Today I’ve got most of the essie Summer 2016 collection for ya! This collection features six new shades all inspired by travels in the summertime. I WISH I was traveling this summer, but alas, I shall have to daydream of Antigua instead. Or wear it on my nails.
Most of these swatched beautifully with just two coats and no problems. Except one problem child. The two not shown are Berried Treasures (a pink creme) and Tribal Text-Styles (a black with shimmer).
Coconut Cove is a sweet cream shade. And yes, this was the problem child as you might guess. Whites usually are. I didn’t use a ridge-filling base coat and probably should have. If I had it might have worked with two coats, but I used three. It’s on the thicker more gloopy side.
Hiking Heels is a bright red lava creme. Very vivid and clear looking, but not unique.
Viva Antigua! is a turquoise green with iridescent shimmer. WOWZA. Now this is a serious beauty! Shimmery, opaque and stunning. Very mermaid-y.
Loot The Booty is a bright sapphire blue with blue and green shimmer. I promise in person you see the green shimmer in there and it’s just gorgeous.
Well I think it’s pretty clear that my picks for the most unique and prettiest shades here are Viva Antigua! and Loot The Booty. 🙂
These are available now and are around $8.50 each.
