When I was approached by ObsessedLook.Com to try out two shades of Essie’s 2014 Resort Collection, I was super excited. For one I love Essie’s polishes because they are gorgeous colours that last a long time without chipping. Secondly, I love finding out about new ways to get beauty products delivered right to my door. This is where ObsessedLook.Com comes into the picture. This is a Canadian company that ships for free, that’s right, free shipping with no minimum purchase. And their prices are super reasonable as well as the shipping was fast. I think I’m in love! Each nail polish is $8.95 CAN on their website and $30 CAN for all four shades.
So here’s Essie’s 2014 Resort Collection:
I decided to take Cocktails & Coconuts and Resort Fling for a test drive. First up is Cocktails & Coconuts which is a beautiful beige putty coloured neutral with tiny silver sparkles in it. It’s truly the perfect shade to wear with all the neon and bright coloured clothing we are seeing for summer. This shade would also look great in the evening with a sparkly gold top coat over top. I ended up doing two coats with it but even one coat looked rather pretty.
Next is Resort Fling. When I first saw the colour, it looked so yummy I wanted to eat it! Coral and peach are everywhere this summer so this nail polish is right on trend. It is a light, peach colour that is shiny but has no sparkles. I did two coats with this shade because with one coat it was barely noticeable. If you want an even darker colour, this polish dries so quickly that you could do three coats in no time.
Hope this post gives you some great colour ideas for your nails this summer!
