Essie Resort Collection Swatches & Review

Essie Resort is a new 4 piece collection created so that you could “discover your inner Hollywood starlet.”

Now I know this is kind of mind blowing because we are so used to the fairly tame pinks, red and oranges with an occasional blue or dark vampy color tossed in. But I can’t remember a green from them ever, at least not in my nail polish collecting lifetime.

The formula on these was really quite good. Most were just two coats and I had no issues to speak of.
