Essie Summer 2012 Collection and Swatches

Clearly, I’m nail polish obsessed right now, hence all the fun tutorials and swatches. Essie’s summer 2012 collection reignited all the love that Maybelline’s collection quashed. The formula is just right – you can get near-opaque coverage in one coat, and two is just enough for an amazing look.  The entire collection has great vibrant colours that are right for just about any occasion.

Take a look at the colours below.

This is Bikini so Teeny, which is a pretty pastel cornflower blue.  Possibly my favourite colour of the bunch.

Then there’s All Tied Up – my least favourite. The bottle has tons of shimmer but it just didn’t translate on to my nails. It’s described as a rustic bronze, but wears more like a golden rose. It’s the only colour from the bunch with shimmer and feels more fall than summer.

Fear or Desire is a bright orange. It reminds me of Orange Crush…

Mojito Madness is probably the “it” colour of the summer. It’s a pretty pastel green that’s just perfect.

Off The Shoulder is a hot pink and I think it’s the perfect pedicure colour.

Cascade Cool is a Pepto Bismal pink – that’s the only way that I can describe it.
