Today, I have Essie's Naughty Nautical Summer 2013 collection to share with you guys. This collection consist of 2 soft shades and 4 bright shades.
Naughty Nautical. Described as a "marine blue-green shimmer".
The formula is easy to work with. Shimmers are not gritty/chunky. Opaque in 2-3 coats.
Sunday Funday. Described as a "tangerine coral crush shimmer".
I love corals! And I love Sunday Funday! The formula is easy to work with and color payoff is great with 2 coats. Shimmers are fine...so quite beautifully sparkly!
The More The Merrier. Described as a "juicy lime green".
This is the creme of the bunch and the hardest to work with. The formula was thick and streaky. It takes 3-4 coats for a even application. This shade reminds me of OPI Did it on 'em but brighter.
The Girls Are Out. Described as a "fuchsia peony sparkle".
Again, formula was good and application was easy. Good to go with 2 coats.
Full Steam Ahead. Described as a "pearlescent punch lilac".
This is one of the soft shades, a lilac/lavendar shade. Formula is easy to work with and can get away with 2 coats. The shimmer is quite fine in this one too so it's very sparkly up close but can pass for a creme from a distance.
Rock The Boat. Described as a "shimmering french blue".
The other soft shade of the collection. Once again, the shimmers in this one is beautiful. The formula is good but application is somewhat streaky. Will take at least 3 coats for a even application. The picture below was with 2 coats. This shade reminds me of Essie Bikini So Teeny without the purple hue.
Overall, I really like this collection. There's nothing special about the shades(because we've seen similar colors before)but the formula is great. And the shimmer particles/amount in these are just perf!
