Review: Essie Summer Collection 2013

Essie become more widely available in England last Autumn and last Christmas they did a mini set of their Christmas collection and I decided against it as I had a number of similar colours. When I saw the Summer collection I couldn’t resist as all the colours were gorgeous and getting the minis was the most cost effective way for me to try most of the colours.

If you, like myself, walked past the Essie stand a few times and thought they all looked quite similar to a number of colours Essie have in their permanent line we were both wrong. The similarities made me ignore them a couple of times before I actually picked them up and looked at them. They all have a fine pearlescent glitter in them which is a hell of a lot easier to get off than other glitter polishes.

All these polishes last about 2 days without a base or top coat and about 5 days with a strong top coat. These polishes look great on their own or as an accent nail.

Have you tried any of the colours from the Summer Collection?

Thanks for reading 🙂
