Although it is September and we are getting into the fall season, I have a few sweet colours from Essie’s Summer 2015 collection that will say a final farewell to summer and push my nails designs into the ‘autumn’ category.
Peach Side Babe includes:
- Chilato – pale yellow green
- Sunset Sneaks – coral-red
- Peach Side Babe – peachy colour with hits of pink
- Private Weekend – white with a slight shimmer
- Pret-a-surfer – navy blue
- Salt Water Happy – light periwinkle blue
I’m also sharing with you Essie’s new gel setter polish.
First I used Chilato and boy do I love this colour! At first glance you’d think it was a mint green but on closer inspection you see it has hints of yellow too that make it purely stunning. I just did a simple black and sparkle design over top so as to not distract from the gorgeous colour that Chilato is.
I used Essie’s gel setter top coat over this design and could actually tell a difference from a normal top coat. This polish is thicker and therefore gives a gel like look to the nail and makes it look more professional than many top coats do. I notice that with some top coats the shine they give off on the first day wears off after a while but this coat keeps your nails shiny until you want to take them off. This is definitely my new favourite top coat!
Then I combined Sunset Sneaks, Peach Side Babe and Private Weekend in a floral design. In the bottle, Private Weekend looks quite shimmery but on the nail the shimmer almost completely disappears. This was good for me because I like my whites with minimal sparkle, but if you’re looking for a shimmery white this is not the bottle for you. Sunset Sneaks and Peach Side Babe both impressed me and looked great side by side in this floral design.
I didn’t get to try out Salt Water Happy but that polish has now gained a spot on my bucket list and hopefully one day soon, I will get in off the shelf and onto my nails.
Have any of these gained a spot on your bucket list?
