Previous posts and a quick glance at my stash will tell you how much I love Essie polishes. Great formula. Check. Wide brush. Check. Gorgeous shades. Check. Super lasting power. Check! So I knew it was only a matter of time before I found myself in Boots, picking up the Essie Summer 2013 Collection. I mean, I tried to tell myself that I didn’t need them but who was I kidding, it happened!
I have been wearing these none stop since I first laid hands on them. It may have been raining cats and dogs here recently but it is firmly Summer on my nails. My favourite of the trio is Sunday Funday. This is the one I wanted the most but my Boots was out of stock so I picked up the mini collection with 5ml of each shade. €12.99 for one regular size or €19.99 for the set. Girl maths…
Sunday Funday is a coral toned pink. So right up my street. I promise I didn’t just want it for the name. I adore this one. It is exactly what I have in mind when I think of a Summer colour. Naughty Nautical is a turquoise/teal shade and lastly Full Steam Ahead has a cool toned lilac hue. All three have a slight shimmer running through them. I’m personally not too fond of shimmer on me but this is very subtle, only visible on the nails in certain lights and gives them a little something extra.
Ah Essie, thank you for your never-ending parade of pretty, I heart you so!
