Essie Summer 2010

    Good afternoon, Dear Reader!

    I have something good for you today: Essie sent me samples of their Summer 2010 Collection, and I have swatches for you.  Well, five swatches and one manicure.

    All six shades applied very well, not streaky or hard to apply at all.  They're well saturated, and the only one I used three coats of was the one described as sheer, all the others are two-coaters.  The variety of color in the collection is really good, and there are some seriously good colors here.

    Demure Vixen is the only shimmer in the collection, a kind of pinkish taupe.

    Miss Matched is the one described as sheer, and at three coats it's sort of a semi-sheer creme.

    From here, the colors are much more intense.  Vermillionaire is a really vivid red orange creme.

    Pretty Edgy is a medium green creme.

    Knockout Pout is a great hot pink creme, much lighter than most hot pinks.

    Finally, Haute as Hello is the one I'm wearing, and the picture is with top coat.  It's kind of a cross between coral and cantaloupe, and it's a creme.

    That, Dear Reader, is Essie's Summer 2010 Collection, and I'm really, really happy with them.  They're great colors, apply well, and are two-coaters, so I really can't ask for more.

    That's it for today.  Until tomorrow, love and nail polish to you!
