Hey everyone! Today I have the Essie Summer 2013 collection for you. I love this collection! It's my favorite summer collection so far. These colors are all so bright and fun! There are five shimmers and one creme. When I first got this collection, the formulas were really bubbly for me after they dried. I don't know why this happened because the formulas weren't very thick and I always wait for each coat to try before adding the next to prevent bubbles. So much for that. Anyway, I ended up adding one or two drops of thinner to each bottle. Even though this made the formulas pretty thin (obviously! haha) and requiring more coats, it made the bubbles go away! Lets get started :)
Next is Rock The Boat, a light blue shade with periwinkle undertones. Yet again, the shimmer is very subtle in this, but it adds a nice dimension to the polish. I don't know why but this color made my camera photograph my skin yellow! I wish I was that tan ;) The formula was good - the first coat was a bit streaky but it evened out just fine (keep in mind I thinned these polishes before these swatches!). I used three coats for the picture below.
Thanks for stopping by!
