essie summer 2017 swatches & review
Essie Sweet Soufflé – Summer 2017 (above). Oooh! A pretty pearly golden-flash white! That’s 3 coats with top coat. And my OPI Pro-Wide brush.
Essie Sweet Soufflé – Summer 2017 (above). Oooh! Same, but hopefully here I caught you the bluey sorta flash that’s hiding in the bottle. It’s very lovely and fluffy and soft.
Essie Blue-La-La – Summer 2017 (above). What an icy blue shade for summer! The formula here is a little thin, so that’s 3 I-don’t-wanna-level coats, and it dries down just a tiny bit darker than the bottle. And I tell ya what, if you were lucky enough to score a bottle of the blue Mint Candy Apple, you can pass on this one! Yay!
Essie Baguette Me Not – Summer 2017 (above). Hmmm.. I wonder if Essie knows that OPI already used that name, Baguette Me Not. No matter, OPI’s shade is a salmony thing but this Baguette seriously makes me want to eat macarons. She’s a beauty of a lilac that’s got a huge smash of blue in it. I love it. That’s 2 coats with top because top helps it look level.
Essie S’Il Vous Play – Summer 2017 (above). Whatta foil!!! For realz. This thing is such a happy Essie shade that it makes me smile very, very big. It’s so not their wheelhouse, but they totally nailed it. That’s 2 easy coats to a smooth finish. There’s no top there. And, in this shot, you can see it’s awesomely reflective and mega-shiny – almost too bright!
Essie S’il Vous Play – Summer 2017 (above). If I tilt my fingers away from the light, hopefully you see the rosy pink foil that brings me the big smiles when it’s smacked in the face with light. I’m diggin’ it. Go, Essie!
Oh! Wait!! If you buy this one, do me a favour and Fairy Dust dat sh*t, okay? Do it and then shoot it outside and tag me on the IG so I can witness the amazeballzness of it. Did I Dust mine and take it out for a spin? Yes. But I’m not going to ruin it for you. Do it. Just trust me.
Essie Fondant of You – Summer 2017 (above). Without direct light, this peachy-apricot shows wicked stealthy golden shimmer. Golly – she’s pretty.
Essie Fondant of You – Summer 2017 (above). And if I smack these 2 coats with more light, lookit how shiny and golden she becomes! Whaaaat? I love this shimmer! How perfect is that for summer? 100% perfect.
Essie Éclair My Love – Summer 2017 (above). And finally, this lovely just-a-touch-muted red. If you were running out the door, you could OCW this delicious red, but I did two coats just because I wanted huge saturation. She’s vibrant and makes me smile. I like when mah digits make me smile!
So there you go fellow polish friends! It’s your Essie Summer 2017 Collection Swatches!
This collection is slated for release June 13, 2017, but many places already have it out because they don’t read the huge print on the boxes that says “Do Not Sell Before June 13”. If you’re one of the people that neeeeed to have it now, I leave you to search the interwebs for it. If you can wait ‘til release date, I’ll betcha you’ll find it at amazon.com, amazon.ca, tradesecrets.ca, ulta.com and probably even sparklecanada.com.
So, whatcha puttin’ on your #GimmeThat list, huh? You know I neeeed to know!
