I was able to reach opacity in 2 coats.
Dive Bar first hit shelves back in 2010 as part of Essie's retail launch, but it was also re-released last year as part of a collection. You can find this color, as well as many other recently-released Essie polishes through Beauty Stop Online. Dive Bar was one of those colors that I had wanted when it came out, but then it got pushed to the back of my wishlist like many, many other colors. And as much as I love finally filling a long-time, HTF lemming, it's also nice to add those "easy-to-find, but not brand-new" polishes to your stash.
