Sweet treats of colour for your fingertips

Essie-In-The-Cab-ana-Resort-2013-nail-polish-collection-The Essie In The Cab-ana Resort 2013 collection was released last month and this year, the collection featured two new PPD (Professional Products Division) exclusive colours. I’ve always been a fan of Essie’s Resort collections but is this year any different?

 

 

 

 

The collection is described as:

 

Beautiful. Beguiling. Brazen. She’s sexy and she knows it. Not one to mince  words, she believes boundaries are for breaking – in fashion and in life. She works hard and plays even harder.

 

The five colours I bought were:

Essie In The Cab-ana Resort 2013 Collection


Essie-Resort-2013-Come-Here-nail-polish-collection

Essie-Resort-2013-Come-Here-nail-polish-collectionCome Where! is an opaque bright corally red creme polish with an impressive super pigmented first coat. The colour is even more luminous in person; very close to being a neon polish but it dried rapidly with a shiny finish. With two medium thick coats of polish, the polish levelled off nicely and the colour was beautiful.


 

Essie-Resort-2013-First-Timer-nail-polish-collection

Essie-Resort-2013-First-Timer-nail-polish-collectionFirst Timer is a medium mint creme in the bottle however once sealed with a topcoat, the colour changes and adjusts to a more vivid neon-like lime green with strong yellow undertones. It’s the weirdest thing. I liked the new colour but I definitely preferred the original shade without a top coat. The formula applied slightly streaky with the first coat but all gaps were covered with a thick second coat.


 

Essie-Resort-2013-In-The-Cab-ana-nail-polish-collection

Essie-Resort-2013-In-The-Cab-ana-nail-polish-collectionIn The Cab-ana is a captivating medium turquoise in a creme finish. The formula was an absolute dream to work with. I applied two medium thick coats and there were no visible brush strokes or patches but instead a smooth, full coverage block of colour. Not to mention, a very glossy finish.


 

Essie-Resort-2013-Under-Where-nail-polish-collection

Essie-Resort-2013-Under-Where-nail-polish-collectionUnder Where? is a is a lovely lilac creme with strong pink under tones. The first coat left a few streaks but the addition of a second coat resolved that issue. Again this polish was very self levelling and I simply adored this pinky lilac. I must admit, it isn’t an original shade and I do own a few polishes in this colour but I think it compliments my skin tone so I do wear it quite often.


 

Essie-Resort-2013-Nice-Package-nail-polish-collection

Essie-Resort-2013-Nice-Package-nail-polish-collectionNice Package is a peachy pink hue. This is one of the salon exclusive shades. The polish glided on perfectly with no streaks and with a thin second coat, my nails were completely covered. With a gorgeous gloss and saturated colour, this formula worked great for me.

Total Score

I am slightly disappointed with the colours as I've loved the previous Resort collections as they've always offered a quartet of eclectic colours. However, these colours and formulas were impressive. They worked well together but didn't excite me too much. Highlights? In The Cab-ana and First Timer (but without a top coat).
