Essie Resort is a new 4 piece collection created so that you could “discover your inner Hollywood starlet.”
Essie Weingarten wanted to inspire women to bring out their inner glamour and get you to come out and play with these fun shades. This collection was inspired by Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly.
The formula, as with the vast majority of Essie polishes, was spot on. Not too thick or thin. Not too sheer, and all perfect in 2-3 coats.
Pink-A-Boo is a sheer-ish baby pink with iridescent micro glitter. So pretty! The glitter is mostly blue and pink, and it definitely makes this one special. Without it it would just be a standard pale pink shade. I used three coats to get it completely opaque and I love the way it looks. It is very similar to Jessica Rolling Rose. In fact, just looking at photos of them I would say they are basically dupes except a slight variation in the shimmer color, which is subtle.
She’s Picture Perfect
She’s Picture Perfect is a picture perfect lilac shimmer. My heart beats faster when I see these kinds of colors because I love them so much. The shimmer is blue and pink. Ugh, perfection. This one was a tiny bit thick so use thinner coats and wait a bit in-between each one. I used two coats here and did the second one too soon which left me with a thick area on my middle finger. Otherwise it’s perfect!
Sure Shot is a bright magenta shimmer. The shimmer is a hot pink shade, which makes this baby glow! Very pretty color for summer, great formula. This was two coats.
No More Film
No More Film is a deep violet creme. Very deep. It almost leans blue, but it really is more violet. Nice vampy shade. I like dark shades like this, but maybe it’s not that unique.
Overall: Great collection. I really like that Essie doesn’t put out HUGE collections because sometimes I feel like the companies that do, put out a lot of boring repeated colors. These are all colors I really like and definitely would wear. My favorites two were She’s Picture Perfect and Pink-A-Boo.
