Essie’s Summer collection is always highly anticipated and something to look forward to, and this years collection does not disappoint. The collection covers all the bases perfectly in my opinion with a mix of bright colours and more muted shades, all of which I think would be flattering on a lot of skin tones, and all of which are right up my street.
I had such a hard time finding them and when I finally did they only had a few left and only one that I actually wanted to get. I haven’t been able to find them since so some online searching for the rest may be in store for me.
The one shade I did get it Chillato. It’s a gorgeous lime yellow nail polish that’s opaque in two to three coats.
On me I think it pulls a bit more to the yellow side but I’ve seen it appear more green on other people. I have a thing for yellow nail polish, I was obsessed with OPI Life Gave Me Lemons last summer, and this year I’m obsessed with this!
The only other shade they had in boots when I found them was Peach Side Babe which is beautiful but a bit too similar to Tart Deco, which I love, for me to justify getting both.
I really wanted to get Private Weekend, a lovely bright white, which in the bottle looks like it has a slight shimmer but in swatches doesn’t appear to show through.
I think all the colours in this collection would amp up even the slightest hint of a tan which is maybe why I need them all!
