Today I’ve got a stellar new nail polish collection to share with you — it’s the essie Summer 2016 line-up, and it’s gorgeous indeed!
Travel feeds the soul. Adventure excites the senses. For thrilling sights in an array of shades, Antigua is the place to just be. From St. John’s to English Harbor, the island’s colorful towns, gorgeous craft markets, tribal text-styles, and brilliant food excite the senses and are ripe for exploring! Drawing discerning travelers, the glittering waters, and beautiful island colors provide the ideal inspiration for the essie summer 2016 collection.
I’ve noticed that essie shades are starting to get a little more daring since Rebecca Minkoff became their Global Color Designer, and I’m so glad. I’ve always been an essie girl, but I have to say that it’s nice to see an expansion in the array of shades. There are still the great sheers and pale shades they are well-known for, but I feel the quality of the color is getting better.
I had no problems with application on any of these — two coats delivered perfect opacity. If you try Coconut Cove (white cream), please be aware it may streak on the first coat. After the second coat and top coat, it was perfect.
