Essie The Resort Collection

We finally had a few hours of sunshine in Vancouver the other day so I took advantage of it and quickly ran outside to swatch a few polishes for you guys! =)

I got the Essie Resort minis because I kinda figured I already own enough nail polish to last me three lifetimes and I'd never be able to use up the full size bottles anyway. Lol!

I loveee this new collection from Essie and is incredibly impressed with the all the colours. The formulas on these are very similar in texture, they are very thin and applies like butter. =) The first coat goes on sheer, the second coat evens everything out, and the third coat makes it opaque. There is also a squishy, jelly-like consistency to these too! ♥

  1. The pink is a real bubble-gum pink, but my favorite is the blue. :)

  2. I ended up with all 4 eventually, and was really pleased with all of them. I was surprised how much I like the Grenadine, I think it is somewhat violet-pink. Your pictures are great!

  7. I love the first three, but Playa del Platinum is kind of boring and doesn't really match my skin very well, so I passed on it. All very cute and spring-y!

  8. Hi Wan! You are doing a wonderful job of selling Essie; The Resort Collection to me. There isn't a shade I dislike on your beautiful finger nails. It's going to make choosing one EXTREMELY difficult! Mmmm, I'm off to see if Adore Beauty Australia sells these. Thank you, Wan <3 Danielle xx
