Essie Haul

Beautybay.com has been offering free shipping for a few weeks now and I’ve been taking advantage of this (probably a little too much) and picking up items I’ve been eyeing for a while. First up was my Essie haul full of beautiful bright shades from the Spring 2012 Navigate Her collection and some past collections.
From left to right are Haute as Hello, Ole Caliente, Watermelon and Splash of Grenadine. 

Haute as Hello is a really pretty coral-peach that is a bright pastel (if that makes sense!).

Ole Caliente is from the Spring 2012 collection and is this amazingly bright coral red that I love! I’m wearing this on my toes right now and it’s such a fun colour.

Watermelon is a gorgeous bright pink toned red.

Splash of Grenadine is a beautiful pink/purple mixture that leans warm.

I also picked up (from left to right) Navigate Her, Turquoise & Caicos, Lapis of Luxury and Mesmerize.

Navigate Her is from the Spring 2012 collection and is a beauitful lightened apple green. It has too much yellow in it to be a mint green. I’m wearing it on my nails right now and I am loving it! It looks great with my skin tone and I highly recommend it.

Turquoise & Caicos is a turquoise shade that is summer in a bottle. I loved this shade when it first came out but couldn’t imagine wearing blues and greens so I passed but I’m glad I finally have it.

Lapis of Luxury is a lightened purple toned blue which I love! I’ve been craving a periwinkle type shade and this almost hits the spot.

Mesmerize is a true blue that looks amazing when applied.

Essie makes one of my favourite nail polish formulas as they generally apply really well with minimal coats. Some of the brighter shades require at least 2 coats but they dry down well. Essie retails for $8 in the US and about $20 in Australia. I bought mine for about $11 from Beauty Bay. I think the free shipping is still running so go check it out if you’re eyeing any of these shades.

Have you tried Essie before? What’s your favourite Essie polish?

    Loving all of these (apart from maybe Navigate Her but I'm not really a green person) – Essie isn't a brand I've used that much of, I think I bought a set when I first started blogging but they're long gone!

    I think I'd buy every one of these shades. I'm very much still in the summer frame of mind and these are all perfect!!
