It's no secret I'm in love and obsessed with both Essie Lilacism and Essie Mint Candy Apple at the moment, but I also realize that both of those colors fall more into the 'Spring nail polish shades' category more than they do into 'Summer nail polish shades'. Luckily, I have a few other favorites set and ready to go the second Summer hits :)
L to R:
Essie Turquoise and Caicos
Salley Hansen Barracuda
Essie Splash of Grenadine
Cue haggard cuticles!
Thumb:: Essie Splash of Grenadine, a medium pinky-purple.
Pointer Finger:: Zoya Diana, a true red.
Middle Finger:: Sally Hansen Barracuda, a Robin's Egg blue with a hint of mint.
Ring Finger:: Zoya Tobey, an almost neon, hot pink.
Pinky Finger:: Essie Turquoise and Caicos, a minty turquoise.
All shades are shown with 2 coats, and none of them have glitter or shimmer whatsoever. They're all gorgeous colors with fantastic formulas (hence why they're worthy of being included in this post!), but in all honesty, the huge brush of Sally Hansen Barracuda is kind of super annoying to use. Just sayin'. And I just wanted to add that with the lighting not being absolutely perfect, Essie Turquoise and Caicos actually looks a lot darker and greener in the swatch than it really looks in real life. Oh well - I tried.
What will you be wearing on your nails this Summer?
