Wowee, wow, WOW! Not only did Essie’s new Resort 2010 collection knock my socks off, but then it picked them up and ran away. I mean, I usually like the things Essie comes out with, but I haven’t been this stoked about one of their releases since Neon 2008 (I still le sigh when I see Bermuda Shorts).
Splash of Grenadine
OOH! The four-piece Resort collection takes me and my nails down to the spa with colors that remind me of tropical vacations, but not in the way that tropical-themed nail polish collections usually do. These shades aren’t your average beachy corals and hot pinks. Essie Founder and President Essie Weingarten went with these creamy bad boys, drawing inspiration from the chic vacationers who stay at Ritz Carltons and tan on private beaches in luxe island style.
Turquoise & Caicos
Not only did Essie hit the right color notes, but she rocked a flawless formula, too. I think all four of these shades are super easy to use.
- Texture: Some Essie polishes are extremely thick, and consequently can be a little hard to apply, but these have a texture that feels just right — not to thin, not too thick.
- Pigmentation: Two layers = complete coverage.
- Shine: I might be trippin’, but I swear these are glossier than usual for glossy polishes…

Playa Del Platinum
I ALL of these colors and think Essie really hit this one out of the park! This Resort opens next month. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
